Catholic Education South Australia

Our Values

Belonging. Service. Loving Kindness. Excellence.

Belonging: we are part of a school family; we welcome and respect each other.

Service: we give to others and show our care.

Loving Kindness: through love, we share kindness and joy, and we are grateful.

Excellence: we strive for our best in all we do.

Our Vision

Our vision comes from Psalm 100:2 in the Old Testament: “Serve the Lord with Joy!”

The greatest lesson that Saint John Bosco instilled in his students was to serve the Lord, at all times and everywhere in joy!  In keeping with the spirit of Saint John Bosco and Saint Maria Mazzarello, we serve the Lord with joy in our education of the whole child to create citizens who possess responsible social attributes, knowledge, understanding, enthusiasm and compassion, and a love for lifelong learning to make a difference in our world.

Our Mission

We are committed to the development of a Catholic school which:

  • teaches and lives the story of Jesus in a way that leads the community to reflect upon and apply the values of the Gospel in our everyday lives
  • proclaims our Salesian tradition of service
  • commits to excellence 
  • values and nurtures the dignity and uniqueness of each person
  • practises social justice, inclusivity and equity
  • provides a safe, secure and loving environment
  • values and nurtures our partnership with the Parish and families in an expression of a true Christian community
