Our Catholic College

Vision and Mission Statements

Vision Statement

We, the members of The Cathedral College community, accept the Gospel invitation "I have come that you might have life – life in all its fullness" (John 10:10) as incorporated in our College Motto “Come, live life in all its fullness.”

We, at The Cathedral College, create community through sharing faith, living out Gospel values and accepting change as part of renewal.

Within our Catholic community, we work together to realise the College Motto by encouraging all members to develop their individual gifts, to deepen their personal spirituality and to recognise and celebrate the giftedness of others.

"The charisms of both Catherine McAuley and Edmund Rice call our community to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with their God" (Micah 6:8)

Inspired by their example and in keeping with the Gospel ideal and the College Motto, we are committed to

  • witnessing Christ's presence in the world and making a difference through just and peaceful actions that show our reverence for all people and the environment
  • living as an integral and vital part of the wider community, acknowledging that our eternal home is with God
  • celebrating life in all its fullness by encouraging excellence and enthusiastic participation in all activities
  • nurturing and supporting community members on their journey to accepting individual responsibility for their own self-development in response to the opportunities provided
  • accepting, protecting and encouraging the unique giftedness of each community member
  • providing opportunities for growth across all areas of human endeavour, including the spiritual, the academic, the social, the personal, the cultural, the emotional and the physical
  • working together to build a community of support for each other within our College
  • acknowledging the special circumstances of boarding students and supporting their particular needs
  • valuing those traditions of the past by which the ethos of this College is influenced.

 

Mission Statement

As students, staff, parents and friends of The Cathedral College Community, we strive by word and action to respond to Christ’s call to "Come, live life in all its fullness." (John 10:10).
