Mission Statement

​In the spirit of St Teresa of Jesus (Avila) and St Marcellin Champagnat we bring Christ to our community as we educate and witness through the seven foundations of our College.


St Teresa’s and St Marcellin’s determination, drive and daring emerged from a belief that God would provide, especially during times of trial and suffering. We pursue our dreams with courage, trusting in faith that God walks with us.

“Father if it is possible let this cup pass me by. Nevertheless, let it be as you, not I, would have it.” (Mt 26:39)


Our spirituality calls us to see the action of God in all things. We experience God’s love in silence, prayer, sacred moments and in all aspects of our lives.

“There is only Christ: he is everything and he is in everything”. (Col 3:11)

Family Spirit

Our way of relating to each other is characterised by love and forgiveness, support and help, forgetfulness of self, openness to others and joy. We develop a spirituality that is strongly relational and affective, relating to one another as Brothers and Sisters.

“They met in houses for the breaking of bread they shared their food gladly and generously; they praised God and were looked up to by everyone. “ (Acts 2:46)


To bring up children properly we must love them; we must love them all equally. We bring God’s presence as we seek to immerse ourselves in the lives of each other by meeting others in their own space, and by creating opportunities to be involved in their lives.

“For where two or three meet in my home, I shall be present with them.“ (Mt 18:20)


To adopt simplicity is our way of relating to God and others. We strive to be persons of integrity, humility and sincerity and to be truthful, open-hearted, transparent and easily understood in our relationships.

“There is one thing we are proud of that we have always treated everybody with the reverence and simplicity which came from God.” (2 Cor 1:2)


Our lived experience within a Christian community finds inspiration from our belief in Jesus and our desire to follow His example. In order to live our lives according to the Gospel, we challenge our community to be informed by, and reflect upon, our knowledge in the light of the Catholic tradition.

“If there is anyone who needs wisdom he must ask God who gives to all freely/ungrudgingly.”(Jam 1:5)

In the way of Mary

Mary’s journey of faith is the perfect model for our spiritual journey. We embrace Mary’s spirit by responding wholeheartedly, yet gently and humbly to God’s will, placing our confidence in God while pondering on the life of Jesus.

“Let it be done to me according to your will.” (Lk 1:38)​
