By the Sainte-Thérèse Catholic College
Here at St Teresa’s Catholic College, we see the value of a year-round Catholic education, so this is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this during Catholic Education Week.
As a Marist college, we strive to provide a high quality holistic education to our students.
We aim to make a positive difference in their lives, but also to reach out to the wider community by challenging them to live the message of Jesus and reach their full potential as compassionate and contributing members of the communities where they live. .
As a Marist community, we associate our work and our way of doing things with the Marist traits of humility, simplicity and modesty.
During Catholic Education Week, our College will adopt the 2022 theme of “Communities of Faith, Hope and Love”.
The personal spiritual experience of Saint Teresa of Avila, who believed that God is love and that true prayer is nothing but the expression of a relationship of friendship, is lived in the daily life of the College .
We hope that the St Teresa community of students, staff and families will join in our joy in celebrating this special week on our university calendar.
Our College is firmly committed to contemporary learning and teaching frameworks. Engaging students in a love of learning is a priority.
We appreciate how far our students have come not only to achieve their educational goals, but also to become the person and life they dream of. Hence the motto of our College “Dare to dream”.
The development of personal values and positive attributes are key markers along this journey, and we are here to support our students every step of the way.
Principal David McInnes, with over 40 years of experience in Catholic education, has set up the Individual Career Pathway program here at St Teresa’s to ensure that our students achieve their individual goals.
Students are individually coached to understand how they learn and to identify their individual learning needs, as well as the skills needed to pursue their chosen path.
Our students enjoy the opportunity to pursue their studies in a beautiful natural bush setting, which includes our peaceful bush chapel.
