As a member of the Catholic College Sale Marist-Sion family:
“I am strong of mind, gentle of heart and loved by God. Inspired by the life and message of Jesus and the example of Mary, I live with courage, simplicity and hope. I belong to a faith and learning community where I am known, cared for and valued.
I will live this by welcoming and accepting the diversity in others, building relationships and making a difference in a complex and changing world. I will be open to learning opportunities that will enrich and enhance my personal journey. I will value and care for the environment, serve the marginalised and positively contribute to my community.
I strive to be genuine, honest and will embrace the challenge of achieving my full potential.”
All within our school community contribute to the experience that allows us to find meaning and purpose in our life as we celebrate and foster our faith together. Through prayer, liturgy, social justice initiatives and learning programs we promote Christian values.
At Catholic College Sale we provide effective faith inspired leadership that is inclusive of all within our community while valuing clearly communicated goals that provides growth and fosters responsibility within each individual. We strive to keep student learning at the centre of our educational focus through distributive decision making and the promotion of best practice.
Learning and Teaching
At Catholic College Sale we foster an environment that encourages all learners in our community to strive for excellence and extend their potential. Continual reflection and improvement cultivates learning opportunities that are personalised to the individual journey. Our belief is that effective learning is built on engagement, growth and excellence whilst nurturing the whole person. Students who are challenged, cared for and nurtured are more resilient learners and active citizens.
