St Bernard of Clairvaux captured the essence of our educative mission:
Some seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge: that is curiosity; others seek knowledge that they may themselves be known: that is vanity; but there are still others who seek knowledge in order to serve and edify others, and that is charity.
At Catholic Education Western Australia, we strive to empower our diverse and vibrant community of 162 schools to make a positive impact on every student and to bring our vision for learning to life.
What is Catholic Schooling?
Catholic schooling is the meeting place of culture and the gospel. The school constructs a critical dialogue between culture and the gospel. The lives of staff, students and families explore the world in which they live in the light of the gospel. Our life can be based upon reason and faith. Catholic schooling provides a “light to the world”.
