Catholic education fulfils its evangelising mission
through the development, support and engagement of its schools. Our witness –
as individuals, as school communities, and as an organisation – is central to
how authentically we live the mission. How we manage behaviours in the
classroom and the staffroom; the underlying values with which we design
curriculum and develop pedagogy; the underlying vision with which we set goals
and undertake school renewal; the approach we have to student wellbeing and the
shape of the religious life of the school all give expression to our witness.
It is the Catholic school as a whole, in all that it does, and how it does,
which brings the ‘good news’ to those within the school and the broader
community. It is the organisation as a whole, through its policies and
structures, ways of operating and sense of identity which gives witness to
gospel values and the vision of Jesus.
