When we think about our community here at our College, it has been built over the years by many people working together involving students, parents and caregivers, staff and the wider community. No individual can wait for things to go well as we need to look out and care for each other.
Some examples of care at the college have been especially shown with Year 12 who have completed their Higher School Certificate examinations and are now planning the next phase in their lives. With our departing Year 12 students it was great to see their desire to come back to the Schofields campus and celebrate their graduation with the rest of the student body.
At the same time our incoming Year 7 2017 students joined us at Schofields recently for their Transition Day. During the day our current students, particularly the Peer Support students, were very welcoming and connections were being built by both the current and new students working together. Again we were witness to a sense of community building through students being aware of others and caring for others.
We are all challenged as our motto states ‘the Way passes through this land’ as St John Paul II Catholic College places the student at the centre of learning. It is our strong desire that our students are able to develop spiritually, emotionally, physically and intellectually to their own personal best.
The College is proud of the excellent academic results of our students as we continue to promote personal bests in their endeavours. We also celebrate our students’ willingness to embrace our values and ideals, based on the teachings of Jesus.
