Why Choose Us

Students in our schools have an opportunity to experience learning as an exciting challenge and a lifelong endeavour. They do this through a curriculum that is student-centred and teaches that knowledge brings responsibility.

Our schools strive for excellent educational outcomes by enlivening the minds, hearts and souls of our children in a faith-centered learning environment.

Spiritual and character development

A joyful and faith-centered environment enriches and enlivens the minds, hearts and souls of children.

Faith, Learning and Transformation

We offer students and their families the experience of a Catholic community and education focused on faith, learning and transformation in Jesus Christ. Our schools provide a range of activities that focus on the spiritual and character development of students whilst inviting them to grow in relationship with God and each other to find meaning and purpose in their lives.

Restorative Practices

We expect high standards of student behaviour based on respect and kindness for each other. Catholic Education Wilcannia-Forbes has policies relating to pastoral care and wellbeing, behaviour management and bullying. These policies and restorative practice programs are based firmly on Catholic beliefs and values and focus on building quality relationships and fostering resilience. Our schools are committed to creating safe and supportive learning environments for our students, staff and families.

Achieving Potential

Our schools offer the same curriculum as Government and independent schools, whilst at the same time integrating a Catholic vision of life. Expectations of achievement and conduct are high. The growth and development of each child are fostered by providing pathways for them to achieve their potential.

Our dedicated teachers address the individual needs of each child. They maintain high expectations for all students and encourage them to discover their creativity and unique talents.

Supportive Community

Our school communities have a commitment to support families who wish to access Catholic schooling for their children. No Catholic student will be denied enrollment because their family is unable to pay school fees. Direct debit facilities are available and confidential arrangements for affordable payments can be organised.

Our schools are well known for engaging parents, inspiring teachers and committed leadership that creates a culture of caring in our schools. Students thrive in a community that is invested in their development as a whole person.
