About our school

We are preparing our young women for an unknown future and this calls for a future-focused school, one that provides a learning environment that develops faith-filled, adaptive thinkers who influence our society for the greater good. 

In an environment of growth and opportunity, our young women are offered dynamic, organic and interconnected learning experiences as we seek out opportunities to partner with industry, agencies and tertiary institutions, so students are engaged in active, authentic, inquiry-based learning experiences. 

We are a community proud of our inclusive and nurturing environment. Our young women are not afraid to take risks and grow from their experiences and adventures. 

Such bravery will at times bring disappointment and setbacks however, we know you cannot learn without failing, it is in this experience that we develop and grow becoming the best version of ourselves. 

This cultivation of a growth mindset in every student, where learners are empowered and learning is personalised, is at the heart of who we are as a community. 

We collaborate with students to develop their wellbeing, spirituality, physicality, and emotional and academic intelligence, as our staff aspire to instill within each and every girl a sense of deep worth and Catholic values that will equip them to bravely face the challenges life brings, and act courageously as global citizens.
