Catholic schools teach the same curriculum as government schools. Expectations of achievement and conduct are high. With a strong focus on the individual, a broad curriculum caters for a wide range of interests and abilities.
Catholic schools offer highly qualified and professional teachers who cater to the diverse learning needs of our students.
