At Caroline Chisholm Catholic College we are inspired by the words and deeds of our namesake, Caroline Chisholm. Nearly 200 years ago, she modelled to all exemplary dedication and sacrifice. Her faith was an inspiration and she led a deeply spiritual life, establishing schools and agencies to support those around her.
Taking heart from her legacy, we outline our mission to:
- strive to live Gospel truths and values.
- seek to provide a holistic education
- endeavour to inspire and empower all members of the college community to reach their full potential.
We know that learning and teaching are about forming strong relationships with each individual built on trust, respect and love. In this website, you will find an innovative learning and teaching programme, complemented by fine facilities, resources and a progressive culture. Most of all, the College has a dedicated staff committed to providing the best possible education for our young people in the 21st century. The College provides an education with ever strengthening global and technological perspectives. This is reinforced by our Information and Communication Technologies as well as established links with schools in China, Japan, Italy and the UK.
With its network of three Schools, Caroline Chisholm Catholic College provides a Catholic education that meets the needs of all students and families in the Western Suburbs. While it has an academic focus, it is also a school where a broad range of subjects are offered at each year level and where many opportunities are provided to broaden life skills. We seek to form a community of students, parents and staff focused on the values of the Gospel where, following the example of Jesus, we nurture a concern for all people, a sense of social justice and an active faith life.
