Our charism is grounded in the formative work of the parish, the spirituality of St Benedict and the Sisters of The Good Samaritan of The Order of St Benedict who founded the school in 1951. These find expression in the house names of NUGENT, BENEDICT and SAMARITAN.
The early school motto; In all things may God be glorified, gives expression to the ancient Benedictine philosophy to live by paying attention to the fullness of life. This finds resonance in the current school motto, Living Loving and Learning in Christ, which draws upon the Good Samaritan charism; of recognising the powerless and marginalised and responding with COMPASSION, JUSTICE and WISDOM.
