Mandurah Catholic College Community

 

Shaping a better future

Education in its most authentic sense cannot be reduced to academic outcomes: successful education must encompass a commitment to shaping and forming persons, attitudes, societies, cultures and traditions. What our children and youth absorb in these formative years sets the stage for their adult and family life and this will be reflected in their children and grandchildren in an unbroken chain.

The disturbing data on today’s youth culture, including increasing incidence of depression, bullying, and domestic violence, makes a strong case for the need to consciously equip our youth with life skills, and to instil in them a sense of identity, compassion and concern for others.

It gives me hope to see so many Mandurah Catholic students developing into well-balanced, caring and fulfilled young people who will become the life force of our world.

As Principal, I encourage all students to make use of the opportunities the College provides to find those things that mean the most to them and that really make them ‘come alive’.  This is the time to discover what it is that you will go ‘all out’ for. Because the possibilities for success will be greatly increased when you’re doing something you have a passion for.

 

Fathers Day

On the weekend we celebrate Father’s Day and this Friday the College welcomed over 250 fathers, grandfathers and male role models to the Primary Father’s Day breakfast, held in the undercover area, and with the Year 9 students in a liturgy and morning tea.

This has always been a special event that enables the men of our community to experience the College environment with their child. Students were very proud to act as host and many took this opportunity to show their guests around the grounds.

Similar to our Mother’s Day morning tea and breakfast, the Mandurah Catholic College community also takes time to celebrate the importance of the men in our children’s lives and their engagement in education.
