Nazareth Catholic College
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10).
At Nazareth Catholic Community, our aim is to engage with families - connecting across the whole-of-life journey; from newborns and pre-schoolers, to primary and secondary students and into adulthood and the senior years.
At Nazareth, we provide more than just an education - we are a community. A community of faith, where we are called as “people of justice” to reach out to others and make the world a better place. We provide students with endless opportunities, and our promise is that they will graduate knowing they can help lead the world, and influence positive change.
At the heart of our College's curriculum is the development of our Catholic culture, social justice teachings and religious education. Founded and centred on the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels, students have the opportunity to understand, reflect and broaden their awareness of the world around them.
Our catholic culture and social justice teachings provide opportunity for students to understand, reflect and broaden their awareness of the world around them. They acquire the knowledge to realise they can make a difference in the world.
Throughout the year, our students are passionately dedicated and committed to organizing and participating in a variety of initiatives, discussions and fundraisers aimed to raise awareness of global and social issues including poverty, bullying, human rights, refugees and asylum seekers, racial discrimination and homelessness.
Fundraising for Catholic Charities:
Nazareth continues to support Catholic Charities across both of its primary & secondary campuses and the donations are from both campuses.
The students raised $1503.10 for Catholic Charities.
The junior school raised just under $600.
In May 2017, we held our annual Patrons Week across both our campuses as a celebration for Catholic Education Week. Each of our five patrons was celebrated, one each day over the week, with various activities and particular prayers and reflections read over the loudspeaker of the school. Celebrations took place on Friday 19 May in support of Catholic Charities. From lunch onwards, students were invited onto the oval where there was a BBQ, healthy food stall, music, games, and activities. The day culminated with a celebration/liturgy in the St Sebastian Centre (Gymnasium). Students and staff showed off their gifts and talents in a Battle of the Patrons fun activity, and we remembered in prayer our patrons and wonderful leaders in Catholic Education who have shown the way for us to follow.
(The donations amount includes money raised since 2017).
