Celebrating 200 Years of Catholic Education
On Monday 24 May, the Archdiocese of Sydney celebrated a Mass marking 200 years of learning in Catholic Schools in Australia. The bicentenary of Catholic education has the national theme of ‘Faith in the future’. The theme reflects the core purpose of Catholic education to form students in their faith, and to provide an education that enables their graduates to make a meaningful contribution to the world.
At St Clare’s we are also reminded of the great commitment made by the Poor Clare Sisters in establishing St Clare’s College in 1884. We look to build on the great work of the Sisters to continue to provide a Catholic education for future generations of students in a world that is rapidly changing and poses new challenges for Catholic school communities. As the motto suggests, we have faith that we can face these challenges and continue to strengthen the mission of Catholic education in Australia.
