School Vision Statement
is a school community
in the Catholic tradition,
founded in faith,
challenged by Gospel values,
in all areas of school life.
The motto of Cathedral School that underpins all that we do is:
Faith • Values • Excellence
This motto is taken from our Vision statement as a continual reminder of the vision that we have for the students, teachers and community of Cathedral School – that we are a faith-filled community, inspired by
Jesus Christ, that sets high ideals and expectations for all.
“Its task is fundamentally a synthesis of culture and faith, and a synthesis
of life and faith. The first is reached by integrating all different aspects
of human knowledge through the subjects taught, in the light of the
Gospel; the second in the growth of the virtues characteristic of the
Christian.” (Congregation for the Catholic Education, The Catholic School, 1977)
We have developed symbols, colours and rituals based on a process of renewal that began in 2013.
