Message from the Director
Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Hobart has a proud tradition stretching back to the early 1800’s and ours is a story of courage, sacrifice, struggle, vision, commitment and above all of faith and trust in God.
Catholic education in Tasmania and across Australia owes a great deal to those who have gone before us, priests, religious and families and lay educators who worked, sometimes in difficult conditions, to provide quality Catholic education to young people.
Today, Catholic schools and colleges in the Archdiocese of Hobart remain committed to education in the Catholic tradition being guided by the person and example of Jesus who is the cornerstone of the Catholic school. As a consequence, everything we do, learn and teach in our schools and colleges can be a vehicle for discovering and announcing the Good News of Jesus, who lived and taught a Way that can positively affect each human heart and mind, a Way that can contribute towards creating a society enlightened by what is best for human development, for our communities and our planet.

Pope Francis’ visible commitment to Christ’s humility, love and compassion are well known, as are his joy and tenderness. We take courage and aspire to follow his example as we relate to our young people, opening up with them the treasures of deep and rich learning… developing each day the knowledge, understanding and skills that are essential for meaningful and fruitful living in this digital age.
Our Catholic schools and colleges acknowledge families as the first and principal educators of their children. Our teachers work with families to support students to recognise and achieve their potential, to believe in themselves and to have pride in their own achievements and abilities.
Our teachers share common hopes and expectations with families who want their children to become independent, confident and well-balanced young persons who are eager, competent, life-long learners. They work together to prepare children for living a productive and meaningful life.
Above all, Catholic schools and colleges strive to develop in children faith, spirituality, life-giving values, and a clear sense of right and wrong to give greater meaning and purpose to all that they do. Families and teachers want our students to be good citizens and people of integrity.
