“Educating our children today to nurture in them hope, courage and the capacity to be Christian leaders of tomorrow.” (Mission Statement)
Stanhope students and educators are lifelong learners, critical consumers and producers of knowledge. They collaborate, think critically and communicate effectively.
Learning is personalised to meet each student’s diverse needs. A range of data, research and evidence-based learning informs our teaching practice. Learning has no boundaries, and we support learning opportunities for students in a variety of formal and informal contexts.
The mission of our community is expressed through the core values of:
Sr Mary Xavier Williams
St Francis of Assisi
Bishop Kevin Manning DD
Pope St John XXIII
Our mission is lived out through the four focus areas of College life and tied to the Student Leadership Structure:
Welcoming Jesus Christ as the centre of our College life
Examining all decisions through the lens of impact upon the diverse learning needs of all students
Embracing and utilising community voice and involvement
Building capacity of staff to use data to inform one’s own work and student learning
Believing in the potential of every child and passionately holding high expectations
Collaborating for an innovative, sustainable and inclusive learning environment
