Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Our school motto is “Certum Pete Finem”; this is Latin for, “Seek a definite goal”. If you want to become successful in life, you must have a definite goal — where you want to go, what you want to become, where you want to see yourself in the future. A definite goal will help you to remain focused on the work that matters most.
Founded on the Catholic Marist values of humility, simplicity and modesty, we are guided by the example of St Marcellin Champagnat, our founder, and aim to produce resilient young people who are eager to make a difference in the world.
