Principal's Welcome

​​Laidler, Mick.jpg

​​At Assisi Catholic College, we encourage all our students to become self-directed learners who are engaged in their learning and interested in developing their many talents in all aspects of College life. Our College motto of Shape Your Tomorrow nominates the student as the “shaper" of their destiny. Our dedicated staff offer highly focussed and guided instruction which encourages a combination of collaborative and individual learning but, in the end, the student is responsible for their tomorrow.​​

Connectedness is the key to our College processes and structures. Students from Prep to Grade 12 are connected through our expansive curriculum, strong Franciscan tradition, Family Team system and College Habits and Values. ​​​

What do parents want in a school?​

After 40 years in education and being a parent myself, I believe it comes down to three things that parents expect from a quality school:

  • They want their child to be safe and connected to the school community.​

  • They want the school to “get their child to where they want to go". Providing strong academic and vocational pathways.

  • They want the school to enhance the parent's work of shaping morally strong, independent young adults in the Catholic tradition. Young people who add to the fabric of our society.

At Assisi Catholic College these objectives are foremost in our teaching practices.
