St Francis College


Recommended Posts

Our Franciscan spirituality and values are important to us. Our teaching and learning and pastoral frameworks endeavor to create a climate where we value each individual in the spirit of hope, care, and compassion. We work for justice and sustainability.
Our College Mission and Vision statements indicate that we strive to provide an education that challenges students to grow and learn. We strive to provide this education in a family environment where students feel safe and supported. Our College family is rich in diversity -we celebrate our rich cultural and linguistic backgrounds, but we are united in our commitment to a Franciscan education and way of life.
At the heart of our College is a recognition that faith and education must be in harmony to ensure that our students can take their place in society as citizens with values, skills, and an understanding of the complex issues they will confront in their journey life.
This journey at the College involves a close partnership between students, families, and staff. We hope our actions reflect our beliefs. St Francis challenged us to "Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words." We believe our students are our finest ambassadors.
We, the community of St Francis College, Crestmead, shall reflect in every aspect of our lives the values, beliefs, and traditions of our Catholic faith. We will strive for inner peace and freedom from fear through prayer and reflection. We will nurture a climate that encourages wholeness, esteem, hope, care, compassion, and understanding. We will accept each other as individuals with unique talents and gifts. We endeavor at all times to be responsible models for justice and the Franciscan spirit of poverty.
Parents and teachers will work together to foster our students a desire to learn and encourage the development of basic skills necessary to achieve their full potential in an ever-changing world. Students will be encouraged to make decisions and commitments, which will help them grow spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially.
We believe that God has given us the responsibility of stewardship over Creation. It is the work of students, staff, and parents to contribute to the protection and promotion of natural and human welfare to advance God's creative activity. With St Francis and St Clare, we will "follow the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ and walk in His Footsteps" in simplicity and harmony.
Our vision is to be a new Catholic school inspired by the Franciscan values of simplicity and harmony. A school where everyone works together so that our students can grow and learn, be supported and loved, be informed and empowered, practice forgiveness and cooperation, and become lifelong learners. A school that acknowledges the importance of relationships through the active development of positive partnerships with our families, our St Maximilian Kolbe Parish, and our local community.
