CRC Caroline Springs Mission Statement


Our school motto, Live Fully Act Justly, makes two distinct claims on us as a Catholic school. It invites us to recognise and appreciate the ‘fullness of life’ that the College community enjoys.
Our students are vital, enthusiastic young people, who are connected to families who are genuinely interested in them, and parishes which have nurtured their minds and spirits.

Connection to the Federation of Catholic Regional College means we enjoy the collegial support of others to whom we are connected in story and practice. We have access not only to resources and materials but to the wisdom, encouragement and support of others who share our mission.

The facilities, those in existence and those planned for, provide us with the means of incorporating the latest in educational theory and technology. This opens us to possibilities which are exciting and new.

The staff who choose to work at Catholic Regional College Caroline Springs are skilled professionals. In choosing to work at a new Catholic College, the staff make a strong commitment to hard work and shared responsibility.

We are indeed privileged.

However, our claim to be a school community which acts justly challenges us to never take for granted what we enjoy.

We are called to ensure that our day to day contact reflects our commitment to be just to ourselves and to others. We are to seek actively for others what we ourselves experience; to share what we have, to question why others live without in a world which has enough for all, and to challenge structures and beliefs which work to keep people in poverty and oppression. Moreover, we are called to guard against complacency and comfort which can mask the call for us to do what is right and good and holy.

In striving to live fully and act justly, we commit ourselves to being a community which builds on four pillars.

Learning: in all forms, styles and situations, formal and informal, mutual and collegial
Stewardship: of all in and of God’s creation: self, others and the world
Compassion: which, guided by respect, moves us to action
Prayer: as a way of living and knowing.

In all we do, say and are, our mission and privilege is to invite all in our community into a life lived in relationship with the God we proclaim and seek, in a world which awaits the fullness of God’s love.
