Vision and Mission

At St Raphael’s we believe we are called to live in a spirit of harmony, committed to be messengers of hope and healing in our world.

As a Catholic School we commit ourselves to:

  • Celebrating being Catholic:
    Our school exists to make a difference in our world. The message of Jesus is central to our lives, and we celebrate and demonstrate our faith through continuous growth as an authentic Catholic Community.
  • Ensuring quality teaching and learning:
    Our aim is to nurture discerning and enquiring minds so that students are actively engaged in their learning, acquiring strong foundations for present and future learning in an ever changing world.
  • Fostering harmony, hope and healing:
    We aim to provide a welcoming and caring environment where all can feel safe, and experience a sense of belonging. We give witness to our faith through developing relationships based on mutual respect, trust and by responding justly to the needs of all through living our mission on a daily basis.

We welcome opportunities to unite our community in a common vision with the involvement and partnership of parents, parish and the wider community.
