Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome

Thank you for your interest in St Paul’s Catholic College, Manly. As specialists in the education of young men, we understand the importance of finding the right school for your son.

St Paul’s is a safe and inclusive community that offers an authentic, professional Catholic education, delivered with care and compassion. Our teaching staff are committed to knowing and understanding the learning needs of every student and ensuring that he experiences success. We have high expectations of our young men backed up by strong support and the clear and consistent boundaries that provide them with structure and room to grow.

Our students’ successes are wide ranging and built on a foundation of mutual respect, and self-discipline. We are proud to celebrate the success of all our students, from the field of academia to business, cultural and sporting life, recognising and nurturing their individual gifts and passions.

As a Catholic faith community, we work to build relationships that are life-giving, based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. The Gospel values of love, compassion and justice and forgiveness underpin our student efforts to shape young men who will live lives of meaning and purpose. Men who will not only find happiness and success in life, but strive to bring happiness and success to others.

Thank you for considering St Paul’s for your son’s secondary school education. We look forward to meeting you, and to forging a strong and supportive partnership between school and home that will help your son to realise his full potential.
