AIM AND MISSION OF CATHOLIC EDUCATION
St. Kilian's School exists in the midst of the community of the Parish. The school has a mission arising from the very nature of the church to proclaim the gospel for the good of society and salvation of all people.
The Catholic school is committed to the development of the whole person, since in Christ all human values find their fulfilment and unity.
Herein lies the specifically Catholic character of the school. Its duty to cultivate human values and dignity found in the person of Christ. The Catholic school aims to be the critical communication of human culture and the total formation of the individual, so that it presents a synthesis of culture, faith and life.
The school realises its educative mission by the subjects it teaches, the methods it uses, the values it embraces, the atmosphere it engenders and the witness to the gospel it gives to the community. Both religious education and the formation of faith have an indispensable role in the life of the Catholic school.
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS AS COMMUNITY
Our school is seen as a meeting place for those who express Christian values in education. It is a community whose aim is the transmission of values for living and the promotion of a faith-relationship with Christ. The community aspect of St. Kilian's school is continually nourished and stimulated by the word of Christ expressed in sacred scripture, tradition and in the lives of people, past and present, who bear witness to the word.
St. Kilian's School not only provides Religious Education to those who already embrace the Catholic faith but also serves families and their children who are searching for faith. Our school has a public role within society by participating in a myriad of educational activities.
The organisational processes within St. Kilian's School, therefore must be founded on the principles aforementioned and that these processes should include the participation of all members of the school community.
