The Experience of Teaching
an opportunity to serve in the liberating, challenging mission of the Church in education
a life giving professional career with the chance to make a difference, to touch lives and inspire imagination and creativity
an understanding of the power of education to draw out the God-given potential of others
a sense of belonging to a community rooted in faith with high quality continuing professional development and pastoral care
an experience of a learning community founded on love, co-operation, solidarity, truth, justice and the common good
a community of colleagues who offer each other support and share learning
The Challenge for you
to acknowledge that the person you teach is more important than the subject you teach
to draw out the full human potential of every pupil in an environment of love as a co-creator with God and parents
to be realistic in your expectations of yourself and others and to seek to develop a balanced lifestyle
to live a life that reflects the values and simplicity of the Gospel as proclaimed by the Catholic Church
to engage in continuous professional development to develop yourself and the pupils you teach towards full human potential.
Do you wish to
be a part of this philosophy and vision?
contribute to holistic education and the search for excellence?
belong to a vibrant community and recognise the presence of God?
And are you
an aspiring or serving teacher?
in sympathy with the vision of Catholic education?
able to be approved by the Church in terms of “religious belief and character”?
