Welcome to 2021- the dawn of a new era in Catholic education. As Catholic Education Sandhurst Limited moves into this new phase of its life, it is important to remind ourselves of our motto and reflect upon what it means- Believe! Imagine! Serve! This is a beautiful reminder to us all that our Catholic Faith must be at the heart of all we do in our mission of education. Our focus in educating within the Catholic school always must be lively, outward looking, ever ready to serve, to uplift, to bring the other to the fore and never with any sense other than a desire to enhance and improve. This must be reinforced with contemporary practice and pedagogy in the core business of teaching and learning, while anchored by the rich teachings of our Faith. We are people who believe in hope and we always strive to bring each within our care to their full potential
Here in the Diocese of Sandhurst, the Catholic Education Office remains strongly committed to working with each school and parish community and the broader Catholic education community of Victoria in a spirit of co-responsibility. We continue to commit to shaping the culture, enhancing the performance and building the capacity in schools and the Catholic Education Office.
Our theme for 2021 is Faith in Our Future. As educators and as a people of hope, we remain mindful that we must look to the future with great confidence, knowing that God wants us to be preparing for tomorrow, always learning, always open to new ideas and new possibilities filled with promise. The Vision Statement for the Catholic Education Office asks us to remain always aware that we, in education, play a key role in the mission of the Church, that we are a community which seeks to nurture the best within one another and that all we are, all we do and all we seek to be must reflect the values embodied in the within the Gospels.
