Philosophy

The aim of Catholic education is to produce quality education which prepares convinced Christians to take their places in our society with confidence and with developed ability to help make a better world. The philosophy of St. Mary Magdalen School centers upon the four aspects of message, community, service and worship as seen in the light of the following aims of Catholic education:

  • To create within the school structure an atmosphere of enablement wherein a faith community may be established.
  • To provide an environment that fosters the intellectual development of each child within the context of a technology-integrated traditional curriculum.
  • To encourage hopeful futurists who can face squarely the problems in our society but still believe strongly that good can overpower.

It is through the message of Christianity, the support of community, the challenge of service and the experience of worship that this can be achieved.
