Mission & Vision
Champagnat Catholic College Pagewood is a Catholic Marist College for boys and is a community of learning, life and faith. Students at the College are empowered to embrace all opportunities presented; spiritually, academically, physically, culturally and socially with a determination to strive to the highest standard with both virtue and courage.
Our Marist Charism, through the model of St Marcellin Champagnat and the Gospel messages, are used as examples for the boys to ensure that we grow fine young men with strong minds and gentle hearts where Jesus is known and loved, where each boy belongs and the dignity of all is respected.
The three pillars of Ministry, Learning and Wellbeing are a focus across Champagnat Catholic College in all facets of College life and are demonstrated in word and action. The College motto - KNOW GOD'S LOVE - is an expression of these three pillars demonstrated through:
KNOW - to be present to, to witness and to learn
GOD'S - at the heart, and centre, of all we do is the recognition of our Catholic and Marist heritage
LOVE - seen through the wellbeing and support of all within the community
To KNOW GOD'S LOVE is the aim of all we do and is the essence of our work as a truly Catholic, Marist and vibrant learning community.
Our mission is achieved by placing the highest value on:
- Social Justice
Education of young people requires diligence and commitment, patience and kindness. We value individual difference and creativity and promote self-worth, encouraging students to reach their highest potential.
Spirituality will develop where there is understanding of the depth of love held for each of us by Jesus and Mary. We seek to provide an opportunity for each person to explore their faith in depth, building on the shared faith of parents and of the faith community.
Community binds us together in God's love, reminding us of our shared dignity so that we support, promote and foster mutual respect for all who belong to the Marcellin family.
Social Justice compels us to work especially for those in need within the human family, offering them the opportunity to develop their gifts so that we may grow together in faith and as compassionate human beings.
