Leadership and Vision
From the Principal
Through its near 30 year history, Chisholm Catholic College has grown and established itself to be a thriving, well-established school community. The College enjoys an excellent reputation and record in quality secondary education, forged on high standards and care and attention for each individual students to fulfill their God given potential.
Our teaching and engagement with students in their learning and developmental journey, continues to respond to the changes and emerging trends in curriculum and learning itself. In doing so we strive for a culture of excellence based upon high expectations. Pastorally, Chisholm has forged a strong reputation for providing support and care for those within our community. A core foundation in our mission and work is to instil and reinforce the importance of service to others and growing a capacity to make a positive contribution in life.
Chisholm is a large school, blessed with outstanding facilities, an extremely committed staff and wonderful breadth in opportunities available for learning and developing the talents of every individual. Its large scale however does not diminish the individual attention to learning and the commitment to provide the best learning environment possible for all students.
Our College is often commended on its efficient and smooth operation and the clear positive tone and pride exhibited by our students through what it means to be a part of Chisholm. We are proud of our strong academic culture, our continued dedication to the Arts and Sporting tradition and the way in which we reinforce the message and truth of the Gospel among all.
We look forward always to further improving the vital work of educating our secondary students for life, their vocational path and the challenges of their future world. CURRENT STRATEGIC PLAN
This is but a brief glimpse into the life of our school. There are many good things that cannot always be displayed but we are certainly proud of Chisholm and look forward to it continuing to be distinguished as not only a great school but an even better one into the future.
Mr John Bormolini
Character Learning Compassion
Character – the strength of qualities within an individual that determines how they think, feel and behave. This value upholds the distinct personality of each student who is encouraged to grow in Christ. Character calls us to live the expectations of the College.
Learning – the integration of human knowledge, belief, and behaviour that stems from the education process. This value promotes a cycle of enquiry, critical thinking, creation and reflection. The culture of Chisholm calls us to sustain a spirit of lifelong learning.
Compassion – the concern for others, and taking action to alleviate any adversity. This value is exemplified in the life of Christ and Caroline Chisholm. Compassion calls us to serve the needs of others to make our world a better place.
