As a Catholic community we recognise the presence of God who challenges us to embrace Gospel values. We continually look for opportunities to express our Faith through practical action with regard to Social Justice. Students are expected to be involved in and participate fully in a selection of co-curricular activities. These range from sporting teams and associated training to our Social Justice Group, debating and chess clubs, Student Leadership Group, choir and an environment group.
At Catholic Regional College Sydenham, we strive to provide an education which is dynamic, innovative and flexible and one that not only promotes excellence but also engages students in their learning. Our staff are very experienced in the delivery of a senior curriculum, the vast majority are in fact VCE assessors. Our facilities provide an excellent learning environment with a strong emphasis on technology. We believe that our student deserve the very best facilities, equipment and staff so that they can achieve their full potential.
Our goal is to work in partnership with parents to develop young men and women who are loving, open to growth, committed to their faith and to social justice, and who are religiously and intellectually competent. When our graduates demonstrate these characteristics, practicing them in their daily lives by contributing to our Nation, the school community can be proud in the knowledge that it has served them well.
