Bishop Kenney blesses new School building and launches Motto and Mission Statement


St Aloysius' School had an exciting day on Tuesday when Bishop William Kenney celebrated our feast day Mass at the Oratory and then officially opened the new courtyard building.

The School Council gave a splendid presentation about the new motto and Mission Statement (see the text of these below) and the music group played beautifully to entertain the guests at lunch.


Our Motto:

"Be ambitious for the higher gifts."

1 Cor. 12:31


Our Mission Statement:

Welcome to our school.

At St. Aloysius' we learn to grow in holiness, to become who we were made to be.

Here we seek to know God, finding Him in all that we learn, and understanding that all that is good, beautiful and true offers us a glimpse of God.

Here we seek to love God, with our hearts, our minds and our souls, meeting Him in prayer and recognising Him in one another.

Here we seek to serve God, making the best use of our gifts to serve those around us. Here, recognising God's delight in us, and by His grace, we become more fully alive.


"A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints."

Pope Benedict XVI


The School has a new website which you can visit here.
