At St Martin’s we believe that our school community develops in a manner consistent with the spirit of Saint Dominic and the principles that promote positive relationships in classrooms, school, and the broader community, as stated through our Vision and Mission – St Martin’s is an inclusive Catholic community unified by the hopes and dreams that we value for our children.
St Martin’s Catholic Primary School aims to foster an environment based on the values and understandings of our Dominican heritage – Love Of Learning, Prayer And Contemplation, Justice and Peace with Inclusion of Others, Being an Individual, Care for All Creation, and Seeking Truth.
As a Catholic secondary school in the Dominican Tradition we are committed to the education of young women. The Dominican values of faith, study, truth and community are as essential to the contemporary world as they were in previous times. San Sisto is a Catholic Systemic Secondary College for young women which seeks to foster spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, cultural and faith development.
Our aim is to provide a learning environment that supports the individual student to meet the challenges of the future. With an emphasis on academic achievement, development of practical skills, promotion of community harmony and a wide co-curricular program, the College seeks to challenge each student in individual ways while fostering a strong feeling of community.
The College environment is a professional, caring one in which the community works together for the common good. The College strives to challenge and enrich the lives of students in order that they may reach their full potential, enabling them to respond effectively to the demands and changes in their lives.
At San Sisto, students are encouraged to accept responsibility and develop independence and self discipline. Confidence and self worth are nurtured through mutual respect and care for one another.
