Servite College has long been an icon of education in the Tuart Hill, Osborne Park area. It was opened in February 1958, originally an all-boys regional school named after the great Servite Saint, Philip Benizi. Since 1973 it has grown as a co-educational institution.
The Servite Friars have a strong commitment to the College. We have always felt that within the College we have a unique opportunity to promote Christian and Catholic values, with the specific orientation that comes from our almost 800 year old traditions.
What is it that makes Servite College different from other schools? First and foremost we believe it is its special Servite spirit towards life and faith. This spirit is traceable right back to the Seven Holy Founders, the small group of men who began the Servite Order in Florence in the 13th century. They came together to share everything and to serve God and others. Mary the Mother of Jesus was their refuge and strength.
So, to this day, Servite College believes that it is a community of faith, where we work and study not as so many individuals, but by supporting each other. Servite College encourages both their staff and students to a pervading attitude of service, adopting the words of Jesus: "I have come not to be served but to serve." Finally, we draw abiding inspiration from Mary, Mother and Servant of the Lord. With these ideals, Servite College continually moves forward, ever committing its work to God."
St Kieran Catholic Primary School was established in 1920 by the Sisters of Mercy to support the Catholic families in the Parish to pass on the faith and to provide a quality Catholic Education.
In 2005 the St Kieran Catholic School Board undertook a consultative process to establish the hopes, dreams and expectations for the school. The students, parents, staff, leadership team and the Board all contributed to the development of a Strategic Plan.
We are committed to being at the forefront of educational leadership and to continue to build a vibrant and engaging environment for our learning community.
The Plan provides a rich source of material to guide the development of policies and programs for St Kieran. It ensures the school remains faithful to its motto, mission, vision and values as we revitalise the traditions and charism of the Sisters of Mercy.
Today, as in the beginning, we welcome each community member into a Catholic, accepting, Christian family, where each persons individuality, uniqueness and cultural background is recognised, respected and valued.
