The School Crest
The School Crest contains the Celtic cross, a symbol of Ireland, the homeland of St Munchin and the Sisters of Mercy. The symbol of the Southern Cross recognises that we are educating children within Australia.
The School Prayer
The school’s Motto “Sequere Veritatem”...“Follow Truth”, encourages each child to follow the teachings of Christ to guide them through life’s journey.
St Munchin’s seeks to help students develop their special gifts from God in order to become people of faith and be active contributors to build a better world. Our school recognises that its students have many natural gifts and qualities. It recognises the many special gifts given to them by God through the Sacraments, especially Baptism, Penance, Eucharist and Conﬁrmation.
Our school aims to help students develop in every way possible – spiritually, volitionally, intellectually, physically, and emotionally. In practice, we can say that the school seeks to develop the whole person.
St Munchin’s Catholic School aspires to reﬂect the life and love of Christ for His people.
In the tradition of Eucharistic sharing, St Munchin’s Catholic School community aims to reﬂect the life and love of Christ for His people. The school community works together to provide pastoral care for each person and to nurture the development of the whole child.
Catholic schools in Australia continue to respond to, and to serve, the needs of the parents who seek a Catholic education for their children. In the building up of Christ’s Kingdom and Australian society, Catholic schools play a deliberate and vital role. As explicitly acknowledged in The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millennium (1997), “… now, as in the past, the Catholic school must be able to speak for itself effectively and convincingly. It is not merely a question of adaptation, but of missionary thrust, the fundamental duty to evangelise, to go toward men and women wherever they are, so that they may receive the gift of salvation” (# 3). This document is designed to show how the Australian Catholic school is able to “speak for itself effectively and convincingly”, and to highlight the fact that “the work of the school is irreplaceable and the investment of human and material resources in the school becomes a prophetic choice” (# 21).
