Lumen Christi College seeks to provide opportunities that allow each student to become the best person he or she can possibly be. A pastorally caring and supportive environment based on the teachings of Christ helps to create a positive environment where all can learn and grow.
Enriched by the heritage of Catholic Education Lumen Christi College is dedicated to preparing students for the challenges demanded in daily life. Particular focus is given to the ever increasing complexity of technology and communication systems.
Our Vision is that all members of our College Community live up to the College motto by being ‘beacons of the Good News. People who help make God known and present in our world today’.
The Lumen Christi College journey starts with our mission. It is enduring and declares our core purpose as a College. It serves as the standard against which we consider our actions and our decisions.
Therefore, with a commitment to providing quality experiences, rich learning opportunities and drawing inspiration from our College name – Lumen Christi – the Light of Christ, our mission is to:
Form resilient young men and women with a passion to learn and to be a light for others.
Support of these values commits College Staff to:
- nurturing faith within the Catholic Christian tradition
- giving witness to Catholic beliefs and Gospel values
- offering personal and professional service
- providing a creative, challenging and fulfilling learning environment
- promoting life-long learning through a curriculum which is relevant, dynamic and encourages independent thinking
- developing leadership through involvement in decision making, community initiatives and active citizenship
- promoting self-discipline, integrity and the pursuit of excellence
- providing equality of opportunity.
The charism of the College is given life through the lived expression of the four Pillars of faith. These are the foundation stones which inspire and breathe life into the core values. Individually and collectively the Pillars promote the need for all aspects of College life, including the Curriculum, to be shaped by a religious view of the world.
