Social Justice at Catholic Ladies' College stems from the belief that individuals and groups are obliged to apply Gospel values to the systems, structures and institutions of society, including the school community.

At the heart of the Christian's actions for justice lies the response in love and gratitude to the God who loves me and wishes for me to love others.

THIS PHILOSOPHY TRANSLATES INTO THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS:

  • Treating all people with respect and dignity
  • Raising awareness of current social injustices
  • Fundraising for charity organisations and organising special collections such as food
  • Public witness and activism: for example, Amnesty International letters
  • Leadership training with justice organisations






The Archdiocese is committed to the safety, wellbeing and dignity of all children and vulnerable adults.
