Excursions and camps are conducted as an integral part of the educational programme that the College offers and are to reflect both the Catholic and Carmelite Principles upon which the school stands.
Catholic schools play a vital part in the life of the Church in Western Australia by contributing to the holistic development of our young through education.

‘Religious Education is the first Learning Area in the Catholic school curriculum. This is so because, through a classroom activity, Religious Education is a form of the ministry of the Word. Unlike the other Learning Areas, it is an activity of Evangelisation in its own right.’ (Mandate Letter, 43)
Catholic schools foster everything good and unifying in society from the perspective of the Gospel. They promote the development of a society which reflects the love and goodness of God, where peace and reconciliation grow along with justice, compassion, mercy and a special commitment to the poor.
