Our Creator made each one of us-and as educators in a Catholic school we work with our Creator to help young people become the fully formed adults they were created to be. Each one of us is a gift from God-and we honour that.
Garin College works hard to be a 21st century standard-setter in education, and in the formation of young people as responsible and principled citizens whose lives are based on the teachings of Jesus.
Catholic schools are different.
Because we know God created each one of us, we respect each person. We educate the whole person God created: academic, physical, spiritual, emotional, moral and creative. We find ways to develop leadership, confidence, and community spirit. We do this through our work in the classroom and the relationships students develop with their teachers – but also through sport, cultural activities, Christian action, leadership, camps, prayer, liturgies and Journey programme.
We want our children to have the very best chance of a happy life. We want them to have the qualifications they need, the healthy bodies they need, and the ability to form faithful, loving relationships.
