Our Vision and Mission
Founded in 2006, the Year of the Eucharist, by Bishop Emeritus Peter Ingham, Corpus Christi Catholic High School quickly established a reputation as an innovative and contemporary Catholic secondary school in the Southern Illawarra Area. We aim to develop in every one of our learners a Eucharistic imagination with which to transform their world.
Our motto is “Abide in Christ”. It calls each member of the school community to remain close to Christ by being present, while displaying humility, courage and serving others.
At Corpus Christi, we journey together as Eucharistic people, hope-filled and open to the possibilities of Christ in our lives. We call on each member of our community to be counter-cultural in how they approach the world, seeking ways to transform it with their Eucharistic imagination.
We are bearing fruit as branches of Christ’s vine. The symbolism in the lower section of the crest calls the school community to action as Eucharistic people, reflecting the light of Christ.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at Corpus Christi are encouraged and supported to reach their full potential and to embrace their culture and identity. We strive to ensure that all members of our community understand, acknowledge and value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures and contribute to reconciliation for all Australians.
Ways we promote and foster cultural awareness in our students include:
- Peer Mentoring
- Motivational Speakers (ATSIC)
- Yarning Strong (Literacy Program)
- Social Justice Days
- The Indigenous Cultural Space
- Developing Community and School Relationships
- Building connections with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Role Models
- Celebration of NAIDOC Week
