At St Clare’s we acknowledge and pay our respects to the traditional custodians, past and present, of this land of the Biripi people who long before us lived, loved and raised their children. We also acknowledge all the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families in our community and acknowledge their deep physical and spiritual connections to their land. We come together today to learn, to share and to journey together.
St Clare’s Catholic High School, Taree, is a 7-12 co-educational learning community for which the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the source of inspiration.
Originally founded by the Sisters of St Joseph in 1926, St Clare’s takes “Omnia pro Christo” (All For Christ) and “Never see a need without doing something about it” (St Mary of the Cross MacKillop) as guiding principles. As a community we are committed to education as part of a life-long process for staff and students.
“I think this is truly the most wonderful experience we can have: to belong to a people walking, journeying through history together with our Lord, who walks among us! We are not alone; we do not walk alone. We are part of the one flock of Christ that walks together.”
- Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy
