St Clare’s High – a Catholic school serving the Manning Valley and its surrounds.

On behalf of the staff of St Clare’s, I extend to you a very warm welcome to our school community.

St Clare’s is a wonderful school with an excellent staff deeply committed to helping students develop their unique gifts and talents, strive for personal excellence and purpose, and recognise that learning is for life.  Learning experiences inside and outside the classroom challenge every student to develop key 21st century learning skills, including critical and creative thinking, problem solving and working collaboratively and independently. In this rapidly changing and exciting educational environment, student learning is supported by contemporary pedagogies, and information & communication technologies.

Our school motto “Omnia Pro Christo" (All For Christ) places the education we offer within the context of Christ’s mission and the Catholic traditions of St Clare and the Sisters of St Joseph, founded by Mary MacKillop and Julian Tenison Woods.

We recognise that learning is an emotional pursuit that has its greatest outcomes when parents, students and teachers form strong relationships based on mutual respect and trust.

St Clare’s excellent standing in the local community and its consistently high academic results are directly attributable to the positive relationships staff form with students and their families.

We place high expectations on our students. The wearing of school uniform with pride, care of our school environment, and the way we relate to others at school and in the wider community, are pivotal to the formation of well-rounded and spiritually centred young people.

We look forward to growing in faith and knowledge with you and your family over the coming years.
