Catholic College Sale Vision from a member of the Catholic College Sale Marist-Sion family:
“I am strong of mind, gentle of heart and loved by God. Inspired by the life and message of Jesus and the example of Mary, I live with courage, simplicity and hope. I belong to a faith and learning community where I am known, cared for and valued. This enables me to welcome and accept the differences in others, build relationships and enjoy life. I strive to be genuine and honest and embrace the challenge of going beyond the ordinary. I work hard to fully develop my unique talents. I use these gifts in the service of the marginalised and all others in the community."
