The Common Good

 

“The common good is about how to live well together. It is the whole network of social conditions which enable human individuals and groups to flourish and live a full, genuinely human life. At the heart of the common good, solidarity acknowledges that all are responsible for all, not only as individuals but collectively at every level.”                                                                                                               (p.8 “Choosing the Common Good” – Bishops’ Conference 2010)

 

We recognise that working for the common good and giving attention to Catholic Social Teaching, is not an option but an obligation and part of our religious duties.  We are also mindful of the legacy of the Dominican Sisters, who established our school.  We can take inspiration from words of Mother Rose Niland OP, addressed to her novices: “Always More.”  “Always Better.”  “Always With Love.”

We aim to engender in our school community, a desire to live out our mission statement in its broadest sense,  “Let all our actions speak of God’s loving care”,  through our prayer life and service to our community, both local and in the wider world.
