Vision, mission and motto


Living in peace, guided by truth, growing in wisdom.


We the members of the St Finbarr’s School community, aim to create a safe, inclusive and supportive learning environment in which we live Gospel values daily. Through excellence in teaching and learning and exposure to a wide range of educational and cultural experiences, we aim to instil in our students a love and enthusiasm for learning. We aim to support each child’s learning pathway and encourage self-knowledge and self-discipline to develop a positive attitude and a resilience of mind and heart. 


Peace, truth, wisdom.

The motto encapsulates the values of the Christian life. 

School crest

St Finbarr’s School badge is designed for schools in the Mary MacKillop tradition.

The symbol for Jesus reminds us of our Christian heritage and the stars of the Southern Cross, our Australian heritage.
