Our philosophy draws on the spirit and vision of Edmund Rice, the Founder of the Congregation of Christian Brothers. Our learning community has a clear commitment to social justice and stands in solidarity with disenfranchised young people of all social, cultural, and religious backgrounds. The school is one of 22 Flexible Learning Centres across Australia.

Each school strives to embody the Edmund Rice Education Australia Flexi Schools Network principles of RESPECT, PARTICIPATION, SAFE & LEGAL, and HONESTY.
