Catholic Special Character Report

The National Administration Guidelines (NAG 2) requires all schools to develop a Strategic Plan, maintain a programme of self-review and report to the community. In Catholic Schools this process must include provision for the maintenance and development of Catholic Special Character. The review and development cycle includes annual internal self-review of a key dimension of Catholic Special Character as well as an external review every four years.

The latest report concludes:

“Children believe that their school is special because it is named after St. Francis and his spirit is
living in the hearts of the children, the staff and the parents. There is congruence between what is
aspired to in the school’s Mission and Goals and the education that is developing in the children a
love of their Catholic faith while challenging them to be socially responsible, happy and confident
people with a responsibility for Creation as holy and blessed, as inspired by St. Francis of Assisi.”
