Spirituality is at the heart of our College and is informed by the Benedictine tradition that  sustains and nourishes the human spirit.

Benedictine values, the story of the Good Samaritan and the life of Christ are the foundation stones of College life.  They are not abstract notions and students are encouraged, through their faith, to search for meaning and to acquire a sound, moral basis for living their lives.


Our motto is PAX – or Peace, a universal longing, which we promote by developing young women who, through the way they live their lives, help create peaceful, generous and tolerant communities.
