College Values - Christian Brothers College

College Values

We reflect the wisdom and lessons of our College’s rich tradition and history, offering a respectful welcome to all.

We rise above the ordinary by encouraging and celebrating educational endeavour, excellence, and life-long learning. We nurture spirituality through individual and collective expressions of faith in our contemporary society. We encourage an authentic response to the poor and marginalised thereby contributing to the creation of a just world.

As a learning community, Christian Brothers College inspires excellence. We aim to be energetic and compassionate contributors to the world. Contemporary and dynamic educational programs provide the basis for life-long learning in a community where life, faith and family are celebrated.

EREA Touchstones

The values held by the Christian Brothers College Adelaide community are based on the Gospel values and are aligned with EREA Touchstones.

Liberating Education

We open hearts and minds, through quality teaching and learning experiences, so that through critical reflection and engagement each person is hope-filled and free to build a better world for all.

Gospel Spirituality

We invite all people into the story of Jesus and strive to make his message of compassion, justice and peace a living reality within our community.

Inclusive Community

Our community is accepting and welcoming, fostering right relationships and committed to the common good.

Justice and Solidarity

We are committed to justice and peace for all, grounded in a spirituality of action and reflection that calls us to stand in solidarity with those who are marginalised and the Earth itself.
