Welcome to Island Catholic Schools
The Catholic Independent Schools of the Diocese of Victoria are committed to Catholic education founded on Gospel-centred values and the teachings & tradition of the Catholic Church.
We will continue to be models of love and hope as we build a new future for our Diocesan community and the wider global community.
Bishop Gary Gordon's Homily from the Mass for the Island Catholic Schools Professional Development Day
"An authentic Catholic school ... is rooted in the person of Jesus Christ ... and this is why authenticity for a Catholic School is in the parish, in the worshipping assembly of his body the Church, gathered around a pastor, around the table of the Word, and the Eucharist, where we become what we receive: holy communion. The Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life."
~ Bishop Gary Gordon
