From the Principal

Welcome!
At Parramatta Marist High School, we are committed to providing the very best Catholic education to equip our students to live and work confidently, effectively and wisely in a complex and ever changing world. In fulfilling this commitment, we constantly strive to be a school that values excellence and provides avenues for students from a wide range of abilities and interests so that all students have the opportunity to experience success in their life at school. We encourage in each student a desire to achieve to his full potential in all areas of school life - spiritual, academic, creative, physical and emotional.

At Parramatta Marist High School, we provide opportunities in faith, learning and wellbeing in a caring environment. Our broad range of curriculum options means that students can follow the traditional academic pathway as well as a vocational education possibility. Valuing our guiding motto – Fortio Ito – Go forth with strength, our students will be prepared for that changing world.

Through our founding Marist charism, our goal is to be a school that encourages mutual respect, partnership, healthy relationships and appreciation of all members of the community - staff, students, parents and parish.

Our education is characterized by faith and the Catholic tradition engendering pride in offering excellence in the academic arena and in the pastoral care of all our students. Our belief is that our students learn best when they feel that they belong and that they matter. This informs our mission and vision.

At Parramatta Marist High School, academic results are only one measure of achievement. As a Catholic educational centre of learning, our goal is for each student to achieve beyond their potential. In offering a broad and balanced education, our students gain the confidence and the skills to develop their talents and strengths as emotionally intelligent leaders – young men who are able to think globally and act locally.

The incredible diversity of talent demonstrated in the achievements of our students is testament to the commitment they have to their studies, the dedication of their teachers and the support of their families.

I commend to you the spirit of our founder, St Marcellin Champagnat, as we continue our journey to Jesus through Mary.
