Our School Vision
With Faith we Succeed.
With Knowledge we Grow.
With Wisdom we Flourish.
In the spirit of St Ita, we walk in the footsteps of Christ and model the Gospel Values in both our words and actions.
We provide rich learning experiences based on individual needs; essential for the holistic growth of all students entrusted to us.
We promote the partnership of learning which is built on mutual respect, inclusiveness and trust.

As stated in the Standards, the requirements of the commitment above are not intended to affect the rights accorded to, or the compliance with any obligation imposed on, the School under a law of the State or of the Commonwealth.
