Thomas More College
Wisdom to Seek
Courage to Thrive
Power to Change
"I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full'. (Jn 10:10)
Thomas More College aims to provide teaching and learning experiences which support young people in becoming thriving individuals. In recognising the power of learning to change ourselves and our world, we strive to develop young people with the wisdom to be seekers of knowledge and experience, who will go on to realise their aspirations and shape their own future. As a diverse community we thrive in an environment which values connection, inclusivity, and faith as we dialogue with our Catholic Tradition. St Thomas More's qualities of academic excellence, strength of character and service to others emanate throughout every facet of the College.
As active and engaged learners we are inquisitive, and persistent in seeking to know, improve and grow. Through critical reflection we strive to move beyond knowledge to seek wisdom.
We challenge boundaries and strive for excellence. We are courageous in spirit with the confidence to take risks in pursuing what is good which gives us joy. With integrity we explore our world and our place in it, and thrive as we embrace opportunities.
We are powerful. We reject limitations imposed by perception or circumstance. We develop the tools, capacity and knowledge to build the life we desire for ourselves, our families and our communities, both local and global. As drivers of change, we seek to be leaders for the world God desires.
