Our Catholic Identity

As a school, we express our faith in many ways. 

An education with Catholic College Wodonga is a living expression of the dynamic and evolving tradition of the Church – and our sense of community is a tangible example of our Catholic Identity.

 

Formal compulsory RE classes are offered in Years 7 to 11, with additional related subjects in Years 10 to 12, Youth Ministry or VCE Religion and Society.

 

School life includes whole school liturgies, small community liturgies and prayer, whole school themes, school retreats and camps, commitment to social justice (expressed in events that raise awareness of important social issues), a commitment to creating connections with our Catholic Parish and dynamic youth programs such as Youth Ministry and The RITE Journey.

These programs enable your child to put their faith into action. Students are also involved in Carevan and assist with the maintenance of Clyde Cameron Reserve in Willow Park, Wodonga. These fulfil two of the basic teachings of Jesus Christ; by feeding the hungry and practising stewardship of the environment.

 

Youth Ministry students undertake community service within the school and further afield. They work with the three Catholic Education Wodonga (CEW) primary schools in faith formation, through planning and leading retreats.
