Catholic Schools

After the establishment of Mary Mackillop parish in Oran Park in mid 2015, the number of schools in the parish reduced from six to four - St Paul's primary (1884), Mater Dei special needs (1957), St Clare's primary (1994), Magdalene secondary (1999), remained in Camden parish. St Benedict's secondary (2011) and St Justin's primary (2012), were now positioned within Australia's newest parish.

The Church requires that our Catholic schools are places of academic quality, religious education and pastoral care. Extra curricula activities in sport and the arts are enthusiastically promoted. Clergy, senior diocesan personnel, principals, teachers and parents remain deeply committed to ensuring that the schools of our parish will comfortably meet these requirements - and in a way that is easily recognisable to the wider church and to civil communities.
