St Clare’s College Waverley is a Catholic community invigorated by the Franciscan charism and committed to maintaining our Franciscan tradition. Our college proudly proclaims our heritage in all aspects of our existence and calls us to follow in the footsteps of St Clare of Assisi and embrace the qualities of truth, humility, prudence, and charity to mirror Christ. Our college is committed to the evangelising mission of the Church and seeks to educate our young women in the spirit of St Clare.
Our girls regularly engage in the Catholic life of the school. We recognise that prayer, meditation, liturgy, reflection days, and overnight retreats are vital components of our existence.
Our college continues to educate our girls to respect human dignity and to exercise compassion for the oppressed and the environment. We seek to communicate with God by reaching out to those who are most vulnerable and this is reflected in the myriad of social justice projects, which are initiated by our students.
Youth Ministry at St Clare’s focuses on fostering the spiritual growth of each student to empower them to participate in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith. We offer opportunities for our young women to engage with many varied experiences of faith, service, and community. Here is a snapshot of the types of opportunities that are available to students:
