Melbourne School introduces Whitefriars Catholic College in Donvale, for all your education and learning for your childs future, We invite you to explore and learn more about the quality 21st Century education with Whitefriars Catholic College.
Whitefriars College is a Catholic Boys’ Secondary College conducted by the Carmelite Order. The College motto, "Almae in Fide Parentis" (In the Care of a Loving Mother) conveys something of the Order’s spirit and the way in which it endeavours to reach out to the students in its care.
Through our mission as a Catholic College, Whitefriars seeks to enable students to understand the principles and values of the Catholic faith and to experience these principles and values in a caring community to which they feel they belong. The staff at Whitefriars believes these ideals can only be realised in relation to students if they are also aimed for in the students’ homes.
The College staff relies heavily on the support of parents in the education of the boys entrusted to their care. We believe that a co-operative relationship between home and school provides the foundation for effectively pursuing the College's aims and ideals.
The major intake for students occurs at the Year 7 level, but students are welcome at other Year levels if vacancies exist.
Steeped in history, Whitefriars Catholic College is one of the popular school in the Donvale area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
