Teaching and learning at Saint Euphemia College transcends simple academic instruction. It is about nurturing the whole person – academically, spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically. By encouraging our students to be lifelong learners, we seek to help each student achieve their unique potential, to develop their academic skills, their ability to manage themselves and their relationships with others, to value and contribute to others both within and beyond the school community and to recognise the value of each person.
