A welcome message from CathWest Principal, Catherine Larkin.
Welcome to CathWest Innovation College where education meets the needs of our students now, and into the future.
Since our launch in 2020, we are proud to have been able to offer exciting new options for students in Years 10, 11 and 12. The success we have seen our students achieve in this short time has been inspiring and we are looking to the future with enthusiasm and hope. Our state-of-the-art facilities have been well utilised and are delivering incredible student learning experiences.
Our students have responded in an overwhelmingly positive way to the flexible pathways to education and training we offer. We believe that by being centred on the individual needs and interests of students, and combining study and training, our students thrive. Choosing CathWest puts students in a position to attain their HSC and get a head-start on their chosen career.
Our campuses are in two convenient Western Sydney locations and provide a wider range of educational options, in order to ensure more choices for a bright future. At CathWest we empower our students to take control of their learning journey. Our students achieve because we teach them to believe in themselves the way we believe in them.
Our approach to education takes into account the demands of the jobs of tomorrow and aims to better equip students to meet these. Our carefully designed courses enable students to develop essential skills in time management, planning, and prioritising. In addition, students develop practical, industry-specific skills that make them highly employable on graduation. We are proud to play a part in shaping future citizens of the world who are highly skilled, competent and responsible. We have established a welcoming and supportive Catholic learning community.
Together our community of learners act with integrity and strive for the ‘greater good’.
We help our students seek and find God in all things. Our faith-based environment allows us to deliver a holistic education that encourages our students to be generous and compassionate, and to reflect on their actions and learn from them. Students of CathWest are encouraged to participate actively and fully in the life of their communities, the Church and the wider world.
I am excited to share with you everything CathWest has to offer and encourage you to visit us for a tour or visit our website for a virtual tour. I am proud to be part of a college making such a difference for young people.
