Catholic education in the
Good Samaritan Benedictine tradition
Enriched and inspired by
the Parable of the Good Samaritan,
the Rule of Benedict and
the Sisters of the Good Samaritan,
the mission of Good Samaritan Education is to sustain and nurture
communities of learning in the Catholic tradition.
Good Samaritan Education (GSE) is responsible for ten incorporated schools in Australia.
Catholic education in the Good Samaritan Benedictine tradition is committed to developing students who will engage with today’s world as grounded, hope-filled young people who are equipped to lead wisely, to listen deeply and to treat their neighbour and their environment with justice, love and the compassion of Christ.
Each GSE school is marked by its own distinctive spirit and character, and its strong connection to the local Church. At the same time, each school identifies with and is enlivened by its membership of Good Samaritan Education. Our school communities work together to ensure an educational culture where all are safe, valued and welcomed.
Impelled by the
Parable of the Good Samaritan
To be neighbour. Recognising the inherent dignity of all creation, the Parable invites us to listen deeply to each voice and be a voice for those who are voiceless.
Guided by the
Rule of St Benedict
The Rule of St Benedict is a wisdom text from the 6th century which provides inspiration and guidance. It draws on universal and fundamental insights into human life and community.
Inspired by the
Sisters of the Good Samaritan
Established as Australia’s first religious congregation, the Sisters of the Good Samaritan share a commitment to women and the education of young people at the heart of their mission.
All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ,
who said: “I was a stranger and you welcomed me” (Mt 25″35).
Proper honour must be shown to all
