"The Catholic religion, its doctrine, its moral framework, its consistency, and its beauty — is a gift from God Almighty. Unfortunately many Catholic schools in Australia today have taken that gift and monkeyed with it. These "progressive" schools deny the basic truths of the faith and are determined to replace them with a watered down "Church Light" (same Church, half the doctrines). In the wake of this ceaseless agitation for change, modern Catholic schools have largely produced uncertainty, instability, and a loss of faith in our young people. In short, the amount of Catholic students who leave grade twelve with a spiritual appetite for attending Mass has dramatically fallen while the number of students who are washing right out of the faith during high school is at an all time high.
To have found a school that recognises the challenges in society and equips students to be a 'light for the nations' - this was a blessing for my family.
I cannot recommend Saint Mary Mackillop Colleges in Wagga Wagga highly enough. It is truly, a Catholic school."
