Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to 㽶Ƶapp˰ – a vibrant and alive school community in the heart of Chatswood.

㽶Ƶapp˰ is a non-selective Catholic Boys’ school for students from Years 5 to 12 operating under the auspices of Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA). The College is in its 86th year of providing quality Catholic education on Sydney’s North Shore. Central to the College’s educational experience is that there are many opportunities for partnership between students, staff and parents.

St Pius X is committed to the vision of Blessed Edmund Rice (Founder of the Christian Brothers) who emphasised the need to help the marginalised in society. We practice our faith and strive to live it out daily in the way we treat each other and the way we learn. Social justice programs and service to the community are key elements of our life.

The College has a strong emphasis on academic achievement and constant improvement. Our pastoral care for each student is vital to ensuring the wellbeing that is essential for good learning. The extensive co-curricular program provides boys with opportunities for achievement in sport, music and an extensive range of cultural activities.

The range of academic, spiritual and cocurricular activities makes 㽶Ƶapp˰ a dynamic, contemporary learning community with excellent teachers and high quality resources. Students are provided with learning opportunities, which are both challenging, but also supported  in a manner that suits 21st century learners.

Our approach to life and education is embodied in the College motto “Fide et Labore” which means “Through Faith and Hard Work”.

We live this motto in our daily life.

I invite you to view our web site, which illustrates the dynamic and diverse learning environment available to our students, as well as the spirit and support that characterises the 㽶Ƶapp˰ family.

Welcome to 㽶Ƶapp˰
