Strategic Plan 2016 – 2021
Building On Tradition
THE SPIRITAN WAY
- Openness to the Spirit
- Commitment to Service
- Global Vision
- Sense of Community
- Personal Development
- Concern for the Poor
- High Educational Standards
A Blackrock education is about growth, an awareness of self and an understanding of relationships. Each member of the school community is encouraged to be the best that he/she can be, to be inspired by our tradition for excellence and to make his/her own contribution across the spiritual, academic, cultural, pastoral and sporting domains.
Education is about much more than the transfer of knowledge.
Our boys are encouraged to be aware and curious, to be humble and honest, to think morally and open mindedly, to care about one another and be willing to stand up and be counted.
Therein lies a vision of excellence which encourages the boys to lead their lives by gospel values and to make a difference. Our prayer for them is that they grow in confidence, in personality and in character, that they become fulfilled and strive to be better than their former selves. Finally, that they be mindful that Excellence is not an act but a habit and that we are what we repeatedly do.
Long may the habits of Blackrock produce young men of compassion, drive, wisdom and faith.
