As a Catholic School in the Edmund Rice Tradition, Aquinas College values the importance of prayer and reflection in the everyday lives of our students.

Middle School students are encouraged to explore and develop their spirituality in Religious Education, retreat programs and service to the community. This holistic approach to spiritual development is integral to an Aquinas College education, in the Edmund Rice Tradition.

As Middle School students transition from childhood to adolescence it is important they are given guidance and support during the sometimes difficult road to becoming a young man.

The Middle School retreat program aims to promote an image of manhood reflective of Gospel values and the models of Jesus and Blessed Edmund. Service Learning opportunities which connect students with community members in need also help students to develop core spiritual and service values which underpin an Aquinas education.

The combination of Religious Education experiences, Veritas, retreat programs and Middle School Leadership initiatives aims to help our students begin a lifelong journey of learning, leadership and service.
