St Rita’s taught me to back myself. It taught me that you really can do whatever you set your mind to, provided you have determination, grit and persistence. I can’t remember ever
being told ‘no’ at St Rita’s, I just remember being taught that my success would be judged on my follow through.
It has certainly been one of the most important foundations of my life post school so far.

St Rita’s College, Clayfield, was established by the Presentation Sisters in 1926 and is committed to the mission of educating girls, in partnership with their families, to be women of action, not words – Virtute non Verbis.

At St Rita’s, we value the characteristics of compassion, hospitality and simplicity and these values guide the College’s unfaltering belief in the transforming power of education. St Rita’s provides a learning experience in which creativity and critical thinking exist together, where self-respect is more precious than self-importance and where our dedicated staff work in partnership with parents and guardians to enable our students to achieve to the best of their ability.

The academic, vocational and cocurricular disciplines embed Catholic Social Teaching into all subjects across all Year levels. Your daughter will be encouraged to be passionate about learning, to question rather than to assume and to take the lead rather than to follow.

First-class academic and vocational pathways are delivered by exceptional teachers whose commitment and nurturing motivates our students to use their individual gifts to their best potential.

The pastoral care of the students is provided through a vertical House structure to enable each girl to be recognised as an integral part of the College community.

Sporting and cultural strengths at St Rita’s are united with an unfailing commitment to social justice that guides the girls to hold a meaningful responsibility which empathises with the poor and marginalised.

St Rita and the Presentation founder, Nano Nagle, were women of determination, persistence and passion – characteristics which are promote and valued in our College today.

Principal

St Rita’s taught me to that whatever is on the outside of you can be taken away at any time, but whatever is on the inside is yours to keep. My teachers, and they were brilliant, showed me what it means to be a person of integrity – to never settle for less than you deserve, to demand the best  of yourself and others, and to always stay true to yourself.
