Kildare Catholic College is part of the Diocese of Wagga Wagga system of Catholic schools. Five secondary Colleges and twenty seven primary schools operate as a team, in partnership with the Catholic Schools Office, with a clearly defined purpose and Mission

 Vision-&-Mission CSO Vision and Mission

The Catholic schools in the Diocese of Wagga Wagga exist to serve the evangelizing mission of the Church whilst ensuring that students are supported to reach their full potential through quality learning and teaching. The pastoral letter of the Bishops of NSW and ACT, Catholic Schools at a Crossroads, which is reflected in the Bishop’s Mandate, inspires our Catholic school leaders and teachers to support parents in the faith development of their children through strong positive and supportive relationships.

The Strategic Improvement Plan for Catholic Schools’ sets out strategic improvement priorities for the Catholic Schools Office (Diocese of Wagga Wagga) system of Catholic schools for the period 2012 to 2016. The Plan is underpinned by the Vision and Mission statements and the Bishop’s Mandate released by Bishop Gerard Hanna in 2011. This plan has been aligned with the self-review and improvement framework entitled How Effective is Our Catholic School? Each year all Diocesan schools construct an Annual Improvement Plan, aligned with this Diocesan Plan. The Kildare Annual Plan Graphic identifies key improvement priorities in the 2014 Annual Improvement Plan.

Kildare Catholic College also operates in the wider Australian and international education communities. The big ideas on what works in improving learning outcomes for students are now discussed and researched on a global basis. Two researchers that are highly significant for staff professional learning in the area of leadership for school improvement are Michael Fullan and Helen Timperley. The ACER document, National School Improvement Tool, is an excellent foundation document for reflecting on school performance and improvement agendas.
