The College patron, Dom Rosendo Salvado was an inspirational missionary, educator, bishop and pioneer colonist who founded the community of New Norcia. The College’s motto “Peace, Justice, Compassion” directly reflects Salvado’s life work and is our vision for the College.
The olive branches of the emblem represent a growing community that will start modestly, but which will continue to expand and flourish from its initial opening and which is sustained by a common Catholic faith.
To commemorate the Bicentenary year of Rosendo Salvado’s birth in 2014, a commemorative booklet was compiled to share his life story. Please Click Here to have a read of the souvenir booklet.
