Welcome to Island Catholic Schools
The Catholic Independent Schools of the Diocese of Victoria are committed to Catholic education founded on Gospel-centred values and the teachings & tradition of the Catholic Church.
We will continue to be models of love and hope as we build a new future for our Diocesan community and the wider global community.
2016 Journey of Hearts & Hands: Rock the Mission!
"The Lord is my rock . . . in whom I take refuge."
~ Psalm 18:2
Every year our Diocesan Appeal, Journey of Hearts & Hands, raises $325,000 for capital improvements for our Island Catholic Schools.
For example, these funds were used for the $1.4 million seismic upgrade provided by the Diocese to St. Patrick’s school this past summer, and the $6 million seismic upgrade and expansion of St. Joseph’s Elementary School in Victoria in 2014.
Our Annual Appeal allows us to assist vital education projects—Let's Rock the Mission!
