As a Catholic College in the Edmund Rice tradition, Rostrevor College draws on the guiding principles and values of this tradition to instil qualities on our boys that will help them to make a difference, not only to their own lives, but to those around them. We help boys to make sense of their place in the world, encouraging them to give expression to their beliefs and put their faith in action.
The foundation of the entire school curriculum is the Catholic quest to integrate faith and reason. This Catholic perspective permeates each subject and the entire educational experience at Rostrevor. The College provides a Christian environment where the values of the Gospel are proclaimed and encouraged. Boys are involved in daily prayer, weekly Chapel Assemblies and annual Retreats where they have the opportunity to deepen their relationship with God.
Religious Education at Rostrevor is concerned with helping boys make sense of their life and the world in which they live. Students are encouraged to give expression to their beliefs and faith in actions. They are encouraged to reach out to the community and the world, to strive for justice and to make a difference to the lives of others.
