The Mission of Oakhill College is founded in the Mission of the Institute of the De La Salle Brothers and is most clearly realised in the five core Lasallian Principles which guide every aspect of education at the College.
Mission of the Institute of the De La Salle Brothers
“The purpose of the Institute is to provide a human and Christian education to the young, especially the poor” (Rule of the Brothers)
Faith in the Presence of God
Oakhill College nurtures belief in the living presence of God in our world, viewing it with the ‘eyes of faith’.
Oakhill College provides an education that focuses on excellence, and where students attain their potential and are prepared for life. This education advances students’ abilities to use their talents to critically examine the world in light of the message of the Gospels and to take greater responsibility for their own education.
Respect for all Persons
Oakhill College engages in a concerted effort to respect the inherent dignity, worth and gifts of each person.
Oakhill College is a united community where diversity is respected, where no one is left out, and where everyone is accepted so each person can grow.
Concern for the Poor and Social Justice
Oakhill College calls its members to an awareness of the poor and victims of injustice in our own community and elsewhere and responds to their needs through programs of community service, advocacy, and justice education.
