Welcome to St Columba's, Springwood
Established in 1979 to serve the Blue Mountains, St Columba’s High School provides high quality Catholic secondary education.
The school has a strong academic tradition as well as a rich co-curricular programme. It offers opportunities for all gifts and talents to be developed. The learning programmes seek to develop the individual’s capacities and capabilities. Our results in the School Certificate and Higher School examinations are outstanding.
The co-curricular program includes School Band and Choir, dramatic performances, sport, public speaking, debating and the Duke of Edinburgh scheme.
We have a strong social justice focus where students are encouraged to work for those less fortunate in the community.
St Columba’s enjoys a Sister School relationship with Hokusetsu Senior High in Sanda, Japan.
St Columba’s values the parent- school partnership and the Parent Community Support Group (PCSG) further supports this. St Columba’s provides excellent pastoral care for its students. The programme is holistic and focuses on knowing the students well.
The heart of St Columba’s is expressed in its motto: To act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with our God.
All members of the community are called to be peacemakers. We hope to produce graduates who take a hopeful, critical and constructive role in the service of Jesus Christ within our community. I am enormously proud of all members of our community: students, parents and staff.St Columba’s High School is a friendly, caring school.
