Casper and Airwatch

Our school and the Diocese of Parramatta are changing the system that we use to manage staff and student iPads (and other iOS devices). All iPads at the school will have to be unenrolled from Casper and enrolled into Airwatch, the newer system. This will be done in groups at school.

Welcome to St Columba's Catholic College, Springwood

Established in 1979 to serve the Blue Mountains, St Columba’s Catholic College provides an outstanding Catholic secondary education.

The college has a strong academic tradition as well as a rich co-curricular programme. It offers opportunities for the gifts and talents of all students to be developed. The learning programmes seek to develop the individual’s capacities and capabilities. Our results in the Higher School examinations are outstanding.

The co-curricular program of the college 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 and students from both schools are given the opportunity to meet one another in their own country every two years.

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.

The student management policy and practices at St Columba's Catholic College are underpinned by the principles of natural justice and procedural fairness.

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.

Mr Paul Ryan
