St Clare's Catholic High School

St Clare's Catholic High School

St Clare

In 1993, after collaboration between the Capuchin Fathers based at Plumpton, and the Catholic Education Office, meetings began concerning the construction of a new Catholic systemic high school at Hassall Grove. The new school was to be situated firmly in the Good Shepherd Parish.

The school’s layout has deliberately incorporated a Franciscan theme through aspects of the village of Assisi in Italy. The wide, white stone pillars encompassing the extensive colonnades, the Town Square and the long walkway or ‘Street,’ all have this intended Italian aspect. This Franciscan influence was also paired with a strong Aboriginal connection with respect to the significance of the site in the local Aboriginal history. The first and only land grants given to Aboriginal people by Governor Macquarie were to Colebee and Nurragingy, nearby. And the Native Institute and the original Blacktown are close by the Bells Creek, a sacred burial site.

The first Year 7 students commenced classes in 1994, and the school experienced its first graduating class of Year 10 in 1997.

In 1997, it was decided to restructure the Catholic schools in the Greater Mt Druitt area and form Christ Catholic College, with St Agnes at Rooty Hill, Loyola at Mt Druitt, and St Clare’s at Hassall Grove. This came about in 1999, but after five years a further restructure was made and now the three schools together, form the Christ Catholic Community of Schools.

Since 2005, renewed vision and a clearly defined three-year strategic management plan has set the direction and challenge for St Clare's, as it strives to create a culture of academic excellence in a caring, safe and Christian environment.
