From the Principal

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Cardijn College Galilee.

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision that will impact them well into the future and we welcome you to explore what Galilee has to offer our students and their families.

My involvement with Cardijn College spans three decades, beginning as a pioneer teacher of Physical Education and Mathematics when Cardijn College opened in 1984 at Noarlunga Downs to my appointment as Principal in 2005. I have a deep commitment to deliver the very best Catholic education provision to young people and families in the Southern Vales.

We have created an environment where learning is stimulating and fun, where opportunities to explore, try and participate are endless and where ultimately, our students grow in faith, knowledge and in character.

Parents choose Cardijn not only for our extensive academic and vocational programs, but also for our pastoral care and respect for the culture and heritage of each individual.

Quite simply, I believe Cardijn College is the best choice of school for your child. I invite you to visit us so that you can experience first-hand, the many outstanding qualities that make Galilee such a unique and special place for your child to begin or continue their educational journey.

I look forward to meeting you and your family soon.

Dr Paul Rijken
