Established in 1820, Parramatta Marist High School is the oldest Catholic school in Australia providing continuous Catholic education for almost 200 years. Since 1875 the school has been under the tutelage of the Marist Brothers and over the last 143 years generations of students have been shaped by the Marist charism - a set of core values that flows from a basic trust in God and a desire to follow Christ in the way of Mary. Parramatta Marist offers a comprehensive education for young men with an emphasis on holistic curricula that challenges students spiritually, academically, physically and emotionally. Through Faith we provide mission; through Learning we provide achievement and; through Wellbeing we provide growth. Our school was ranked 64th in NSW in the 2018 Higher School Certificate - the highest ranking in the Parramatta Diocese and the highest ranked comprehensive catholic systemic school in the state. This result demonstrates the hard work and dedication of both teachers and students in the pursuit of academic excellence. Following the example of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, founder of the Marist Brothers, we actively promote the need for students to be accountable for their actions and to engage in a restorative process to rectify a situation. We strive to be fair, firm and friendly when dealing with each and every student, and also provide a range of programs to support students with special needs. These include in-class support and individual education plans to encourage and advocate effective teaching and learning for students. Parramatta Marist High School is a leader in the integration of technology and new pedagogical approaches that endeavour to prepare students for the future. The introduction of Project-Based Learning in Years 7 to 10, Problem-Based Learning in Year 11 and the flipped-classroom in Year 12 allows students to work in teams to develop their organisational and interpersonal skills, as well as encouraging accountability and a healthy work ethic within these exciting and innovative programs. Teachers are also afforded an opportunity to facilitate a rich learning environment and to implement skills acquired following professional development programs in the USA and Singapore that have been regularly attended by the majority of our staff members over the last 12 years. Furthermore, we believe that technology needs to be incorporated into all facets of the learning process in order to complement the quality teaching present at the school. Consequently, in an era of dynamic and uncertain change, Parramatta Marist students are well placed to deal with the vagaries of the 21st century in both school and their post-school lives.
