I warmly welcome you to Holy Spirit College, Bellambi. The College is located in the Illawarra region of New South Wales and offers a Catholic, comprehensive, coeducational learning community for Years 7 to 12. The College offers all students the opportunity to realise their full potential and prepares them for a life of purpose and making a valuable contribution to their world.

The College was founded on the Marist and Josephite traditions, and we strive to build on the charisms of the Marist Fathers and the Sisters of St Joseph whose Catholic faith values are central to everything we do. The College motto: ‘Live By The Truth’ reminds us all that we must seek the truth; for it is in truth that we find the best in ourselves and the best in others. Holy Spirit College provides a holistic, Catholic education. The aim for those who enrol at the College is to embrace our Catholic culture, as well as developing skills, values and attitudes that enhance all natural gifts.

Students access exceptional opportunities through academic challenges, rigorous endeavours and spiritual formation. We are a strong, faith-filled community that celebrates the core values of Resilience, Integrity, Spirit and Excellence (RISE). These values guide our teachers and students alike and inform our community that we all rise to be the best version of ourselves.

In living out these values we are creating a College community where Resilience is shown by our ability to respond to the guidelines and expectations of the College and ability to adapt to change, challenge and adversity, where Integrity is shown by the respect and pride shown to ourselves, others and their environment, where Spirit is shown in how this community values its Catholic identity and demonstrates a deep reverence and compassion for all of God’s creation and where Excellence is shown by our dedication to achieving personal best and engaging in all aspects of College life.

Through a wide choice of academic subjects and co-curricular activities, we can provide your child with an education that embraces new technologies and academic achievement. There is an expectation of every student at the College that they do their best academically, that they involve themselves in the life of the College, and that they have a place for God in their hearts. I commend this website to you and welcome you to Holy Spirit College, Bellambi.

Mr Christopher Agnew, Principal
