Learning at Gilroy
At Gilroy curiosity, imagination and love of learning thrive. We're working together to provide the most effective, engaging and challenging learning experiences.
As part of a system of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta, we’re working to transform learning for students in Greater Western Sydney. This means reimagining and refreshing, learning and teaching for today’s world and today’s learners.
The purpose and promise of a Catholic education is to inspire each learner - student, teacher and family - to discover a meaningful and rewarding life.
Our Faith Journey
Gilroy is a great place for students to grow in faith and learning. We value each student as an individual and share the values of the Gospel to help them discover the hope that is within and to experience a meaningful and rewarding life.
Beyond the Classroom
We believe it is important for students to pursue interests to find what they are passionate about. Our school gives them exposure to a range of exciting opportunities to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or follow a passion.
Sport is a valued part of a school’s curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child. It provides a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning. Participation, enjoyment and skill development are the cornerstones of school sport. Representative pathways are also available through the Parramatta Diocesan Secondary Schools Sports Council.
Library - The MacKillop Centre
Situated in a beautiful location, our library offers students access to a wealth of resources including thousands of books, multi-function printers, games and study spaces.
Bring Your Own Learning Technology (BYOLT)
Gilroy Catholic College operates a BYOLT or Bring Your Own Learning Technology program. Year 7 - Year 12 are required to bring an Apple MacBook to school
Students at Gilroy are able to choose from a wide range of subjects that meet their individual learning needs. The subject selection process is an important step in your child’s learning journey and we aim to provide parents and students with a clear understanding of the subjects available to them.
Parents as Partners
Strong partnerships between home, parish and school support students to grow in faith and learning. We recognise parents and carers as each student’s most influential, primary and essential educators.
