As a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice Tradition, Nudgee College students are inspired to build a better world for all through spiritual formation programs, community liturgical events, service learning, advocacy and social justice initiatives.

Our mission as an Edmund Rice Education Australia school is to offer a liberating education, based on a gospel spirituality, within an inclusive community committed to justice and solidarity.

Coming together as a community in prayer in one of the foundations of the College since 1891. The College community gathers regularly for prayer, liturgies and masses, with a weekly Sunday night Mass for the Boarding community and a Mass each term for every House in the day school.

Outside of the College, from Years 5 to 12, students are invited to attend retreats with members of their cohort, to provide opportunities for reflection, prayer and collaboration with their peers. From the Signum Fidei Retreat from our youngest students, all the way up to travelling to Immersions and Karios, each boy will have unique experiences with faith, courage, spirituality and leadership. 

Students are encouraged to break down stereotypes and build a better world for all through the College’s Social Justice Program. Initiatives include charitable fundraising, as well as acts of service and advocacy such as rolling swags and cooking food for people who are homeless, playing board games with people in aged care facilities, and marching in the Luminous Lantern Parade to celebrate cultural diversity.

As a College, we champion a culture of sustainability with initiatives aimed at protecting the natural environment and reducing waste. These include:

  • Regular tree planting days
  • A comprehensive recycling program
  • A vegetable garden, which contributes food to the Catering team as well as local charities
  • Waste audits to review what is being thrown in the rubbish and what can be recycled
  • 'Nude Food' days in the Junior School to reduce disposable packaging
