Mater Dei College is committed to providing a distinctly Catholic education for children and to nurturing the whole person. The education and development of young people and in particular to their full human formation, is the focus of the College. The educational endeavours of Mater Dei College require a commitment on the part of parents, students, staff and Advisory Council for the objectives of the College to be maximised and realised for each individual student.

Parents are expected to be supportive of the general aims and policies of the College and to assist, where possible, in the attainment of the educational objectives of these policies.

Parents are expected to participate in those functions organised for the total College community and in those functions specific to the educational programme of their children (eg. Year Meetings, Teacher Nights, Parents and Friends Association, Canteen and Busy Bees).

Students are to support the College programme and to develop an understanding of their particular responsibilities as they progress through the College. In signing the Statement of Support for College Policies the students commit themselves to the College policies and practices and agree to support the regulations which are made or which may be made, from time to time, for the good management of the College.
