At Marist College Ashgrove we encourage our students to be Marist Men always, 100% of the time. This means our students live out our Marist Values 100% of the time.

The Marist College Ashgrove Values are:

  • Being in the Way of Mary
  • Love of Our Work
  • Presence
  • Family Spirit
  • Simplicity

Quintessential to our Marist spirit is to live like Mary ‘Our Good Mother’ and in the spirit of Champagnat with a sense of hospitality, family spirit, humility and simplicity, love of the Gospels and love of work.

A Marist boy will come to know simplicity in his approach, with a focus on essentials, a happy atmosphere, kindness and in keeping informal relationships through dialogue.

He will have a warm understanding and empathy with people, open and genuine attitudes and being loved and appreciated for his own sake.

He will show sympathy for people and things and exhibit an appreciation of culture and religious aspirations. He will be enthusiastic and love life. He will respond to the need for friendship, communication and connectedness.

A Marist boy will have a love of work and good order. He will show respect and look to work at tasks together.
