Learning Virtue

Character Education

Character is destiny – Heraclitus

Character shapes the destiny of an individual person, and of a society. The content of good character is virtue, and the aim of the activities of Nairana fosters the learning and acquisition of virtue.



Through personal, concerted study a student learns to overcome the tyranny of whim and correspondingly grows in fortitude and maturity. The daily supervised study sessions, study weekends and courses in study skills contribute to establish an environment of hard work and dedication at Nairana.


Community Service

The boys also take part in regular visits to aged care facilities and other endeavours that assist the needy. These activities help them to foster a sense of solidarity and appreciation for social justice among people from all walks of life so that in every person they learn to see another self.
