Christian Brothers´ High School Lewisham is a Catholic school catering for boys in Years 5 to 12. The school was established in 1891 and under the guidance of the Christian Brothers has established a fine reputation and tradition based on the development and achievement in academic, spiritual, cultural and sporting areas. The school prides itself on striving to develop the talents of each boy to the best of his ability as well as fostering team spirit within each student through active participation in the school´s co-curricular activities.
The school is the oldest school of the Brothers operating in Sydney. From a simple beginning of five classrooms, the school has grown to accommodate 1300 students from Years 5 to 12. Lewisham is one of the few Christian Brothers´ schools which has the name of the Order so prominently and so proudly displayed in its title.
The school is inseparable from its suburb, and from the order that has run it for over 100 years, an order founded by Edmund Rice which traces its beginnings back to the schools for the poor youth of Ireland in the early 19th century. The lay teachers associated with CBHS Lewisham are committed to following the ethos of the Christian Brothers. In keeping with its rich faith-filled past, it now has all the energy and vitality of a modern Catholic school in the Edmund Rice Tradition.
