- All boys playing a Sport for their school has not changed.
- The concept of struggle has been part of the tradition and DNA of a Catholic Education for boys at Richmond Rd hasn't changed.
- Struggle to be accepted as a school in 1903; Struggle to survive in the depression years of the 1930s; The struggle to survive during both world wars; The striving always to have a quality education with limited resources and a limited numbers of students; The striving always to be educationally recognised among Auckland schools
- Routines and Rituals as the daily by-line for a boys school has not changed.
