Brisbane Catholic Education seeks to create quality learning opportunities for all students and to grow engagement, progress, achievement and wellbeing.
Brisbane Catholic Education is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all students and the protection of students from harm and abuse. With a culture that student protection is everyone’s responsibility, our employees seek to prevent abuse and harm to students and respond appropriately to students who have been abused or harmed or are at risk of being abused or harmed.
In 2019, a review of Student Protection Processes and Guidelines was completed to assure appropriate responses are made when matters of student protection come to the attention of staff. These processes ensure that steps taken by Brisbane Catholic Education staff in schools and the office result in prompt, professional, sensitive and appropriate action.
In 2019, Brisbane Catholic Education partnered with external organisations to trial student mental health and wellbeing initiatives:
The inaugural Festival of Ideas provided a platform for secondary students to discuss the issues that impacted their educational experience, including safety and belonging, curriculum, facilities and student voice. Students collaborated in action teams and pitched action plans to their peers, including the establishment of a Student Voice Team in 2020. The festival was successful in valuing and respecting the contributions of students to make schools safe, inclusive and student focused.
