Welcome from the Executive Director

​​Welcome to Brisbane Catholic Education's website. Since the first Catholic school opened in Elizabeth Street in Brisbane in 1845, hundreds of thousands of students have enjoyed the benefits of a Catholic education before going on to make their mark in the wider community.

Today, Catholic schools are at the forefront of the Church's mission of serving and suppor​​ting the people of the Archdiocese of Brisbane. We are conscious that, for many, the Catholic school is their primary connection with the Church.

It is my honour to work with a dedicated team of teaching, support and administrative staff in more than 145​ locations across south-east Queensland. Each and every one of us is committed to providing a high quality, Christ-centred, inclusive education to all who share our values and wish to join us. Please accept my invitation to browse through this website to learn more about our schools and our approach to education.

We are entrusted with a great responsibility to shape the minds and souls of the young people in our care. I invite you to consider working in partnership with us as we engage in the important work of teaching, challenging and transforming the leaders and citizens of the 21st Century.
