  • Our Story

    The gift of education, every child’s right,

    is an enlightening of the mind and heart.

    It is the joy of discovery, the searching

    of the curious, the skills of the everyday,

    the quest for excellence, the reward

    for effort. Catholic education is all

    these things – and more!

    Catholic schools are vibrant places where young people come together to learn about themselves, others and the wonderous beauty and possibilities of the world in which they live.

    Young people come to know themselves, and others, as human beings “created in the image and likeness of God” (Gen 1:26). Our focus is on the joyous discoveries of learning, the power of critical thinking, the importance of human relationships and the gifts which flow from our ancient but ever-evolving faith tradition founded in the person of Jesus Christ. Our students, at every level, are inspired to reach their potential so they will make the world a better place.

    Catholic schools aim to offer high-quality learning to meet the needs of every student. In our schools, you will find professional educators responsive to the contemporary demands of literacy and numeracy, social and emotional intelligence, cutting-edge technology, 21st century skills, wellbeing and a promotion of creativity and artistry.

    In the midst of our contemporary culture, schools seek to be a bridge between the world in which our families live and embracing the promise of God’s new world by following the Gospel vision of justice, peace, respect for all creation, and the common good of the whole human family.

    Catholic schools are not all the same. Schools respond to the needs of their local community. They each express their values and mission in differing ways: responding to charisms (gifts), seeking justice and meeting the needs of local families.

    Catholic education is a celebration of our God-given human possibilities which are always greater than we dare to imagine; it is an inter-generational gift crafted from the spirited vocation and commitment of those who have dedicated their lives to the growth of wisdom.

    Archdiocese of Brisbane

    The world is evolving and changing at a rapid pace. Disruption has become the new normal. To ensure we prepare our students to not only adapt to this changing world but to flourish within it, Brisbane Catholic Education must respond to the challenges of today 
and tomorrow.

    Archbishop Mark Coleridge

    Archbishop of Brisbane

    Schools have long been an important part of the Church’s story because they are a unique environment for passing on to the young the infinite treasures of Jesus Christ, teaching them the great art of being human and equipping them to unleash new energy in the Church and in the world.
