Annual School Goals 2021
Catholic schools have a special and vital role in the Church’s mission in education; through providing a learning environment that is spiritually nurturing, intellectually challenging and emotionally caring. Catholic school communities continue to provide support to lifelong learners so that they will be able and willing to envision and contribute to the creation of a just, equitable and compassionate world.
Catholic schools are called to:
Give witness to the message of Jesus and the mission of the church
Have a clear Catholic identity
Be communities of care
Offer a relevant and holistic curriculum of quality teaching and learning
Be open and accessible to all who seek their values
Be characterised by inclusive partnerships within a community of faith
Our leadership team and staff draw upon Rockhampton Catholic Education’s Annual Strategic Plan and relevant school data to identify strategic initiatives and a clear direction for our school. Our school Annual Improvement Plan sets goals that are designed to promote excellence in learning and teaching, strengthen the Catholic Identity of our school, build professional capacity within staff, embed sustainable practices and strengthen partnerships.
