One of the most important concerns of any community should be the health, safety and wellbeing of its children and young people. Children and young people should grow up free of violence and exploitation.
What this means at Catholic schools is that we focus not only on the academic or educational achievements of our students, we also focus on the spiritual, emotional, physical and social development of each child. Our schools recognise that every child is special and unique and we make every effort to cater for their individual learning needs.
The Catholic Church affirms that...
"The Catholic School sets out to be a school for the human person and of human persons. The person of each individual human being, in his or her material and spiritual needs, is at the heart of Christ’s teaching: that is why the promotion of the human person is the goal of the Catholic school."
‘The Catholic School on the Threshold of the New Millennium’ (Congregation for Catholic Education, 1999) n.9.
The Diocese of Toowoomba Catholic Schools Student Protection Policy, Processes and Guidelines highlight our commitment to the protection of children and young people while upholding their right to a safe and secure environment.
By choosing a Catholic school you have guaranteed that your child will be nurtured in an environment which engages with the Gospel teachings.
