​​​​Our learning and teaching program is based on the Australian Curriculum and Religious Education Curriculum from the Archdiocese of Brisbane. We strive to maximise learning within a quality teaching and learning environment. Teachers and staff recognise the individuality of each student and place the needs of the learner at the centre of their teaching. A number of supporting documents provide values, beliefs and goals for quality learning and teaching. The Melbourne Declaration outlines two overarching goals for schooling in Australia:

  • Goal 1: Australian schooling promotes equity and excellence
  • Goal 2: All young Australians become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and   active and informed citizens

Brisbane Catholic Education’s Learning Teaching Framework is designed to support teachers in the planning of learning and teaching and underpins our school Values for Learning and Teaching.

The learning experiences and programs provide for differences in learning abilities and guide individuals to their own level of achievement by allowing opportunities for all children to achieve their full potential in all areas.

The formal school curriculum takes in the following Learning Areas:

  • Religious Education
  • Mathematics
  • English
  • Humanities and Social Sciences (History/Geography)
  • Science
  • The Arts
  • Health & Physical Education
  • Cultural Literacy Years 4 - 6 Japanese
  • Technology

Supporting the Educational needs

Q of A accepts students with a wide range of abilities. Encouragement is given to promote individual excellence and self-esteem by enabling students to achieve a level of mastery commensurate with their own abilities and with their particular stage of development. The Catholic Special Education Services provide specialised services and personnel to meet the needs of the students and to support their teachers.
