Foundations of Catholic Education
Dr Lee-Anne Perry, Executive Director, Queensland Catholic Education Commission
We extend a warm welcome to the students, staff and families who formed part of our Catholic school communities this year, with more than 154,158 students, including 11,000 excited Preps commencing in Term 1.
We welcome two new schools, St Ann’s School at Redbank Plains and Woodstock Flexible Learning Centre (FLC) in the Gold Coast hinterland, which is expected to open later in the year.
Our Year 12 students, along with their peers across other sectors, will also be the first cohort to complete the new Queensland Certificate of Education.
I look forward to seeing the many more achievements 2020 is yet to bring.

Our Catholic schools provide a faith-based education focused on educating young Queenslanders to be well-informed, highly skilled and constructive members of the community.
Catholic schools value diversity and are welcoming and inclusive communities where families from a wide range of social, economic and religious backgrounds come together.
