SCHOOLS & COLLEGES
Sacred Heart School, Booval
At Sacred Heart, we believe that we are called to Teach, Challenge and Transform for the benefit of our whole Catholic Community. We educate for a transformed world in communion, by nurturing the gifts and potential of each person, enacting shared leadership, and exercising a preferential option for the poor and marginalised.
As a Catholic Christian community we educate all to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ as successful, creative and confident, active and informed learners empower to shape and enrich our world.
St Peter Claver College
St Peter Claver College has an outstanding reputation in the local community. Students are offered a dynamic and inclusive curriculum with proven success in academic, sporting and extra-curricular opportunities. There is a strong emphasis on justice and service, especially towards the more marginalised groups in the Ipswich community. This Catholic understanding draws on its Marist, Mercy and Jesuit charisms.
The College has a rich cultural setting as it draws its students from a variety of backgrounds including a significant number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Pasifika students. A carefully considered Master Plan has resulted in the construction of excellent learning facilities for a growing College community, including its newly constructed Trade Training Centre in Construction and Hospitality and Visual Arts Centre.
There is a vibrant learning culture evident at the College. This culture is led by a committed and creative College Leadership Team and is supported by a stable, hard-working and caring staff. There has been significant thought given to the nature of the College’s middle management team so that the most positive academic and pastoral outcomes are sought for all students. The existence of such a professional staff has enabled the College to respond to the needs of students, with customised pathways and ‘niche’ curriculum offerings.
St Peter Claver College is an authentic Catholic school dedicated to working in partnership with families to enable all students to experience success in their learning.
