Clairvaux MacKillop College is a Catholic Co-educational Secondary College administered by the archdiocese of Brisbane.
The College enrols students from Years 8 to 12 and has a student population of around 1200 students. The spirit of the College is a reflection of its aims and heritage. There is a strong system of Pastoral Care which seeks to implement the aims of the college.
The College strives to educate the whole person, spiritually, intellectually, socially, and morally. We believe in the importance of a broad curriculum suited to the needs, abilities, and interests of our students. The College offers a broad range of subjects, catering to many ability levels. In the junior school, the curriculum offered provides great diversity, as well the 'core' subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, History and Religious Education. The senior school offers both academic and vocational pathways.
The co-curricular life of the college is active and varied. We aim to provide a broad range of co-curricular opportunities and actively encourage student participation.
St Agnes, Mt Gravatt as one of the 150 schools of the Brisbane Archdiocese, is bound to improving educational outcomes for all our students, in that they will live fulfilling productive and responsible lives through letting their light shine.
Our vision is to make the dream (kingdom) of Jesus present in our daily activities through our learning and relationships. This is captured in our vision: to let our light shine through lifelong learning, life enhancing relationship s and life giving spirituality. We live this through the St Agnes Way: awareness, respect, safety, cooperation and active learning. These values are tangibly demonstrated in the activities and interactions daily.
We believe in the value of a high quality education for every child through creating a safe, welcoming and educationally purposeful environment. Our goal is to empower every child to shape and enrich our changing world by living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We do this through developing engaging, challenging and supported learning experiences offering a diverse curriculum and extra curricula activities. In 2012 we will continue to implement the Australian Curriculum.
