At St Augustine's our learners are at the core of what we do. Our teachers plan, teach, assess and report using the Australian Curriculum and the Religious Education Curriculum from the Brisbane Archdiocese. At St Augustine's a contemporary Catholic perspective and world view is celebrated and embedded throughout the whole Curriculum. Catholic Education aims to grow and develop the whole person, informed by an understanding that all are made in the image and likeness of God, therefore worthy of innate dignity. The aim of Catholic Education is to prepare all community members for active and faith informed participation in an ever-evolving society. 


The Australian Curriculum is three-dimensional – it includes learning areas, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities. It sets out the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities that are important for all Australian students. It describes the learning entitlement of students as a foundation for their future learning, growth and active participation in the Australian community. It makes clear what teachers should teach and students should learn as they progress through schooling. It is the foundation for high-quality teaching to meet the needs of all Australian students. 


This all contributes to a well-rounded education of all Australian students, providing the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for life and work in the 21st century.
