Strive to achieve


The Vision for Learning at St Augustine's guides our educational and organisational practices and encourages and supports every student to be the very best they can be in an evolving and ever-changing world. It provides our staff and community with a practical framework that guides the work that needs to be done now and, in the future, to enable our students to be successful and achieve their potential.


The Vision for Learning is reflective of what is lived for every student, in every classroom, every day.


The Vision and Mission at St Augustine's is reflective of the Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) vision:


Vision: We are a faith-filled learning community creating a better future.

Mission: To teach, challenge and transform through our service, support and leadership for Catholic   education in the Archdiocese of Brisbane.




It aligns with the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration in promoting excellence and equity with the aim that all our students become confident and creative individuals, having 21st Century skills to enable them to be successful lifelong learners, and active and informed members of the community.  ​​

The Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration released in December 2019, sets the national vision and goals for education for all Australians: 


  • The Australian education system promotes excellence and equity
  • All young Australians become confident and creative individuals, successful lifelong learners, and active and informed members of the community.
