St Agnes Primary School is one of 150 schools across the archdiocese of Brisbane. At St Agnes it is our mission to nurture and inspire our children with a quality education, based on Catholic beliefs and traditions, within a positive community. This mission is enacted by following the St Agnes Way of Respect, Awareness, Co-operation, Active Learning, and Acting Safely which is heavily supported by the values of Compassion, Justice and Courage. At St Agnes, we “Let our Light Shine" is all we do each day.
This philosophy is supported by the goals of the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) declaration (2019) to ensure our students are given an education that promotes excellence and equity for all students and that students are given opportunities to be confident, creative and successful learners who actively contribute to their learning and to our community.
St Agnes school is committed to quality learning and teaching with teaching practices that are responsive to the ages, abilities and needs of students, within a faith-filled learning environment. A depth of learning, appropriate to student development, is provided to all students in alignment with the national Australian Curriculum.
Our aim for all students is that they feel valued and respected within our school community. Every child is encouraged to move their learning forward to the best of their ability, in a supported and caring environment. We believe we must be respectful of the rights, feelings and beliefs of others and it is our responsibility to assist everyone in our community to be the best that they can be
