History:

Caroline Chisholm Catholic College was founded in 1997, when three schools – Christ the King, St John’s and Chisholm College with roots stretching back more than 50 years – amalgamated to form one college.

Our school is named in honour of Caroline Chisholm, a Catholic social reformer who helped thousands of immigrants to Australia, particularly women, to find safe homes and respectable employment.

As a Catholic College we are committed to providing all students with an environment that values diversity and respects differences in our community, where each person is treated in a fair and just manner, and one that continues the work of Caroline Chisholm.


Description:

Caroline Chisholm Catholic College is a dynamic and innovative learning environment that caters to the needs of the western suburbs and beyond. We offer an affordable and quality Catholic education throughout the important formative years of secondary education. We aim to educate and prepare our students to be the best they are called to be within a faith-filled and inclusive environment.

Our approach to education is valued by our community as we strive for excellence. Our girls and boys are taught at different sites throughout Years 7-9. During Years 10-12 they come together to take advantage of the increased offerings. Student learning is enhanced by our Outdoor Education program conducted at Garema-Dumont located in the Brisbane Ranges.


Features:

We have international links with schools in China, Japan, England and Italy. Annual exchanges for students and staff are a feature of the calendar. The College has well-rounded programs in English, Mathematics, Science, Performing and Visual Arts, alongside a technologically-rich 21st century learning environment. Notebook computers are provided for all students in Years 7-12 and ongoing training is provided to all teachers to ensure that notebooks are effectively used as educational tools.

Continuing renovations and building maintenance, as well as provision of new classroom furniture, ensure that we continue to provide encouraging and stimulating learning spaces.

This all occurs within our safe environment where we model what it is to be a good Christian and a good citizen within our Catholic tradition.
