Director’s Welcome

On behalf of Catholic Education in the Diocese of Rockhampton welcome to our website.

Catholic Education in the Diocese of Rockhampton has a proud tradition stretching back some 150 years and ours is a story of courage, sacrifice, struggle, vision, commitment and above all of faith and trust in God. We owe a great deal to those who have gone before us, priests, religious and parents and lay educators who worked, sometimes in difficult conditions and often against odds to provide quality Catholic education to successive generations.

I am sure we would all agree that Australia has an education system of the highest quality and the Catholic Church has made an outstanding contribution to the development of this education system.

Here in the Diocese of Rockhampton our Catholic schools strive not just to be different but to make a difference in the lives of the young people entrusted to our care. Catholic Education in the Diocese of Rockhampton extends beyond our Catholic schools to encompass the areas of Adult Education and Faith Formation, and Religious Instruction in State schools.

Our website offers you the opportunity to learn and discover more about us and allows you to engage with us in our three areas of ministry. As Diocesan Director I welcome you and invite you to take time to explore and discover the information that we have provided for you. Should you require any further assistance or have any questions about Catholic Education please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Welcome to our website, I hope the information provided here will be of assistance to you.

God Bless
Miss Leesa Jeffcoat
