Vision & Missionhttp://www.stjohnfishercollege.qld.edu.au/About Us/Pages/Vision-and-Mission.aspxVision & Mission<h2 class="ms-rteElement-H2">Our Philosophy at ST JOHN FISHER COLLEGE<br></h2> <p class="ms-rteElement-P"><img class="ms-rteImage-0 ms-rtePosition-2" src="/About%20Us/PublishingImages/2%20Liturgy%20b.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:332px;height:243px;" />The St John Fisher community is inspired by God's spirit and the Catholic faith tradition to live, to love and to learn with respect for truth, the courage to seek justice, the gift of peace and the grace to forgive as we respond with equal dynamism to societ​y's challenges today and tomorrow. We are a Brisbane Catholic girls' college for Years 7-12 providing a contemporary and holistic Mercy education in the spirit of Catherine McAuley, that prepares young women for the world that awaits them. ​​​<br></p> <h2 class="ms-rteElement-H2">To love and to learn</h2> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">The holistic approach to education at St John Fisher College means that your daughter's spiritual, social, emotional and physical growth are promoted as well as her academic learning.  Because our Pastoral Care program is integrated throughout the school system, the Gospel values of love, justice, peace and forgiveness are taught by example and experience.  Sharing the support of a Pastoral Care teacher with a small group of other students offers your daughter an intimate, nurturing atmosphere.<br></p> <h2 class="ms-rteElement-H2">To live as Christian People of Faith</h2> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">The formal teaching of Religious Education in our curriculum is underpinned by the daily lived experience of Gospel values in our community.  The values of love, justice, peace and forgiveness are taught by example and experience.  The college chapel provides a place for regular liturgies and for private prayer and reflection.  Priests from the surrounding community support the college in the regular provision of Eucharist.</p>

2019 Student Leaders Inspired by AGSA Conferencehttp://www.stjohnfishercollege.qld.edu.au/News/Pages/2019-Student-Leaders-Inspired-by-AGSA-Conference.aspx2019 Student Leaders Inspired by AGSA Conference<p>SJFC College Leaders Feba Philip and Jessica Pinto were two of 168 lucky girls from 75 girls’ schools to attend the Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australasia’s Student Leadership Conference this January. The conference was the largest girls-only leadership event of its kind in Australia, held at The Women’s College, within the University of Sydney. </p><p>Students traveled from around Australia and New Zealand and as far afield as Zimbabwe, the Philippines and the United States to take part in the highly anticipated conference. During the event students heard from well known gender equality and women’s empowerment advocate Julie McKay, currently the Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer (CDIO) at PwC. Queenslander and past Brisbane Girls Grammar School student, Julie, was previously Executive Director of UN Women Australia and Gender Advisor to the Chief of the Australian Defence Force.​​​<br></p><p></p><p>The event allowed our leaders to rub shoulders with like-minded students from across the globe, all inspired to make a difference within their school and the wider community. "I'm incredibly honoured and privileged to be attending the conference where I'm sure to experience things out of my comfort zone, to meet like minded people and enhance my leadership skills. I believe it will inspire me and give me a new perspective that can help me<br>change our little corner of the world,’ said SJFC Communication's Leader Feba Smith.<br></p>

Why choose a girls' school?http://www.stjohnfishercollege.qld.edu.au/Enrolments/Pages/Why-choose-a-girls-school.aspx, Why choose a girls' school?Why choose a girls' school?<span class="frontquote">“Single gender classes provide a learning environment where the female voice is not marginalised. The personal attributes of the teachers, most notably their encouragement, care and availability, motivate these female students from single gender schools to excel” (Tully & Jacobs, 2010, www.agsa.org.au).</span><br /><br /> There are many favourable reasons to choose a single-sex school, particularly during early adolescent years as girls grow into young women and start laying the foundations for their entry into the wider world. Developing strong core values that lead to a sense of pride in one’s identity, is something that is integral to the mission of St John Fisher College. As the research suggests, amongst other benefits, single sex education leads to “improved self-esteem” and “psychological and social wellbeing in adolescent girls”(Cribb & Hasse, 2016 cited in www.agsa.org.au/why-a-girls-school-the-research/ ).
