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>

St John Fisher Bursary Fundhttp://www.stjohnfishercollege.qld.edu.au/News/Pages/St-John-Fisher-Bursary-Fund.aspxSt John Fisher Bursary Fund<p>​<span style="font-family:inherit;color:#050505;font-size:15px;white-space:pre-wrap;">A</span><span style="font-family:inherit;color:#050505;font-size:15px;white-space:pre-wrap;">s the festive season and end of the school year rolls around many of us like to show our gratitude to one another with a gift. There is a strong tradition at the College for this gift to be one that pays it forward by donating to a charity or a worthy cause. This year we are encouraging our community to donate to our newly established bursary, founded in 2019 by three year 9 students. Realising and appreciating the opportunities their education provides, the founding students, set about to create a Bursary to make an education at St John Fisher College available for students whose families are experiencing financial hardship. To make this bursary a sustainable one, the fund balance needs to sit at $50,000 with the current balance sitting at $7,676.68. </span></p><div class="o9v6fnle cxmmr5t8 oygrvhab hcukyx3x c1et5uql ii04i59q" style="margin:0.5em 0px 0px;white-space:pre-wrap;font-family:"segoe ui historic", "segoe ui", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;color:#050505;font-size:15px;"><div dir="auto" style="font-family:inherit;">Girls’ education goes beyond academics and opportunity, it is about ensuring girls feel safe and empowered to make decisions about their own lives. Girls face many more barriers to education than their male counterparts with women making up more than two-thirds of the world’s 796 million illiterate people. Through this bursary, we can offer a child a better life, a better future and the opportunity to change their circumstances with the power of knowledge and education.
