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>

Shelterbox Appeal http://www.stjohnfishercollege.qld.edu.au/News/Pages/Shelterbox-Appeal-.aspxShelterbox Appeal <p>​<br></p><p><span style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Following the deadly explosion in Beirut, St John Fisher College with Rotary Aspley will be fundraising to support an initiative called Shelterbox. The explosion has killed at least 170 people, injured 65000 and left 300,000 people without homes, decimating the city and the livelihoods of locals. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Shelterboxes​ are big green boxes containing family-sized tents designed to withstand elements, providing emergency shelter to those affected, until they can rebuild their home. One shelter box costs $1100 and every dollar is one step towards providing the temporary shelter many families need in emergencies. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Kicking off the efforts with a good old fashioned, coin line, the girls have raised $453 with the tally to continue as fundraising continues in term 4. To strengthen appeal efforts, the College will be running a radio campaign with 96.5FM, calling on others to donate what they can to this worthy cause.  <img align="right" alt="3317072.jpg" border="0" data-cke-saved-src="https://emarketing-au.s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/53158/9xXGbXc8JwNb11JNKV3xoLd2r8PIm3qVJzK9ttwKHeA/3317072.jpg" src="https://emarketing-au.s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/53158/9xXGbXc8JwNb11JNKV3xoLd2r8PIm3qVJzK9ttwKHeA/3317072.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:600px;height:400px;" /></span></p><h2>To donate visit:</h2><h2> <a data-cke-saved-href="https://www.shelterboxaustralia.org.au/" href="https://www.shelterboxaustralia.org.au/">https://www.shelterboxaustralia.org.au/</a></h2><p><span style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> ​</span></p><p><br>​<br></p>
