 About Us



Our Vision & Missionhttp://www.stjohnfishercollege.qld.edu.au/About Us/Pages/Vision-and-Mission.aspxOur Vision & Mission<h2 class="ms-rteElement-H2"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">OUR PHILOSOPHY</span><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"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">TO LOVE & TO LEARN</span><br></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 and nurturing atmosphere.<br></p> <h2 class="ms-rteElement-H2"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">TO LIVE AS CHRISTIAN PEOPLE OF FAITH</span><br></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 College chapel provides a place for regular liturgies, as well as for private prayer and reflection.  Priests from the surrounding community support the College in the regular provision of Eucharist.</p>

SJFC Student UN Ambassador http://www.stjohnfishercollege.qld.edu.au/News/Pages/Fisher-Christmas-for-Hope.aspxSJFC Student UN Ambassador <p>​<br><br></p><p>St John Fisher College (SJFC) Year 11 student Prabhdeep Kaur is on her way to becoming a leader of tomorrow after being accepted into the United<img src="/News/SiteAssets/Pages/Fisher-Christmas-for-Hope/prahb.jpg" alt="prahb.jpg" class="ms-rtePosition-2" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:400px;" /> Nations Student Ambassadors Program. <br></p><p>Prabh said she has long had an interest in international relations and participated in the United Nations (UN) Youth Australia Emerging Leaders Program in 2021. <br></p><p>"During this time I gained an in-depth understanding of political and diplomatic leadership positions offered by the UN and associated government organisations, as well as how they operate in the Indo-Pacific Region," she said. <br></p><p>“Following this, I was kindly invited to apply for the United Nations Student Ambassadors Program.  <br></p><p>“In this role, I try to encourage other SJFC students to become global citizens and find ways to give back to the community.  <br></p><p>“I also intend on running get-togethers to provide an opportunity to socialise with other ambassadors.  <br></p><p>“In addition to this, I have begun participating in regular Model United Nations (MUN) simulations. These are virtual exercises looking at solving global issues alongside hundreds of thousands of students worldwide from all levels of education – primary school to university." <br></p><p>Prabh says her hard work and dedication to this role has helped her to take on challenging situations with confidence, what she believes is a vital characteristic of a leader. <br></p><p>“Many of today's leaders in law, government, business and the arts participated in MUN as students," she said.  <br></p><p>“During this experience I have learnt that those with authority can override public opinions and this specifically is something I have pledged to avoid at all points throughout my leadership journey."<br></p><p>College Principal, Cathy Galvin, recommended Prabh for her role and says she is definitely a student with huge enthusiasm and big ideas on how to change the world.  <br></p><p>“Prabh is dedicated to her studies, has an open mind and is deeply respectful in her dealings with teachers and other students," Ms Galvin said.  <br></p><p>“I can absolutely see Prabh in the world of diplomacy, she is a mighty role model to her peers and we can't wait to keep watching all she achieves."<br></p><p>Ms Galvin said Prabh's participation in the United Nations Student Ambassadors Program was just one example of how the secondary college works hard to prepare students for a changing world.<br></p><p>“Our strong academic outcomes, combined with an appreciation for vocational and co-curricular experiences, give our students the best opportunity to success in life beyond the school gates."<br><br></p>
