St Anthony’s Vision for Religious Education faithfully aligns itself with both the BCE Vision for Religious Education and the BCE Learning and Teaching Framework which state:
The schools and colleges of the
Archdiocese of Brisbane aspire to educate and form students who are
challenged to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and who are literate in
the Catholic and broader Christian tradition so that they might
participate critically and authentically in faith contexts and wider
society. (Vision for Religious Education 2013)
As a Catholic Christian community we
educate all to live the gospel of Jesus Christ as successful, creative
and confident, active and informed learners empowered to shape and
enrich our world. (Learning and Teaching Framework 2012
The Vision for Religious Education
challenges students to be a religious voice in the world. The Vision
gives greater prominence and a renewed orientation to the critical
interpretation and evaluation of culture. Through vibrant and engaging
Religious Education, students become active constructors of culture
rather than passive consumers.
At St Anthony’s we are a Catholic Faith
Community that is challenged to authentically live the Gospel of Jesus
Christ in the tradition of St Francis. We strive to educate our students
to become active, literate and informed learners who are empowered to
contribute and make a difference to the community in which they live. We
use the example of St Francis to empower us to live out the gospel
values of Jesus. We recognise that our Franciscan values of Respect,
Reverencing Creation, Contemplation, Shared Responsibility and Joy guide
all that we do and underpin our Vision and Mission for our school.
Deus Meus Et Omnia “My God My All”
At St Anthony’s, we place God, and the
example of Jesus, at the forefront of all we do. Our school motto has
shaped our past and continues to inform our future as we journey
together as followers of Christ.
At St Anthony’s, we are a school steeped in the valuing of relationships and all that it means to be a follower of Christ.
St Anthony’s is a faith community where gospel values are central to the life-force and functioning of this Franciscan school.
We value and respect each person’s uniqueness.
Collectively we share the responsibility for the development of each member of our school family.
We give praise and are thankful that all things are gifts from God.
We are reflective people who understand that life-giving growth comes from saying sorry and accepting forgiveness.
We embrace a joyful, fun attitude that is forever grateful for God’s gifts.
