Student Protection in Catholic Schools

Student protection and wellbeing are paramount in all Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Rockhampton. By the very nature of their mission and ethos, Catholic schools in the Diocese of Rockhampton place the highest priority on the safety and care of the children and young people who are their students. All students have a right to expect that the school will always do all that is possible to protect them from any kind of harm and create safe learning environments.

Catholic Education is committed to best practices in student protection and the development of proactive approaches to equip people with the skills and knowledge to identify risks of harm and respond appropriately.

At St Patrick's, all Leadership Team members, Mr Fox, Mrs Hammermeister, Mrs Cook and Mrs Wilson are designated Student Protection Contacts, as is Laura Batts, our counsellor. Please contact any one of these staff if there is any issue at all you wish to discuss in regards to Student Protection.
