Management, Organisation & Safety

​​​​​​​Po​licy

At St Eliza​​beth’s Catholic primary school, effective management and organisation involves a cyclical process incorporating strategic planning, enactment, and evaluation. We aim to provide a safe learning and working environment by complying with current legislation, to support the safety and wellbeing of our students, parents, voluntary workers and others who visit the school.

Rationa​le

St Elizabeth's School​ is committed to a high quality inclusive Catholic education, achieved by effective financial resource management and organisation, through our strategic planning. We provide an environment which protects the emotional and physical well-being of our students, staff, volunteers and visitors to the school premises, under the governance of Workplace Health and Safety Act of Brisbane Catholic Education.

Valu​​​es

As Cat​holic Educators we hold fundamental values that are foundations to our work with students, parents and colleagues. We value:

  • Collaboration and subsidiarity –
    Using shared wisdom in decision making.
  • Mutual accountability -
    Reporting on the degree to which our intentions are realised.
  • Catholic Christian Community –
    A community that does not exist for itself but is empowered by the Spirit to be at the service of others.
