Guardian Angels’ is a Catholic, Systemic, Parish Primary School located in the suburb of Wynnum in Brisbane. The school is operated under the direction of the Brisbane Catholic Education Centre and is seen as an integral part of the Guardian Angels’ Community.
The school is well located which allows many opportunities for the children to take in the history, the local area and also boasts a panoramic view of Moreton Bay. Buses and trains are in close proximity to the school. Families are attracted to the school for its ability to provide example and living out of Gospel Values and aspiring to excellence in educational standards and opportunities. The motto of the school is “To Achieve Life” and through this we encourage the children to use their God-given gifts and talents in service of others.
The school offers a wide range of opportunities for students at many levels of development. The children are appreciated as individuals, each with enormous potential. However each child is also a social being living within a community. As we are a Catholic School, the children are immersed in the Catholic faith and culture, and through the leadership of our parish priest and parish community (staff, parents and volunteers), the children are led to live the Gospel Message and take it forth into the wider community.
Curriculum is progressive yet grounded in the basics, aiming to prepare the children well for a wide range of future needs. We take seriously our commitment to providing an holistic curriculum which addresses the intellectual, spiritual, physical, social, emotional and artistic development of our students. Outcome Based Education is an integral part of all aspects of the curriculum. Japanese is taught in Years 6 & 7. The school Resource Centre is a focal point of the school.
Guardian Angels’ celebrated the opening of its pre-school in February 2003 and its second campus in 2004. An extensive building and refurbishment program continues to change the landscape at Guardian Angels’.
We aim to be an exemplary Catholic Learning Community, united in living the Gospel.
In achieving this Vision we will experience:
- Relationships which are inclusive, mutually respectful and based on trust
- Learning which is dynamic, interactive and purposeful and
- A culture which is hope-filled, courageous and caring through organisational structures which are efficient, helpful and which enable participants to achieve their purposes.
