Community Engagement

The Community Engagement Officer role is to establish and manage the development of the cultural programs for students, provide pastoral care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and their families work closely with key stakeholder groups including Townsville Catholic Education Officers, the College Leadership Team, The Community Consultation Committee and external government agencies. The Community Engagement Officer also provides leadership and advice in the area of community capacity building within the College context with a particular focus on the community consultation meetings and coordination of staff visits to remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

 Community Engagement requires a relationship built on trust and integrity: it is a sustained relationship between parents, friends and organisations working towards shared goals. St Teresa’s College has a diverse range of communities and it is important to acknowledge that each community is unique. It is only through continuous engagement of parents, friends, communities, and organisations that the College can continue to effectively educate the young men entrusted in our care.

Community Visits

 St Teresa’s College, Abergowrie understands it can be difficult for some families to travel to our school, so St Teresa’s College, Abergowrie comes to you. The College’s community visits offer families in remote and regional areas the opportunity to ask questions and meet College staff who welcome both new enquiries and old faces.

 These community visits provide an opportunity to meet with families who have entrusted St Teresa’s College, Abergowrie College with their sons and also to keep in touch with our College Old Boys. Visiting staff organise meeting rooms to allow new families to ask questions. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Newsletters to find where we are visiting next.

We acknowledge the hospitality of the Warrgamay People, the hospitality of this land, and the reciprocal relationship the College enjoys with their current generations."
