Strategic Vision and Priorities

Catholic education exists to support parents and carers as they carry out their sacred obligation: to nurture the spiritual, academic and personal growth of their children.
Our Strategic Vision sets the direction for Catholic Education Tasmania as we work to provide an education for our students that encompasses their comprehensive spiritual, academic and social-emotional development.

Student Focused • Christ Centred • Learning for Life

Our Catholic Education Tasmania 2021 - 2023 strategic priorities are founded on the vision of providing student focused, Christ-centred learning for life.

Our focus for the next three years will be on the following key areas:

  • Make disciples of all
  • Excel in learning for all
  • Nurture leadership for all

These goals were developed to align to, and expand on, the four domains of the Archbishop's Charter for Catholic Schools - to enhance Catholic Identity, to foster Learning, to nurture Leadership, and to support Mission.

Make Disciples of All (Matthew 28:19)

Be welcoming and give preference to those in need.

Be explicit in our Catholic belief and practice.

Reach out in active discipleship.

Promote life-giving partnerships between Home, School and Parish.

Excel in Learning for All (John 10:10)

Achieve excellence in learning and teaching animated by faith.

Raise aspirations for students, staff and communities.

Infuse the core Catholic teachings across the curriculum.

Provide formation that develops the whole person.

Nurture Leadership of All (John 13:12-15)

Plan for ongoing recruitment of quality staff.

Nurture all for leadership to meet future challenges.

Form Catholic leaders at all levels of CET by building faith, leadership abilities and ethical behaviours.

Encourage leaders at all levels to be self-reflective and committed to ongoing development. 


To achieve these goals we commit ourselves to be a community of faith, collaborative and connected, and courageous and creative.
