Catholic Education Week

Catholic Education Week is an opportunity for all Catholic schools to celebrate and promote their distinctive mission and ethos. 

Catholic education strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society.

Catholic education:

  • Is a faith-based education which places the values of Jesus at its centre
  • Is a high quality, holistic education for 1 in 5 young Queenslanders, educating them to be well-informed, highly skilled and constructive members of the community
  • Values diversity and treats each student with dignity enabling them in turn to promote and respect the dignity of all
  • Nurtures in students a commitment to social justice and a critical social consciousness
  • Prepares students for global responsibilities through stewardship of the earth’s resources
  • Is an integral part of the local and universal Church
  • Occurs in welcoming, inclusive, and connected communities.

Australian Catholic Superannuation and Retirement Fund

For over 30 years, Australian Catholic Superannuation has been privileged to maintain close ties with the Catholic education community. As part of this strong affiliation, we’re also proud to lend our support each year to Queensland Catholic Education Week. Catholic schools play a vital role in educating young Australians. They aim to give students the best possible start in life so they can develop to their full potential, guided and supported by dedicated teachers and support staff.

This corresponds with our own approach, where the Fund guides and supports members in their financial education and decision-making as they save and plan for eventual retirement. While financial security is a vital aspect of retirement planning and a recognised goal for most Australians, we believe living life to the full in retirement means you should not focus only on your monetary wealth. Helping you consider broader health and well-being issues in our information and advice sessions enables you to gain a more well-rounded perspective on your future retirement lifestyle.

Australia’s largest Catholic industry super fund
We can help you with your superannuation, insurance, retirement planning, financial advice needs and more. When it comes to building then protecting your finances for the future, know that “Good advice, given in good faith” is the way we approach managing your finances.

For more information about us, our services and how we can work together to support the education community, or to arrange for us to visit your school* and talk with staff, please call your Qld Regional Managers Paul Lynch or Zilla Lyons on 1300 658 776, or visit our website at www.catholicsuper.com.au
