The Diocesan Education Council (DEC) assists the Bishop in formulating the Townsville Diocesan Catholic Education vision and identity. The DEC makes and monitors educational policies so that they are consistent with the Diocesan Mission Statement. The policy framework of the Diocesan Education Council provides a unifying focus for all Diocesan colleges, and colleges formulate additional policies to address operational aspects of school life.
St Catherine's Catholic College is committed to ensuring a safe school environment for all students, with a focus on the critical area of student welfare. All schools in the Townsville Catholic Diocese have a comprehensive Student Protection program for all staff (teachers, school support staff and office staff) in the Diocese. Information on Student Protection can be found on the Townsville Catholic Education Office website and all processes are outlined in the Student Protection Document featured below.
