The Indigenous program at St Brendan’s College is underpinned by the four touchstones of the EREA Charter: Gospel spirituality, liberating Education, Justice and Solidarity and Inclusive Community.
The program seeks to offer Indigenous students the opportunity to reach their full potential, whilst enabling them to develop and build upon their own individual cultural knowledge and understanding. By doing so, St Brendan’s College aims to be an agent of reconciliation whilst seeking to close the gap for Indigenous outcomes. It is hoped that when an Indigenous student chooses to embark on the journey of secondary education at the college, they will find a home away from home in an environment of inclusivity, mutual respect and high expectation. It is for this reason that the community of St Brendan’s works strongly to uphold the dignity of each and every individual and enable them to navigate their own path to success at the College and beyond.
St Brendan’s provides a team of dedicated staff to support Indigenous students through their time at the College. ‘The Indigenous Education Team’, headed up by the Director of Indigenous Education, enables students to access cultural programs and opportunities, as well as educational services. The team also provides a friendly face and pastoral support through the dedicated Indigenous education space. Through services such as these, we work to ensure Indigenous students experience St Brendan’s College as a place of cultural safety and encouragement.
