St Andrew’s is a systemic Catholic primary school and is administered by Brisbane Catholic Education. Our tradition lies with the spirit of St Benedict. St Andrew’s school enjoys a unique arrangement that includes St Williams school, Grovely and Our Lady of Dolours school at Mitchelton under the umbrella of the Grovely parish. Specifically, the philosophy of St Andrew’s school centres on a way of life that Makes Jesus Real in the lives of all those who are the St Andrew’s family. The unique ethos that is St Andrew’s school finds its foundation and fulfilment in a way of life that Makes Jesus Real (MJR).
Our school community has identified values that echo the Benedictine tradition and enhance the ideals of Making Jesus Real. As a community we are conscious of the role that values play in guiding all that we undertake at St Andrew’s. These values are as follows:
Shared Responsibility and partnerships
When we understand and appreciate the fact that our Catholic/ Benedictine traditions form a strong foundation upon which our way of life (MJR) and values are enhanced, we know that the VISION of this school is steeped in the valuing of relationships and all that it means to be a follower of Christ.
