We cultivate our students' natural sense of inquiry and aim to inspire a journey of learning throughout their school years and beyond.
Through our passionate and skilled teachers and a wider community that truly supports and cares for each other, St Eugene College will provide a valuable education for your child.
Our differentiated programs provide support and challenges for students with a wide variety of abilities and interests within the classroom. In addition to the opportunities outlined below, students undertake enrichment and extension within their classrooms with their class teachers and additional teachers who support students. This is provided by a student support team consisting of dedicated professionals including Head of Student Support Services, Support Teachers for Years P-3, 4 – 7 and 8 to 12 as well as a team of school officers working within classrooms providing extra support as required. The student support services team also includes an Autism Queensland Specialist teacher, Guidance Counsellors and an onsite Speech Pathologist providing support to our students, staff, and parents.
We meet these needs by providing support to students which may include adjustments in class relating to academic, social, or emotional needs. Students are supported individually in class, in small group settings, as well as targeted intervention programs. Working in partnership with parents and students, educational support plans are developed by teachers and Case Managers.
A range of Social Emotional Programs are conducted across the college to meet the needs of selected groups of students. These programs include Drumbeat; Seasons; Rock and Water; PALS and are facilitated by trained staff onsite during school hours.
Other opportunities for students to show case their talents and build their capabilities as a learner include but not restricted to:
Robotics activities and competitions, Chess Club and competitions, Maths and Science Competitions, Accelerated Reader, ICAS competitions, Tournament of the Minds and Write a Book in a Day. These opportunities provide students with the chance to showcase their abilities and develop them further. For example, the Write A Book In A Day Competition promotes literacy and extends highly-able students. Working as a team, students are encouraged to demonstrate their love of literature and use their skills in critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity. Tournament of Minds is a problem-solving program, where teams of students are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges from one of the following disciplines – Applied Technology, Language Literature, Maths Engineering and Social Sciences. Tournament of Minds is an opportunity for students with a passion for learning and problem solving to demonstrate their skills and talents in an exciting, vibrant, and public way.
In all we teach, we explore opportunities to transform the priorities of a generation who have the capacity and ability to make a difference.
