Vision Statement The schools and colleges of the Archdiocese of Brisbane aspire to educate and form students who are challenged to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and who are literate in the Catholic and broader Christian tradition so that they might participate critically and authentically in faith contexts and wider society.
The Vision for Religious Education challenges students to be a religious voice in the world. The Vision gives greater prominence and a renewed orientation to the critical interpretation and evaluation of culture. Through vibrant and engaging Religious Education, students become active constructors of culture rather than passive consumers. In this way, students are challenged to live the gospel of Jesus Christ in their everyday lives. Pope John Paul II (1984) reminds Catholic schools to: Develop your culture with wisdom. Ask culture what values it promotes, what destiny it offers, what place it makes for the poor and the disinherited, how it conceives of sharing, forgiveness, love.
Religious Education seeks to develop the religious literacy of students in light of the Catholic Christian tradition, so that they might participate critically and authentically in contemporary culture. Students become religiously literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently in and for faith contexts and the wider society.
St Kevin's seeks to be an authentic Catholic community which endeavours to achieve success, embrace life challenges and develop relationships based on Christian values.
As a Catholic community we aim to: - Live and grow as a faith community based on the story of Jesus, St Kevin and St Mary of the Cross MacKillop in order to promote compassion, justice and love in our world. - Foster and nurture the Catholic faith and spirit through the values underpinned in Biblical teachings whilst respecting the dignity of each person irrespective of their religious beliefs. - Develop students moral character and integrity thus empowering students to respect and live the Gospel.
