Who to talk to if your child goes to a Catholic school

In most cases, your child’s school will be able to help you with any concerns you have.

If your child goes to a Catholic school and you would like to seek support for your child, please contact your child’s school. Your child’s school will offer a range of programs and services and will work closely with you to find the best support for your child’s academic, social, and mental health and wellbeing needs.

Talked to the school and things are still not working out?

In most cases, your child’s school will be able to help you with any concerns you have. However, if you have worked closely with the school and you are still not happy with the outcome, please email the Queensland Catholic Education Commission (QCEC) at enquiries@qcec.catholic.edu.au. The QCEC will forward your query to the Catholic school authority responsible for your child’s school so they can work with you and your child’s school to deal with your concerns.

The Queensland Catholic Education Commission

The Queensland Catholic Education Commission (QCEC) is the organisation (peak body) that represents Catholic education in Queensland. The QCEC supports Queensland’s Catholic schools in offering high-quality, faith-based, and affordable education in an inclusive, supportive learning environment but does not own or operate schools. The QCEC website has useful information for parents about choosing a school, children’s wellbeing and safety, and partnerships with parents including Catholic School Parents Queensland, an organisation that supports families whose children attend Catholic schools.

Looking for a better fit for your child?

If you feel your child’s school is no longer a good fit for your child, there are other options. You could consider another Catholic school, an independent school, or a state school for your child.  And if your child is between the ages of 15 and 17 years, there is a range of education and training options available that might suit your child’s learning style and career goals.
