From the principal

​​​​​240207 WEBSITE Alison Jeffries - portrait (1).pngThis year marks 60 years of learning and teaching at Seton College and I am honoured to serve our Seton students and community as principal. We have an excellent team of educators and support staff dedicated to providing students with the best possible educational experience. Day in and day out, our hard-working team nurture our students and provide significant practical learning opportunities—critical during these formative years.

As we transition to closure at the end of this year, our goal remains ensuring graduates are confident in their abilities and meaningful contributors to society.

To achieve this, I am proud that our educational model is vibrant, diverse, and draws from the Australian curriculum with three defining features:

  • ​​a literacy and numeracy focus, the benefits of which include greater workforce participation
  • tailored pathways planning into the workforce or further study that include certificate level qualifications, apprenticeships, traineeships, and structured work experience programs
  • a high teacher to student ratio, pastoral care, personal development, and individual support for all students through our state-of-the art learning enhancement and positive behaviour for learning programs.

Whilst at Seton, students can attain their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE), however most are on individualised learning programs, which is recognised through a Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA).

There is no doubt we are operating our school under unique circumstances. However, like our patron St Elizabeth Seton, we are committed to ensuring the spiritual, intellectual, social, and emotional development of all our students.
