Learning

​​​Learning at St Thomas More College is based on our College mantra of Do More. Be More.

“We develop the whole person spiritually, academically, physically, culturally, and socially. We're a multidimensional school that hangs our hat on being a strong faith learning community. We achieve this by keeping our expectations of students and staff high, encouraging a growth mindset, nurturing a love of learning for life, and providing learning that challenges and motivates. And that's the edge our students will take into the future, it's that critical thinking, that ethical thinking, and the ability to make a difference in the world."

​Les Conroy, Principal


​St Thomas More College offers a curriculum in which all students have the opportunity to 'Do More and Be More'. The College delivers a curriculum that develops the whole person - spiritually, academically, physically, culturally, and socially – in the context of an inclusive Catholic com​munity.​

We strive for excellence by maintaining high expectations of students and staff, encouraging a growth mindset, nurturing a love of learning for life, and providing learning that challenges and motivates. Our curriculum program is built upon the Brisbane Catholic Education Learning Framework, guided by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority syllabus documents and the Australian Curriculum, and aligned with the goals of the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration.

At St Thomas More College we:

  • ​​facilitate a successful transition to high school by offering a Middle Years program that is inclusive and supportive of each individual student.
  • prepare students for the world beyond high school through a Senior Years program which offers a wide range of learning pathways, high quality advice and support for students to make informed choices about their future and transition smoothly to further education, training or meaningful employment.
  • engage students in a holistic religious education program with a focus on religious literacy.
  • work in partnership with parents – the child's first educator – to support each student's progress through the middle and senior phases of schooling.
  • develop each student's personal, social and emotional growth through a Pastoral Care program which fosters connections, engagement and resilience.
