At St Mary's any concerns or reasonable suspicions about a student’s safety and wellbeing or the behaviour of a staff member or volunteer which a student considers to be inappropriate, will continue to be managed in accordance with Rockhampton Catholic Education Student Protection Processes.
Catholic Education has a comprehensive approach to student protection which builds on measures already in place to safeguard children and the integrity of caring, professional teachers.
Catholic Education has in place procedures and mechanisms incorporating State Government legislation and the Queensland Catholic Education Commission's (QCEC) directives to protect students. In addition, further steps have been taken to ensure 'best practice' in care for children, most notably the appointment of Ms Anne Czekanski as the Student Protection Coordinator for Catholic schools in the Diocese of Rockhampton. The Diocesan Catholic Education Office has developed a Student Protection brochure for the information of Parents, Caregivers, Students and Staff.
