Message from the Principal
Christ the King (CTK) is a high quality learning community with an enrolment of approximately 330 students. CTK is a co-educational school, offering classes from Prep to Year Six. The school was opened in 1937 by the Presentation Sisters. We celebrate our heritage and value the Presentation Charism. Christ the King operates within the Corinda Graceville Catholic Parish and forms part of the network of Brisbane Catholic Education schools.
We are a small school and highly value the relationships we form within our community. Because of the small size of our school, teachers and support staff know each child by name and it is our priority to maintain a safe, secure environment where all children experience belonging. These relationships are strengthened by our prayer and community life as exemplified by our Friday assembly where parents and community members join our students and staff in prayer and celebration of our school life. Our school has a very pastoral nature – students and staff are part of small groups where students across all year levels from Prep to Year 6 nurture and support each other.
Our parents are very engaged and proactive in their commitment to learning and teaching in the school. Staff are open to feedback from colleagues and community members to improve student learning. Staff value collaborative practices and within learning teams they share ideas and support each other to improve their teaching and learning both for themselves and for the benefit of their students.
Shared values and beliefs about learners and learning are evident in our recently created and implemented Vision for Learning. The Vision for Learning has enabled all stakeholders to understand our commitment to improved learning outcomes and to plan for whole school improvement and performance.
