CaSPAQ is the Queensland State Branch of CaSPA (Catholic Secondary Principals Australia), the national body based in Canberra. CaSPAQ was formed in 1996 (then known as the Association of Catholic Secondary Schools of Queensland) to bring together systemic and order-owned Catholic colleges to discuss issues of common concern and to present a united view to the education community.

All 88 Queensland Catholic secondary schools, represented by their principals, are members of CaSPAQ. CaSPA interacts with the Federal Government on all educational policy affecting Catholic Secondary schools across the country.

dotpoint The Aims of the Association

The aims of the Association are guided fundamentally by the desire to enhance and promote the Principal-ship as a position of leadership, responsibility and significance in Catholic Education, in the wider education circles and in the community generally. The stated aims include:

  • To promote the interests of Catholic Education in the State of Queensland.
  • To provide a structure in which Principals may lend support to members in their work. To this end it is a forum for sharing the problems and concerns which are part of the Principals’ role, and also for exchanging ideas on education and management which will be of benefit to the members.
  • To conduct meetings and conferences for its members,
  • To encourage professional development of members.
  • To gain representation on policy making bodies which impact on education.
  • To be proactive and reactive to changing educational philosophies and processes.
  • To foster the dissemination of information and opinion on educational issues.
  • To serve when requested as a consultative body to the Bishops of Queensland, Catholic Education Authorities and other State or national education bodies.
  • To maintain close contact with its counterparts in the State and Independent school sectors, seeking discussion with these bodies on critical issues affecting education in Queensland.
