Child Safety Committee

As modelled by Our Lord, we seek to fulfil our mission of enabling all students to come into the fullness of their own humanity. This includes respecting the dignity and sacredness of each person. Our actions reflect our belief that each person is made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:27).

 St Thomas Aquinas College is committed to promoting and protecting the interests and safety of children. We have zero tolerance for child abuse. Everyone working at St Thomas Aquinas College is responsible for the care and protection of children and reporting information about child abuse. We have published a Statement of Commitment to Child Safety which acts as a guiding document in terms of all stakeholder’s interactions with children. Our Mission and Aims and Core Values will also reflect our commitment to child safety. (STAC Child Safety Policy and Procedure V 2.2 April 2021)

St Thomas Aquinas College has appointed the following staff as the College’s Child Protection Officers. Each Child Protection Officer is available to answer any questions that staff, parents or students may have with respect to our Child Safety and Protection Program (CSPP).
