First Nations People (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander: ATSI)

​ ​

Chisholm Catholic College has a strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait focus developed over several years.   The primary focus being to support our First Natons students to achieve success at our College.  As a school we pride ourselves on caring for our children.  This is reflected in how we care for our Indigenous students academically, culturally, socially and emotionally.

Chisholm also has several excursions and camps for our First Nations students.  We run cultural camps to Moreton and Stradbroke Islands, a camp to the Garma Festival Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory and excursions to Ngutana-Lui in Inala, St Stephen's Cathedral in the city and Employment Expos all over Brisbane, just to name a few.

One of the many ways we support our Indigenous students at Chisholm Catholic College is through QATSIF.  This is now o​ur fifth year as a QATSIF school.  This funding enables our senior Indigenous students to receive scholarships, helping them financially which furthers their opportunities to enjoy great success at our school.  Over this time, we have had 100% of our Indigenous students graduate with a Year 12 certificate and go on to exciting career paths.

All students at Chisholm Catholic College have the opportunity to to benefit from the oldest continuous culture to ever have existed, helping us all to better our understanding of this wonderful world we can live in.
