A.B. PATERSON COLLEGE
GOLD COAST, QUEENSLAND

Strategic Intent

The Strategic Intent has at its very foundation our belief of ‘One College, One Focus,’ and is grounded in whole school goals and strategies to ensure a seamless transition throughout the College.

Our Vision is to develop in our students the intellectual character necessary to become passionate about the ongoing pursuit of learning; to have the skills and confidence to succeed in an increasingly complex world; and to become committed to creating positive futures for the good of all, through leadership, service and active participation in their communities.

We believe in every student having the opportunity to excel and to experience those special moments that will forever remain a treasured memory of their education at A.B. Paterson College. Whether it be the first time they enter our beautiful campus; the level of engagement and endeavour within the classroom; the occasions when they meet and overcome academic or personal challenge; their involvement in a special rite of passage; their realisation of their special achievement in an area of endeavour; or, the special relationships formed with their peers and their teachers - it is these special moments that shape their character and, ultimately, their lives, long after they commenced their journey at our College.

Our Strategic Intent document aims to celebrate our history and articulate our future directions in teaching and learning programmes, pastoral care practices, staff development, and building our future. We welcome you on this journey and together look forward to an exciting future.
