Curriculum Framework

 The curriculum at Our Lady’s College is designed to maximise opportunities for our students and is centred on the Brisbane Catholic Education Learning and Teaching Framework. Developing the whole person is a priority and our curriculum targeted to inspire young women, is designed to develop learners who are empowered to shape and enrich our world.
The College has an extensive wireless network that enables access across the entire campus and all classrooms are equipped with built-in audio-visual technology. The One to One Laptop program operates across all year levels and allows students immediate access to their learning anywhere, anytime.
Our Lady’s College is well advanced in the process of phasing in the Australian Curriculum and subjects in Years 8, 9 and 10 are framed by the Australian Curriculum where available and focused around the General Capabilities. In Years 11 and 12, students follow courses outlined by the Queensland Syllabus Authority and are supported to make choices about the learning areas and programs to ensure their eligibility for the Queensland Certificate of Education and a wide offering of credentials, including Certificate I, II and III, Diploma, OP and Rank.
Opportunities exist in Year 10 for students to complete Certificate I courses. In Year 11 and 12, students can study Certificate courses in Business and Hospitality or take the opportunity to enrol in offerings at Southbank Institute of Technology or the Metropolitan South Institute of TAFE. Students also have the opportunity to enrol in University subjects offered for students.
Japanese language is taught to Year 12, and partnerships with schools in Japan ensure opportunities for families to interact through hosting opportunities. 
Permeating our curriculum, is a strong sense of generosity and professionalism by teachers who seek to extend, challenge and motivate our young women to reach their potential and to share our dream that they develop a life-long love of learning.
