Travelling Scholar

Every two years the ACSSQ parent body arranges and funds a travelling scholar.
The travelling scholar offers professional development in all five dioceses of Queensland:

  • Archdiocese of Brisbane
  • Diocese of Toowoomba
  • Diocese of Rockhampton
  • Diocese of Townsville
  • Diocese of Cairns

Through offering this professional development this association is able to make a significant impact on student learning in Catholic secondary schools.

In light of recent Church documents, Fr Richard Lennan addressed the continuous renewal required in Catholic schools so that the Christian message is delivered in a convincing way within contemporary society.
