Abstract

This study investigates the place of students who are not Catholics in Catholic schools in Australia and, in particular, in Queensland. It does so primarily through a re-­‐examination of history and through an analysis of relevant educational, ecclesial and theoretical documents. It begins with the origins – both mythological and historical -­‐ of Catholic schools in Australia and traces the place of non-­‐Catholic students in Catholic schools through the lens of the Second Vatican Council, the documents of the Congregation for Catholic Education and Australian episcopal documentation about Catholic schooling.
