The Catholic Education Commission Tasmania (CECT)  is appointed  by the Archbishop of Hobart.


"Good governance requires working toward common ground".

— Pete Hoeskstra


Governing Council

All Tasmanian Archdiocesan schools and colleges operate under the governance authority of the CECT and its four permanent Standing Committees:

  • Catholic Identity & Evangelisation
  • Education
  • People & Culture
  • Resources & Sustainability


The Commission advises and assists the Archbishop of Hobart and operates in accordance with the Archbishop’s direction as well as the doctrines and laws of the Church. The Tasmanian Catholic Education Office (TCEO) is the operational arm of the CECT.

The CECT's Resources and Sustainability Standing Committee (RSSC) has oversight of the College’s funding, financial and capital areas.
