Message from the Principal


​​​Semester One has seen the exciting conclusion to our building program, delivering us with state-of-the art Science laboratories, learning spaces and a cafeteria that forms a central celebration space within the college. The new learning areas are first class and provide the optimum backdrop for student learning and development.

​The first semester has seen dynamic and exciting learning taking place across the college. Students have been deeply engaged in rich curriculum opportunities that enhance core skills and transfer these into meaningful understandings.  Our clear focus on developing student literacy has involved teachers collaborating regularly around engaging lesson preparation for our young people. Student performance has enhanced as a result and this will support their learning across all subject areas. 

Co-curricular activities have coloured our Wednesday afternoon program with students training in earnest for the SECA (South East Colleges Association) inter-school sporting competition. SECA Northside commenced this year and our students have performed exceptionally with many teams winning premierships. More importantly, our young men and women have represented themselves and the college exceptionally well, competing with high effort and in good spirit.

Our Marist Charism flavours all that we do and offers a rich way to meaningfully connect the young people in our care to deeper understandings about the world. Our students have been heavily involved in outreach programs such as The Breakfast Club where they serve those in need within the broader community. 

​To prospective parents, please access the many opportunities that are available to engage with us to understand how we can support your son or daughter in this caring environment. To our current parents, as partners in the learning journey of our young people, I look forward to continuing to work with you as your son or daughter flourishes at Mt Maria College, Petrie. ​​
