Message from the Principal

​​​ 

The 2019 academic year has seen dynamic and exciting learning taking place across the college. Students have been deeply engaged in rich curriculum opportunities that develop core skills and transfer these into meaningful understandings.  Our clear focus on enhancing student literacy has involved teachers collaborating regularly around engaging lesson preparation for our young people. Student literacy has enhanced as a result and this will support their learning across all subject areas.

 

College resources continue to improve. Our current building project will conclude during Term Two delivering us with state-of-the art Science laboratories, learning spaces and a cafeteria that will form a central celebration space within the college. program Our one to one Macbook program has facilitated learning, collaboration and organisation for our young women and men.

 

Co-curricular activities have coloured our Wednesday afternoon program with students training in earnest for the SECA (South East Colleges Association) interschool sporting competition. SECA Northside commenced this year and our students are well prepared for the competitive opportunities this association provides.

 

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.​


​Regards,
