This group of students began their time at Marist on the same day that I commenced as principal. They have been a supportive and very positive year group

I have changed as much!
On the final Thursday of Term 3, we held the College Walkathon and we are now in a position to give Br Peter Corr via the Marist Asia Pacific Solidarity

We will retain our larger 20 seat Coaster bus which is useful for larger groups. This vehicle can be driven by any driver with a normal driverâs license and will be really useful for the trips involving smaller groups. We are very grateful to the P and F for their dedication over the years and for this particular outcome.

for students who are in hotter classrooms. We have been blessed over these years by good P and F groups who have had good leadership and determined
During the holidays our Indigenous Immersion to Far North Queensland commenced and it will finish this week. We are fortunate to have the support of great teachers who have led and supported immersions to India, Cambodia and now to the Far North. This immersion is being led by Mr Gabriel Rulewski with the support of Mr Ralph Chandler.
