Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Marian Catholic College


We are a co-educational, comprehensive secondary school providing a holistic approach to education that fosters the development of both academic and personal excellence, supported by Catholic values and traditions to prepare our students to serve and enrich a dynamic and ever-changing world.

The College was established in 1988, which was proclaimed as the Marian Year of the Church and, as such, was named Marian Catholic College. Mary was adopted as the College Patron and, through our special devotion to her, she is our model of discipleship and evangelisation, showing us how to “Walk with Christ” each day.

At Marian, there is a deep connection among our Marian family, founded on strong partnerships and positive relationships between our students, our dedicated and generous staff, our parents and our parishes. We find unity in our diversity and our inclusiveness promotes students and staff who are compassionate, curious and collaborative with a strong commitment to ensuring all members of our community always feel safe, supported and respected.

In living out our mission we challenge all learners to achieve personal excellence by providing opportunities balanced across the four areas of College life - mission, learning, the arts and sport. Our teaching and learning approach is contemporary and aims to inspire life-long learning, fostering a students’ personal world-view through critical thought, whilst always being respectful of the diverse needs of all students, ensuring each student at Marian reaches their full potential.

The college prides itself on preparing students to be leaders of the future, who are able to adjust and embrace challenges. Through our integrated student leadership model and house system we foster a strong sense of community spirit and aim to inspire our students to pursue academic excellence, express their creativity, and embrace experiences across leadership, sport and service. Marian graduates are hope-filled, prepared to make a difference in our world.

I thank you for your interest in our College. I invite you to learn more about our school or visit our picturesque campus nestled in natural bushland. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the school office
