St Brendan's College, YEPPOON QLD
St Brendan’s College is a Catholic Year 7 to 12 day and boarding school for boys located on a beautiful 300-acre campus in Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast. The College was founded in 1940 by the Christian Brothers and built on the land of the traditional custodians, the Darumbal people.
The College is the leading choice for boys in Central Queensland, with the teaching methods and practices focussed specifically on a single sex education.
Emphasis is on the development of the whole person and in particular the need to grow boys into respectful, confident and successful young men of faith. A proactive Pastoral Care program and the Edmund Rice ethos underpins all endeavours and creates boys who understand and believe in service to the community in a spirit of justice and solidarity.
The strong academic program offers multiple pathways for students to pursue tertiary education or move into trade-based qualifications, with a significant and renowned vocational education and training (VET) facility onsite.
The College is recognised nationally for its sporting prowess, and has abundant co-curricular opportunities, including music, cultural and technology programs that are second to none in Central Queensland.
The community strives for excellence and has a reputation for producing friendly, hard-working and down-to-earth young men. Enrolments are drawn from the Capricorn Coast, from rural and regional Queensland and from as far north as the Torres Strait. With this diversity of students, strong cultural and social interactions are assured and friendships are often maintained for life.
The boarding residences provide a wonderful living environment, nestled amongst beautiful gardens, abundant sporting fields and adjacent to the first-class academic facilities of the College. Every opportunity is at the boys’ fingertips and with guidance from the Heads of Residence, House parents and members of the support services, there is space for them to grow and mature.
We are a diverse, vibrant and welcoming community founded on the values of the Gospel. St Brendan’s College is confident that in providing a well-rounded education in partnership with parents and families, the young men of the College will enter the world with the knowledge, confidence, values and skills to make a difference.
