ST EUGENE COLLEGE, BURPENGARY QLD
St Eugene de Mazenod Primary School was opened in 1990 by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate Priests. Nestled in an idyllic bushland setting, the College is taking enrolments for Prep to Year 12 in 2020, 2021 and 2022, with Prep Year and Year 7 being the focus. The College is master planned for a total enrolment of 1,500 (four drafts primary and five drafts secondary ) denoted in Phase of Learning mini communities of Prep to 6, Yrs 7 to 9 and Yrs 10 to 12. Since the inception of the school, St Eugene’s has offered quality, inclusive Catholic education based on strong Catholic beliefs and the Oblate charism. This is enriched by a caring environment which fosters a strong sense of community, and allows each student to reach his/her full potential. The College strives to assist students to reach their potential through various pathways offering an innovative curriculum enriched through the use of state of the art technology, facilities and grounds.
We offer extra curricular activities, among these are, Junior and Senior Choir, Stage and Concert bands, Instrumental Music Lessons of all genre, competitive sports both inter and intra school. Students in Year 7 - 12 are in the SECA Association involving inter-school sport with other Catholic Colleges on a Wednesday. A school musical is held every second year for middle school/senior years. Some years junior school students are also invited to audition depending on the musical, year 12 will have a Formal each June.
College based pastoral care is the total climate of care which exists in a school. It is our aim that this should reflect the broad Christianity of individuals caring for and respecting one another. It should include a structure where teachers and other professionals are responsible for the emotional and spiritual well-being of individual children and where strong relationships are established between teachers and the students and their families. Furthermore, the caring philosophy will be reflected through all major sections of the college, such as counselling, behaviour support and the curriculum. St Eugene College is committed to ensuring our students’ sense of belonging. A child’s sense of belonging is essential in order to reach their full potential academically, intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally and in faith development. Within the Pastoral Care program, this educative process is enhanced through a variety of programs throughout each year. In the Middle School, this program is designed to cater for the needs of the students at this developmental phase of their lives. As young adolescents, your child will be undergoing many changes both physically and emotionally. It is our desire to ensure that both boys and girls are catered for with information that is both age appropriate and in line with the Christian values we espouse as a College. Students will undergo information sessions throughout the year on the following topics: • Relationship Building and Right Relationships • Coping with change and stress • Values education • Leadership skills • Student Protection and Personal Safety • Career Transition education. Students from Year 7 are organised into Pastoral Care groups at the start of each day. Within these Pastoral Care groups, students meet with their Pastoral Care teacher for 20 minutes where they come together to pray, mark the roll, listen to announcements about their schedule for the day, celebrate birthdays and discuss current events of interest. Students also meet for one period a week either for a year level assembly or in their pastoral care group to learn information about the topics listed above. The Pastoral Care teacher gets to know these students well after a period of time, due to the nature of these daily sessions. The students within these pastoral care groups can easily identify with their fellow pastoral care group members and their pastoral care teacher in this pastoral setting. Issues of concern about your child should be first addressed with the pastoral care teacher if your concerns are of a pastoral nature. If further intervention is required, the pastoral care teacher will be able to access additional support for you and your child.

Our students can immerse themsevels in culture, the arts, maths and science competitions and also if selected, can do University courses here at the College.
We also offer a Learning Support program for children who need this. We have dedicated teachers across the year levels to cater for these students.
Literacy and Numeracy is important to us and our students and as such we have 3 teachers specifically assigned to helping teachers and students with all aspects of literacy and numeracy. These teachers plan and attend professional development on a regular basis to gain the most up to date knowledge of this area, which they then can share with staff and students.
Students travel to our college either by car, train or on bus. The Bus Company to contact should you wish to see if a bus route is near your home is Kangaroo Buslines on 1300 287 525
You are welcome to attend a College Tour with Jo Morris every Wednesday of the School Year from 9am to 2pm. By appointment only, 3491 4607 or email@example.com
We believe our Wednesday tours are far more beneficial than an Open Day. When you wander around our school you see our students and staff just as they are, engaged in their learning. It is very transparant, open and honest when you tour one on one with Jo.
If we do have an OPEN DAY it will be advertised on our website and also on facebook and instagram.
We understand the importance of personalisation and flexibility when working with families. We work with students each step of the way, through their educational journey at St Eugene's, we advise on all aspects of education and wellbeing to ensure success now and into the future.
At St Eugene College every students belongs. They belong to their House, their class, their phase and most importantly, their whole Prep - 12 family. Our teachers specialise in and have a deep understanding of the learning and pastoral care of young adolescents. We value-add to learning because of the authentic continuity of curriculum that can be achieved in a Prep - 12 setting - a benefit to both our existing students and for those joining us. We have a genuine understanding of where they have been and where they are headed.
