Message from the Principal

Welcome to St Teresa's Catholic College Noosaville

Principal David McInnes

The College was established by Brisbane Catholic Education in 2004, progressing from its embryonic stages in demountable accommodation on the ovals at St Thomas More Primary School, Sunshine Beach to its present location on Sea Eagle Drive in Noosaville.

The personal spiritual experiences of St Teresa, who believed that God is love and that real prayer is nothing other than the expression of a relationship of friends, is lived out in the daily life of the College. So too are the traits of the second of the dual charisms of the College, that of St Marcellin Champagant, founder of the Marist Brothers. In these two saints of the Church we have role models that challenge us to be contemplative, mystical and prophetical people whom trust in God and his providence to allow us to do the best we can in all that we do.

The College holds a strong commitment to contemporary learning and teaching frameworks, models and strategies. Engaging the students in a love of learning is an explicit priority. As parents and teachers, we want the best outcomes for our children and students, as we undertake learning that is rigorous, relevant and based on trusting relationships.

I look forward to working with our current families and new families into the future as we join to grow young people of faith who develop minds open to learning, ever ready to contribute to a better world, one based on the Joy of the Gospel.

I encourage each of us to: ‘Dare the Dream.’
