Welcome to our website...
Good Counsel College is an independent Catholic Secondary College in the Marist Tradition that is committed to providing a quality Catholic education, founded on the dignity and respect of every human person. As a learning community we are focussed on a holistic approach to education seeking to enhance the spiritual, educational, emotional, physical, cultural and social development of all students, emanating from the Catholic ethos of faith, hope and love.
Our current enrolment of 580 girls and boys allows us to provide a wide range of subjects and programs in our curriculum including academic opportunities as well as vocational, trade and career training. We model our teaching and learning on contemporary, 21st century practices that challenge each and every learner to achieve their potential, while growing their personal characteristics of courage, integrity, compassion and consideration.
On Wednesday 3rd February we will celebrate the commencement of our school year with an opening mass at the Mother of Good Counsel Church. Like last year, we will be holding two masses Year 7, 8 and 12 at 9.00am and Year 9, 10 and 11 at 11.00am. The College Student Leaders will be formally commissioned at the 9.00am mass. Parents are most welcome to attend.
YEAR 12 LEADERSHIP
Over the weekend of Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th January, the Year 12 Captains – Ben and Reahn and Vice Captains—Peter and Abbey spent time at the Marist College, Ashgrove under the supervision of Year 12 Coordinator Bruce Oliver, learning what it means to be a Marist Leader along with Marist Student Leaders from around Queensland. This was an important formation opportunity for them and provided them with some foundational blocks on which to build their leadership this year. The remaining Year 12 Student Leadership Team members have been elected this week and will be announced to the College at the Opening Mass.
