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.

Community News

We are currently finalising our numbers for 2017 and ask that if you are aware of students and families that have not put in application to ask them to do so as a priority to assist us in our planning. Families who have put in a Year 7 application but are waiting on an interview, these will re-commence in week one of Term Four. Our Year 7 2017 Orientation Day will be held on Wednesday 26th of October from 9am -1pm. I ask that you mark this date in your diaries.


Grade 7 and 8 students travelled to Cairns on Wednesday 7th September for a day of Rugby League at the Under 13 Gala day. They had 3 games, against Cairns SHS, Trinity Bay SHS and Smithfield SHS. Though winning only one of these games the players put in some fine performances. The hooker- halfback combination between Bryce and Sam was outstanding, constantly setting up plays and organising the defence. Aiden was our main strike weapon supported by Evan, both of these players made clean breaks running in most of our tries. Nicholas and Hayden ran strongly throughout the day, always making yards in attack. Cody, Angus and Edward were strong in defence against some much bigger opponents. Above all the boys worked as a team and played for each other. They did the College proud. Mrs Thomson did a fine job running the water as our League Safe Officer.

Building works on the refurbishment of the Administration Centre are progressing well but a slightly behind due to recent rains. The builder is hopeful of having the building water tight within the next 3-4 weeks, so that the internal fit-out can commence.

Planning is underway for works on the roof of the Champagnat Centre. As most would be aware, we currently have a feral pigeon problem that we have been unsuccessful in fixing. The roofing works will see this problem resolved, restoration of elements of the roof and the installation of large fans. It is planned for this work to commence and be finished before the end of the year.
