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.
ENROLMENT INTERVIEWS YEAR 7 – 2017
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.

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.

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.
