St Brendan's is a co-educational primary school offering Catholic education for children in the Northern Beaches of Mackay. Officially opened in 2015, our school continues to grow towards two classes in each year level. 

We offer a holistic approach to schooling where children, in partnership with their parents, are nurtured, valued, respected and encouraged to reach their potential.

Our school motto 'Finding God in all Things' challenges students to respect others, value the world around us and to offer their talents to the community.

We offer:
~ State of the art facilities
~ Quality educational experiences
~ Dedicated teachers
~ Before School, After School and Holiday Care
~ Pre-Prep Education- accredited Kindergarten Program

We warmly welcome you to visit our school, tour our facilities and experience what we can offer your family.

2021 is the year our original Prep students become our Year 6 leaders. In 2021, for the first time, we will have students who have completed all of their primary school years here at St Brendan’s.

We will be conducting our School Captain Speeches on Monday at 8.40am. House Captain Speeches will take place on Wednesday from 11.35am. Our Year 5 students will have a nomination process this week to select the candidates for the positions.

I have received a number of questions about COVID restrictions for next year. At this point in time it is difficult to foresee what any changes will look like. I will notify parents of the procedures we will be using to ensure we keep our children and ourselves safe. We know our borders will be open next week and people will be moving around our country a great deal more. It is important we continue to do all of the things we have been asked to so if there is an outbreak it is contained, and restrictions are limited.

This year we will be having a Christmas Carols Event at school on Wednesday 2nd December. The format will be similar to that of the Dancefever Showcase last term, but limited to a maximum of 2 adults per family. Parents will be encouraged to attend their child’s section only, as this will allow us to restrict numbers and adhere to COVID social distancing requirements.

  • 9:00am – 9:45am        Prep, Yr 1 and Yr 2 
  • 9:45am – 10:30am     Yr3, Yr4, Yr 5 and Yr 6 

The P&F will be selling tickets in a CHRISTMAS FAMILY HAMPER... all proceeds will go to helping our school families in need.

Collection dates and times:

  • Monday 30th November 8:15-8:45am and 2:45-3:15pm - current Prep and Year 1 students.
  • Tuesday 1st December 8:15-8:45am and 2:45-3:15pm - current Year 2 and 3 students.
