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.

As stated in previous correspondence - the decisions made on the welfare of students, staff and parents are made in consultation with Rockhampton Catholic Education based on information from the Queensland Government and Queensland Health. The decisions we make aim to keep all members of our community safe. We expect the virus to be around for quite some time, so we need to ensure our decisions are effective and sustainable. There has been talk of school closures but at this point in time it is not seen as the best option for our children or their families given this threat could continue for a number of months.

Protective measures in place at St Brendan’s:

  • Increased focus on good hygiene practices
  • Exclusion of students and staff with flu-like symptoms
  • Cancellation of whole school gatherings
  • Increased cleaner’s hours
  • Cancellation of school sport
  • A register of exclusion time for students who have travelled overseas
  • Running training to continue to allow students an opportunity to exercise in an acceptable environment

Our children are absorbing much of the information we see in the media and appear to have a good grasp of the risk and the precautions we must take. It is important that we monitor their behaviour and mental health to ensure they are not getting unnecessarily stressed. We must make it clear to them that life must go on within the safe practices guidelines and they are still allowed to have fun and enjoy themselves.

This Lent, and for the remainder of this term, children, classes and families can purchase CARITAS Shop Tokens through the Office, or by giving a little to their class's Project Compassion Money Box each week.
