An Independent Catholic Girls Secondary college - Day and Boarding

Where Ambition Meets Compassion


Our Boarding Facilities

Our newly renovated Boarding House offers two levels of air-conditioned dormitory-style accommodation. Located on Townsville's Strand beachfront, our boarders enjoy an idyllic location in which to live, learn and enjoy life.

Students in Years 7 and 8 are accommodated together in our St Teresa's wing. Due to their younger age, it is important that they are together as they learn to adjust to boarding school life.  

Students in Years 9 -12 are accommodated in the Level 1 and Level 2 dormitories, in both single and multi-rooms.  

Year 11 and 12 students are also offered a place in the new Catherine McAuley Suites that offer more independent living. Places in this wing are offered to girls based on their behaviour, approach to study and attitude.

All areas are air-conditioned, with common areas, kitchenettes, bathrooms and laundries.
