About our school

Mt Maria College Petrie is a Catholic coeducational College for students in Years 7 -12 in the Marist Tradition. There are approximately 490 students enrolled. Nestled on four hectares of gardens in the education precinct made up of the University of the Sunshine Coast (Morton Bay Campus) and Our Lady of the Way Catholic Primary School.

Holding high expectations for all within our community, we actively seek to create a learning culture where all students believe they can be successful in their learning, know how they learn effectively and understand how they can make progress towards their goals for future pathway success.

Our teachers and support staff lead learning conversations to move motivation and engagement forward and our teachers actively engage in high-quality pedagogical practice and feedback processes to ensure student engagement with learning. We actively encourage parent engagement in their child’s learning because we know this leads to improved academic and wellbeing outcomes for all students.

Our Marist Charism is central to College life. These provide a meaningful lens to connect our young people to find their place in the world through leadership development and experience success at school and in life beyond school.

Principal's Message

Welcome. I am deeply invested in ensuring that every student is given the opportunity to achieve their potential.

Maintaining high expectations for our learners and teacher practice and embedding our Marist values in all that we do are my key priorities. In this way we can continue to nurture and inspire our students to become lifelong learners with the skills and disposition to make a difference in their world.

I strongly believe that parent engagement is essential to successful student learning and wellbeing outcomes and that this can be achieved when parents and teachers share common understandings and goals.
