About our school

Our college motto “To Love , To Serve, To Shine” grows from our Christian values and lived through our commitment to inclusivity, community service and personal achievement as we walk in the footsteps of our Patron Saint, Mary Help of Christians.
We aim to develop our students holistically in a school community that embraces the Catholic ethos, values each person and gives them a lasting sense of belonging. We value effort and commitment and support and challenge our students to become their best selves. In doing so, we provide a school environment in which our students can grow holistically, and promote activities, processes and structures that enhance a love of life.

Principal's Message

As the Principal of Southern Cross Catholic College, I welcome you to Townsville’s newest co-educational Prep to Year 12 College.

We value the education of young people in a Catholic environment and are committed to providing quality opportunities that will develop and enhance the gifts of our students. The College, under the patroness of Mary Help of Christians, is closely aligned with St Joseph the Worker Parish, Wulguru and is administered by the Townsville Catholic Education Office.

At Southern Cross Catholic College we are educating for life-long success. We recognize each child as being unique and formed in the image of God. Our aim is to assist in the development of the whole person through fostering a school environment in which students can grow in all aspects of life and become their best selves. Our careful balance of academic, sporting, cultural and spiritual programs ensure students develop the skills and attitudes needed to lead successful and fulfilling lives.

Southern Cross Catholic College is at a crucial stage in its development towards becoming a leading P-12 school in the Townsville Diocese. Our experienced and dedicated staff nurture and challenge students to perform to the best of their ability. Southern Cross Catholic College is a remarkable place where people are valued, standards are high, learning is a lifelong journey, transformation is a reality and faith is serious. We provide an affordable, accessible and excellent Catholic education for primary and secondary students who wish to be a part of a school community that fosters a friendly and trusting collaboration between staff, students and their families. With primary and secondary cohorts on one campus in easily accessible Annandale, students progress seamlessly from Prep to Secondary, benefiting from the consistent values and high expectations of the college community.

On behalf of Southern Cross Catholic College, I would like to thank you for your interest in our school.
