Principal's Message

Gilroy Santa Maria College is a co-educational Catholic College administered by Townsville Catholic Education with a current enrolment of approximately 300 students.

We are recognised throughout Northern Queensland as a school that has achieved great success in the academic, cultural, sporting and vocational fields over the past 60 years.

Our curriculum is broad, allowing for the development of students in many areas. We have a skilled Student Support Services Team available to provide counselling, career advice and learning support for students, parents and teachers.

Gilroy Santa Maria strongly promotes a friendly, learning, Catholic community and encourages the growth of our students through the gospel values. Our staff are dedicated professionals with a supportive, pastoral approach who believe in holistic development of our young men and women in the Catholic tradition.

I invite you to visit our community and see our beautiful grounds and working environment. Gilroy Santa Maria College would be an excellent choice of Secondary College for your child and I am confident you would experience what it means to be a part of a friendly, learning, Catholic community.
