Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St Mary's College, Toowoomba

St Mary's College is proudly a Catholic boys school in the Edmund Rice tradition.

Our inspiration each day is to form Today’s Boys into Men for Tomorrow. We have a long-standing mission to develop men of faith, integrity, action and excellence. Therefore, our effort each day forms young men who are thoughtful, knowledgeable, and highly capable individuals who will thrive as leaders in a complex world beyond the walls of St Mary’s College.

Whilst our College provides an outstanding program for the holistic development of young men, nothing can be achieved without the academic commitment of each individual. We believe that every student has the ultimate responsibility for his learning and with confidence and commitment strive for this goal. Our students are encouraged to embody our motto “Conanti Corona”, striving for the best versions of themselves in their academic pursuits, aiming for improvement each year. Their work is supported by an exceptional teaching staff, who are leaders in their areas of expertise.

The faith dimension of our experience is captured by the Edmund Rice Education Touchstones – Gospel Spirituality, Liberating Education, Justice and Solidarity and Inclusive Community. In their time at the College, our students learn about the touchstones and how nurturing this understanding can ultimately lead to a better life for all in our community.

My sincere thanks to the St Mary’s College staff, parents and friends. We value your contribution and look forward to your continued support as we grow, improve and innovate the College into the future.
