New Local Catholic College

San Damiano College Set To Open In 2021

It is my pleasure to welcome future students and families to San Damiano College. From 2021, San Damiano College will provide an affordable, quality co-educational secondary education for the communities in and around Yarrabilba, Logan Village, Chambers Flat and Tamborine.
If you live in the area you may have seen our new school under construction. Situated on a 5.8-hectare site at Yarrabilba, San Damiano College will be completed in four stages (see diagram below), with stage one ready to welcome our first intake of 75 Year 7 students in January. Enrolments will increase by one year level each year until 2026 when the Year 12s graduate.
At San Damiano College students will have access to a diverse curriculum, coupled with sporting activities, university engagement and vocational pathways. It is part of a 32-hectare educational precinct being developed in partnership with government, university, community and corporate agencies. Our facilities will offer outstanding opportunities for our students to further their learning.
The name San Damiano comes from the San Damiano cross in front of which St Francis was praying when God urged him to teach others how to embrace the Gospel in their lives. The architecture of the school has been designed to reflect a ‘feel’ for the village of Assisi as a reminder of the work undertaken by St Francis and the Franciscans. The colours in our school crest reflect the natural ecology of Yarrabilba.
While we will be blessed to have this ‘learning oasis’ with modern buildings, state of the art equipment, and an affordable fee structure which includes a laptop for every student, it’s the overall holistic approach underpinned by the values and standards of the Brisbane Catholic Education community that makes the difference.
As the foundation Principal of San Damiano College, my goal is to create a warm and welcoming environment where every student will be known by name. We will support every student to reach their full academic and personal potential to become young people of faith, courage and integrity.
