San Damiano College Catholic Secondary School Taking Enrolments For Year 7 Students
Places are filling up for the first student intake for San Damiano College, which will open its doors in 2021 to Year 7 students. There will be 75 students in the first Year 7 intake, with the college growing in population and infrastructure over subsequent years until complete, with around 500 students, in Years 7-12 in 2026.
Principal, Peter Edwards, said the first Year 7 students would be
making history. Every time we take a new enrolment there is a lot of excitement about being part of the first intake for the newest school in Yarrabilba”, said Peter.
“These Year 7s will be the first to learn in our buildings, the first to play on our sports facilities and the first to graduate as Year 12s in 2026.”
The school leadership team has now grown, with Paul Mead, from Padua College, being appointed as deputy-principal. Paul is an experienced teacher with a strong background in secondary curriculum development and nurturing the best from each individual student.
“I’m honoured to take up to be the first deputy-principal at San Damiano College and look forward to welcoming the Year 7 students in January 2021,” said Paul.
While a Catholic school, founded in the Franciscan tradition, San Damiano College is an inclusive community and welcomes students of all faiths who support the values and ethos of the school. There is no fee for enrolment and the college is offering reasonable school fees including financial aid for families needing assistance and discounts for siblings.
San Damiano College caters for students of all abilities and is ideally located on 5.8 hectares in Yarrabilba and is part of a 32 hectare educational and sporting precinct. Students from Yarrabilba, Logan, Waterford, Tamborine and Buccan areas are encouraged to enrol and join the San Damiano College family. It will be the start of an extraordinary educational journey.
