    Setting the academic bar high for Cairns

    As a College we were thrilled to announce that we had our best overall QCE results ever, with two OP1’s, and an OP 2’s and twenty-five percent of our OP Eligible students received an OP 1 to 5.

    These results follow on from the results in 2017 in which Freshwater Christian College also received two OP 1’s and two OP 2’s with more than 50% of eligible students receiving an OP of between 1 – 10.

    These are truly phenomenal results and underline the College’s commitment to academic success for all students.

    We take this opportunity to thank last year’s Year 12 students, their parents and the teaching/non-teaching staff who supported and went the ‘extra miles’ to ensure that every student experienced success relative to their individual area of gifting and talent.

    The College continues to develop its resource base; this year we are truly blessed to be introducing the new $2.3million Hector Costello Innovation Centre, fitted with a range of new engineering and wood manufacturing machinery, 3D printers, laser cutters and robotics technology.

    This Centre of creativity and innovation will help us to take technology related learning, from Grade 4 to Year 12, to a whole new level. You can view a video of the Innovation Centre by clicking here.
