About our School

St Andrew's Catholic College is a Catholic, co-educational College, situated on a picturesque 25 ha site located in the Redlynch Valley. The College is part of the Northern Beaches Parish with Father Neil Muir as the Parish Priest. The College opened in 2001 with 71 enrolments and a small staff but has grown today to an enrolment close to 1680 students and over 200 staff. Mrs Lauretta Graham, the founding Principal of the College guided and shaped the College for the first eleven years - 2001 - 2011. The College is organised into three sectors, all on the one site - Junior Years (Prep to Year 5); Middle Years (Year 6 to Year 9); and, Senior Years (Year 10 to Year 12). In the Junior Years there are four classes per year level. In the Middle Years there are four classes in Year 6 and six classes in Years 7 to Year 9. In the Senior Years there are six Homeform classes in each year level.

From the outset in 2001, it was the hope of all people concerned with the development of the College that it is seen as a shared resource for the community, with a welcome for all people interested in continuing to seek faith development, spirituality, knowledge and recreation. This concept is at the heart of the ongoing vision for St Andrew's Catholic College, Redlynch Valley.

Today, St Andrew's is a College with a student-centred focus, in genuine partnership with families. We believe in giving girls and boys both a purpose and an identity through challenging them to become active, innovative, responsible citizens and we believe that students can best develop these essential skills in an outstanding learning environment which is present at the College. St Andrew's truly is a College offering opportunities to all members of the community through life-giving relationships and a commitment to bring the Gospel values to life every day.

In the period of consolidation, the College has grown in stature - academically, spiritually, culturally, vocationally and on the sporting field.

Characteristics of Student Body

Students travel to St Andrew's Catholic College each day from as far afield as Pt Douglas to the north, Gordonvale to south and Kuranda to the west.  The primary catchment for students embraces the inner and western suburbs of Cairns, extending to all of the northern beaches.

Cultural Diversity

St Andrew's Catholic College is a culturally diverse school that values inclusivity. Our student population and its wider community reflect the latest (2016) census data that shows nearly half (49 per cent) of Australians had either been born overseas or one or both parents had been born overseas.
203 students were born outside of Australia.
307 students had both their mother and father born outside of Australia.
St Andrew's is a proud supporter of the AFL Cape York Foundation program. This program provides educational, employment and training opportunities for young indigenous people form Far North Queensland's remote communities in a culturally appropriate, safe and secure residential environment.

As a partner school, the College looks forward to expanding our involvement and enrolments with the girls boarding house scheduled for opening in January 2019.

Student Enrolments and Statistics
Enrolments throughout 2018 averaged 1686 students over three sectors.
Junior Years    (Prep to Year 5)              654
Middle Years   (Year 6 to Year 9)          612
Senior Years    (Year 10 to Year 12)      420
247  New students were welcomed into the College over the full school year.
125  Students were placed on Waiting Lists or remained listed from the previous year. 
221 Additional applications were processed and subsequently archived. This large number of archived applications incorporated those withdrawn by parents, declined offers of enrolment by parents, application's declined by the principal or for lack of requested supporting documentation.
129 Student departure notifications were processed for the full year (Includes 77 end of year departures). This equates to 7.6% of the student population and consistent with previous years and the transient nature of the Cairns region.

International Enrolments and Student Exchange Program
Students, Staff and the wider College community benefit from the enrolment of International Students and participation in student exchanges.  Throughout 2018 St Andrew's hosted students through our sister schools and exchange partners from Japan, China and Italy.

How non-attendance is managed by the school

Parents are encouraged to contact the school on the day that a student is absent. Various communication channels are available for parents to contact the school regarding student absence:

  • Dedicated email address
  • Telephone Absentee Line
  • STACC Mobile Telephone App
  • Parent Portal

If students are absent without notification, parents are contacted on that day. If there is a pattern of non-attendance developing, parents are contacted and an interview is requested. A non-attendance pattern is likely to cause a disruption to the student's learning.

Parents and carers are asked to request leave for their child from the College Principal if the leave period coincides with the beginning or end of each term; is for greater than five days in duration; and / or impacts on any block examination / assessment periods.
