The Marian Catholic School is in the leafy, inner city suburb of Currajong in Townsville. Families are the focus with emphasis on developing the whole child, by providing a careful balance of academic, sporting, cultural and spiritual activities in a welcoming, warm and caring environment. The staff supports a high standard of education and promote equity and social justice for all as part of our mission and outreach. The staff teaches and live the Gospel values and focus on a core curriculum but also foster diverse capabilities of each individual. The school caters for a diverse clientele from the region, the classes from prep to year 7 in two streams. We have a very special Torres Strait Islander Dance Troupe with indigenous and non-indigenous children, all training, performing and learning about the Torres Strait culture through dance and perform at many community events throughout the year. The school is a community of faith, based upon a belief in God and Christian way of life. We believe parents and carers have a vital role to play in their children's lives and we welcome parental involvement in all aspects of school life.
