Quotes about St Brendan-Shaw College

I was most impressed with not only the academic quality of St Brendan-Shaw College, but with the exceptional pastoral care which was provided to the students. The students take pride in their school and in each other, and this has created a wonderful community of learners, teachers and staff.
Kind regards, Ceri Davies


I just had a very pleasant experience meeting and chatting with some of your students at the White Ribbon event in the Devonport Mall. The picture attached is currently on MP Roger Jaensch's facebook which shows some of the SBSC students. A very friendly and articulate group and their presence at the event was acknowledged and noticeable. I am also aware that SBSC highlighted the White Ribbon cause at school recently. Congratulations for raising the awareness and spreading the word regarding this social issue.

I am writing to you to express my gratitude and appreciation to the College for allowing your Sports Leaders to be involved in Cricket Tasmania's MILO T20 Blast School Cups in Latrobe & Devonport this week. The students were absolutely fabulous in the way they conducted themselves and represented the school. They listened well to instructions, actively engaged with the students and contributed greatly to the excitement and atmosphere of the days. A big thankyou to Jo, Steve & Adam for organising the students and making sure they were ready to go.
I hope we can continue our strong partnership together in the future and once again thank you for the support of our programs within the local schools and community.
Kind Regards, Adam Drinkwell (Regional Cricket Manager - North West)


Hi Adam, I just want to say thank you to you and SBSC for letting me coach a team I really enjoyed it and the boys were great all weekend its a credit to your school having such well behaved students sorry we didn't get over the line but 4 wins and 1 loss was a good effort and all boys got good court time in saying that there were 2 boys on the Smithton team that didn't get on at all in the final would love to help out next year if needed keep me in mind, again thank you and the students for the weekend.
Cheers Richard Hugen


Just wanted to provide you with some feedback from today. Tim was very appreciative of our support, and wishes to say a big thank you. The Ambulace private group were there and 2 of them that spoke to me stated how exceptional our students were. One stated that he had been assisting with these things for years, and this group was by far the best he had seen.
