A Message from the Principal

St Brendan-Shaw College is a Catholic, co-educational, secondary school welcoming students from the North West region centred on Devonport. As a school that caters for Year 7 through to Year 12 studies, we are able to provide a seamless academic transition across the full spectrum of secondary education while encouraging social and leadership development.

Together with; Catholic Primary Schools, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School, Sacred Heart Catholic School, St Patrick's Catholic School and Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Primary School, we offer a K-12 Catholic education.

Our vision is to be a vibrant centre of learning, focused on the holistic development of the person, and our mission is encapsulated by the gospel message that 'Christ has come so that we may have life and have it to the full' (Jn 10:10).

Our core values of Caritas (Christian love), Community, Learning, Openness and Responsibility, together with our Catholic heritage, guide and direct us, and the pastoral care of our students is a high priority.

We are proud of our record of academic success, not only of those of our students who achieve excellent tertiary entrance scores, but also of those students who achieve above what one would expect, at whatever level this may be.

We have established strong industry partnerships as part of our vocational education and training program and our offering of extra-curricular activities assists in achieving our vision and fulfilling our mission.

We look to work in partnership with families to achieve positive outcomes for our College community.

Mr Frank Pisano
