The College has four Houses:

MacKillop (Gold)

MacKillop takes its name from a Blessed Mary MacKillop, co-founder of the Sisters of St Joseph.

Lyons (Red)

Lyons takes its name from Joseph Lyons, Australia's only Tasmanian Prime Minister and his wife, Dame Enid Lyons, the first woman member of the Federal parliament.

Dillon (Green)

Dillon is named after Br Patrick Dillon, the first principal of St Brendan's College.

Griffin (Blue)

Griffin takes its name from Fr Griffin, Parish Priest of Devonport in 1960, the year Catholic Education began on the current James Sreet site.


A Head of House coordinates the activities of the whole House and works closely with Class Teachers and students within the respective Houses. They are always available to both parents and students.
