Ryan Catholic College Townsville

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Ryan Catholic College website. Our College is situated in the Townsville suburb of Kirwan.

We provide a Catholic education for both boys and girls from Prep to Year 12 on two campuses (Prep to Year 4 and Years 5 to 12). Our students are offered a diverse curriculum in modern, well-equipped facilities.

Ryan Catholic College was established in 1979 and has as its foundational story as the well-known "Journey to Emmaus" story from the Gospel of Luke. The theme of "journey" is one that is embraced by the College and is a fine metaphor for portraying the growth that all people experience in developing their spirituality, intellect, physical and social capabilities and wisdom.

Although the College is relatively young, it has an enviable reputation for providing an education which results in graduates who are well rounded young people. Academic excellence is sought and achieved, yet there is a broad education provided so that all who seek our values find a suitable pathway to attaining their goals.

The staff members at Ryan Catholic College have a deep commitment to providing a meaningful and challenging education within a Catholic environment to the young people of Townsville.

We have high expectations of our students in their relationships with one another and staff. Respect and good manners are cornerstones of these standards. Students are expected to take pride in wearing their uniform well and have an appearance which is neat and tidy.

I invite you to explore the various attributes of our College. If there is more you would like to find out, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the College through the contacts made available in these pages.
