Message from the Principal


It is with great pleasure and pride that I welcome all who visit the St Francis College website; whether you are a member of the College Community or a new visitor, you are most welcome.​

Whilst we enjoy a spacious campus, the heart of St Francis College is our community. At SFC we strive to provide a learning environment that celebrates the diversity and giftedness of all within our community. SFC celebrates the journey of children becoming fine young men and women.

In partnership with you, we aim to develop young adults who are poised to make a significant positive difference in their world. We share your aspiration, as parents, for our young people to grow as happy, healthy and well-rounded individuals.

The faith and mission of the College provide the framework for our student well​being and learning and teaching programs. These programs enable us to foster a passion for lifelong learning for the holistic development of each student.

The staff are passionate and committed to creating the best possible learning environment and future opportunities for your children, as well as a strong sense of belonging for students and their families. I warmly invite you to visit and see first-hand the SFC difference.

It is no secret that happy, balanced children thrive at school and in life. We provide a broad range of opportunities to allow children to develop, articulate and live up to a set of beliefs that will serve them invaluably in the future.

Choosing the right school is an important family decision. While this website captures much of the atmosphere and ethos of St Francis College and will certainly give you valuable information about the breadth and diversity of our College Programs and Co-Curricular opportunities, I also invite and encourage you to come along to one of our regular tours to experience the College for yourself. For those interested in touring the College, or exploring whether student vacancies exist, may I encourage you to contact our College Registrar.

Thank you for your interest in St Francis College. I look forward to meeting you in the future.​

Mr John Marinucci | Principal
