St Brendan's is a co-educational primary school offering Catholic education for children in the Northern Beaches of Mackay. Officially opened in 2015, our school has continued to grow annually to have two classes in each year level. 

We offer a holistic approach to schooling where children, in partnership with their parents, are nurtured, valued, respected and encouraged to reach their potential.

We offer:
~ State of the art facilities
~ Quality educational experiences

The children in both Year 1 classes made some ‘get well soon’ cards in class during Catholic Education Week.  Last Wednesday a group of Year 1 children had the opportunity to visit the Mackay Base Hospital to give out their cards to some of the sick patients.  The patients were very grateful for their cards.  It was lovely to see that the children had brightened their day.

Woolworths Earn and LearnWOOLWORTHS EARN & LEARN
This year St Brendan’s will be participating in the Woolworths Earn and Learn Program. Through this program we will be able to get new educational resources for our school and all we need you to do is shop for your groceries at Woolworths. Until Tuesday 19th September, we are collecting Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers.

You will get one Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker for every $10 spent (excluding liquor, tobacco and gift cards). Place the Woolworths Earn and Learn Sticker onto a Woolworths Earn and Learn Sticker Sheet and when it’s complete, the Sticker Sheet can be dropped into the Collection Box here at the School Office or our local Woolworths. At the end of the promotion, we’ll be able to get some great new equipment. The range is extensive and offers lots of items ideal for our students – including resources for Maths, English, Science and some fantastic fun supplies for Arts & Craft, Sport and for our library. If you’d like to know more, visit woolworths.com.au/earnandlearn.
