As Principal of St Ursula’s College Yeppoon, I welcome you to our website. Each page provides a snapshot of how we support our students to Live, Love, Learn and Lead through the values of the Presentation Sisters.
St Ursula’s College, Yeppoon, was founded in 1918 by the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (PBVM) and is a Ministry of Mercy Partners. As an independent Catholic Day and Boarding Secondary College, St Ursula’s offers an education for young women of the future based on gospel values and Nano Nagle’s vision, with a particular commitment to:
The promotion of, and education for, justice;
The development of leadership;
Encouraging students to strive towards reaching their potential; and
Preparing students to participate fully and responsibly in society.
This vision sees an emphasis on an educational environment where the gospel values are experienced both in daily living and through authentic and engaging learning experiences, developing critical and future-focussed learners.
At St Ursula’s College, we offer girls in Years 7-12 a holistic, comprehensive, faith-filled Secondary education encompassing academic and vocational pathways to tertiary study and /or employment. We celebrate every student and their unique abilities; this dynamic culture produces strong, confident young women, capable of forging a positive path for themselves by embracing the College motto of “Perfice Gressus Meos” (Perfect My Steps).
Our Boarding House, Yumba-Gy-You, is located on campus, nestled in the foothills of the Yeppoon Central Business District, within walking distance to the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Yeppoon has a population of 18,100 residents and is a safe and friendly close-knit community on the Capricorn Coast in tropical Queensland.
As you navigate this website and our resources, we trust that you will be equipped to make the best choice for your daughter’s future; however, if we can be of further assistance do not hesitate to contact the College.
