2022 Celebrations

In 2022, our College celebrates 140 years of Catholic education in Charters Towers, with 140 years at St Mary’s and 120 years at the Mt Carmel campus. We are excited to celebrate our strengths and achievements, proudly reflecting on all those who have come before us and are privileged to be a part of the past, present and future story of Catholic education in Charters Towers.

We look forward to sharing, connecting and celebrating with each of you as we mark this significant milestone in the life of our College community.

Past and present staff, students and families are warmly invited to join us from 3-5 June 2022 as we celebrate our story together.
