We play to their strengths
Some of the boys who attend St Joseph’s Nudgee College have a keen interest and aptitude for the sciences, while others might find they’re excited by the prospect of performing. Then there are the boys who thrive on the sporting field, as well as those who can create magic with a paintbrush. You will also find boys whose love of words drives them to write eloquent poems, stories, essays and speeches, and those with a mind for numbers who will happily power through equation after equation. Of course, there are also all-rounders who like to throw themselves into many different activities, and those who are still searching for their calling and would like to try a bit of everything to find it. With the variety of high quality facilities across a spacious 136 hectare campus, as well as a dedicated and passionate team of staff, your son will find his strength.
After the College’s Library found a new home in the DJ Hanly Learning Centre in 2015, the old Library building was redeveloped into a modern Art and Music precinct. The new Cleary Building for Music and Art completed the College’s extensive building program over the past several years, which included the Learning Centre, Boarding Village, Trade Training Centre, Ed’s Shed, and Agricultural Centre.
The boarding community is a valued and thriving facet of Nudgee College, with plenty of fantastic opportunities to further all aspects of a student’s development. With more than 300 students and 50 staff living on campus, students are given the opportunity to live, study and play with boarders from all over Australia, the South Pacific and beyond, many of whom they will form genuine friendships with that will last a lifetime.
As a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) College, student learning has been enhanced and improved through the integration of technology, while explicitly instructing students on how to be critical consumers and producers of information; to be responsible digital citizens.
The College is a member of the Queensland Greater Public Schools (GPS) Association and more than holds its own in competition with the other eight GPS schools. The GPS Association of Queensland Incorporated aims to provide a healthy and social opportunity for large numbers of boys to take part in a wide range of sporting and cultural activities. These include Cricket, Debating, Rowing, Swimming, Volleyball, Cross Country (Athletics), Football, Tennis, Basketball, Chess, Rugby and Track and Field (Athletics).
