ST MARY’S COLLEGE EXCITING TIMES AT ST MARY’S Wayne Wood Words by Janie Barton | Photo by Catherine Coombs There is a lot of excitement in the air at St Mary’s Catholic College as new projects get started and dynamic new strategic plans for the future are put in place. The College kicked off the year with the start of the much-anticipated Sports Precinct building works and is refurbishing a number of areas. “I feel privileged to lead St Mary’s at this exciting time in the college’s journey.” College Principal Wayne Wood has a vision to see St Mary’s recognised as a Catholic school that stands to the forefront of schooling opportunities in Far North Queensland. “I see St Mary’s as a leading school in Cairns,” he said. “There’s a lot of excitement around the school. As well as our building program, we have our school musical this year (Cinderella, which runs May 22-26). While we already have academic and music scholarships, this year we’ve also initiated sporting scholarships, which will bring a different dimension to our community. “Our College is a much richer place with all these opportunities. We will be rolling out significant building projects in the next few years as well as deepening our focus across teaching, learning and our Catholic identity, so the next five to 10 years are going to be big. It’s very exciting.” Mr Wood was principal for five years at Good Shepherd College in Mount Isa before joining St Mary’s last year. His qualifications include a Bachelor of Education and a Masters of Theology from University of Newcastle. “I’m just amazed at the quality of our teachers here at St Mary’s,” he said. “What also really impresses me about our staff is how they speak so highly of their students. There is a strong bond between them and their students.” Principal Wood strongly believes in the value of a Catholic education. “A Catholic education is about growing good people- courageous in their will and with soft hearts,” he said. “It’s more than preparing students for a degree or trade. We want them to be good people and are willing to help others.” ST MARY’S CATHOLIC COLLEGE 53 Anderson Road, Woree Ph: 40444200 CityLife 27 Magazine
