St Colman's School is situated approximately 88km south of the city of Townsville in the town of Home Hill. The school opened in 1927 and was operated by the Sisters of Mercy until 1967 when it became a systemic school operated by the Townsville Catholic Education Office.
Home Hill, with a population of approximately 3000, is part of the Burdekin Shire, the largest sugar cane producing area in Australia. We boast the nation's largest water development project - the Burdekin Dam, which ensures a plentiful supply of water to the district.
The school is fully air-conditioned to keep students and staff comfortable. A recent refurbishment of the school means all classrooms and the interior of the buildings are now light, cool and spacious.
As a Catholic School, our focus is the spiritual, physical, emotional and academic development of the child within a school community that experiences and expresses its Catholic faith. The school undertakes a supporting role for parents as the primary educators of their children.
