St Gerard Majella is the school of choice for many parents because:
- St Gerard’s has earned a reputation in the Cairns region as a school with strong academic achievement as well as supporting the development of the whole child, socially and emotionally, physically and spiritually.
- Parents acknowledge the family friendly focus of the school with student numbers around 400, enabling a personal touch and small community feel.
- Staff provide authentic learning experiences that incorporate digital technologies via our 1 to 1 device initiative in Years 3-6 and Prep – Year 2 classes have access to iPads.
- St Gerard Majella provides differentiated learning opportunities for all students regardless of cultural background or abilities and values inclusion of all.
In the context of the wider Catholic community and in partnership with parents and other members of the community, our school provides students, as they grow and develop, with a high quality education which will equip them with knowledge, skills, personal attributes and the spiritual foundations needed to become well-rounded, active participants in society.
