Marist Regional College Burnie, TASMANIA

Marist Regional College was founded in 1972. It grew from the amalgamation of Stella Maris Regional Girls’ College, run by the Sisters of Mercy, and Marist College run by the Marist Fathers.

The Marist Fathers and the Sisters of Mercy combined their work in Catholic secondary education in Burnie through their commitment to Marist Regional College. The College is an independent co-educational Catholic secondary school catering for young people from Year 7 to Year 12 and enjoys an excellent reputation as a result of achievements in academic, vocational and co-curricular endeavours. The College also enjoys exceptional facilities on a site covering more than 17 hectares overlooking Bass Strait. Located centrally in Burnie, servicing the north-west coast of Tasmania. 

The College is focused on personal excellence and works with students and their families to discern their unique and varied pathways, assisting them to achieve their potential in whatever field they choose. Graduates of Marist excel in a wide variety of fields including tertiary studies, apprenticeships and direct employment.

Families who support the values of the College and seek a community based on hospitality, respect, justice, compassion and responsibility are welcomed. Marist is a place where young people grow with confidence and purpose, secure in the knowledge that they will be known, safe and valued members of the community.

The College is committed to a whole community approach to education whereby families are rightfully held as a cornerstone for educational achievement and encourage and foster opportunities for parental engagement and know that this partnership is integral to the College’s ongoing success in all fields.
