Relationships which can provide a home away from home... - Angus McDonald

More than 1500 young men from Years five to 12, including more than 280 boarders, call Nudgee College their school.

Amongst the student cohort you will find writers, athletes, artists, performers, science enthusiasts, maths fanatics, leaders, builders, dreamers, all-rounders, and everything in between.

On a daily basis students are taught, cared for and challenged by teachers who want to bring out the best in all of their students – they want to help them find their strengths.

The holistic education, personal development and well-being of each student is a key focus of the college.

As 2018 college captain Angus McDonald said, the college’s real success lies in the relationships that the boys build while they are at school.

“Relationships which can provide a home away from home, a happy place to learn, and a sense of community that lasts a lifetime,” he said.

“The students come from every path of life, and it is this diversity that allows us to learn so much from each other. Through the personal narratives we share, we can catch glimpses of life in Far North Queensland, out west, Papua New Guinea, and indeed, all corners of the globe.”

The support by staff for the boys’ interests and strengths is complimented by the world-class facilities across the 136 hectare campus that are available to the students.

From 15 playing fields, to an Olympic-standard athletics track, two heated swimming pools, state-of-the-art music and art studios, a 400-seat auditorium, and an onsite agricultural centre, students are always able to access high quality facilities to help them nurture and develop their talents and strengths.

Nudgee College is offering academic scholarships for students entering the college from Years seven to 11 in 2020 who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement based on the results of the ACER Scholarship Examination and exhibit qualities commensurate with the College's motto, Signum Fidei – a Sign of Faith.

Academic scholarships are awarded to students who are considered to have exceptional academic ability and potential. Bush Boarding Bursaries are also available for new students entering Years seven to 10 in 2019.
