St Laurence’s College is a Catholic school for boys in the Archdiocese of Brisbane conducted in the tradition of Edmund Rice. The school accepts students from Year 5 to Year 12, drawing from a wide area of Brisbane. The total enrolment of the school is almost 1800 boys.
As a College conducted in the Edmund Rice tradition, we offer a distinctive educational philosophy. This philosophy is based on a commitment to education as liberation. Blessed Edmund Rice, the founder of the Christian Brothers, attempted to change the system to assist those in need, to protect the weak and to restore social justice. His challenge to us today is to act justly and to live in right relationship with God, ourselves, our neighbour and indeed with all of creation. The College attempts to have the values of the Gospel and the message of Jesus pervade all that happens.
On 2015 St Laurence’s College is celebrating its Centenary year. A full list of these celebrations can be found on the College website.
