The Saints Advantage

Saints Residents Courtesy Car

Saints Catholic College provides a full-service vehicle (fuel, insurance, roadside assist etc) for residents to use for their personal needs whilst at college.

The car is currently a Holden Cruze Hatchback with a beautiful leather interior. The car has multiple recording cameras and a GPS unit and can be used by valid driver's license holding residents to enjoy Townsville.

Whether it's a shopping trip, a trip to the beach, or even picking up parents from the airport, they simply sign out the vehicle and sign it back in when they return.

Streaming TV Services

We have all of these streaming services on every common room TV on college.

That's right, watch your favourite shows and select from a long list of movies on our huge 75" HDTV's to ensure your down time is most definitely not down.

We will also have Main Event on Kayo Sports in the Bongo Bar at least once a month for those boxing, UFC and WWE fans.

Just see your Student Association Bongo Rep to see what event they have chosen for the month, or maybe do some convincing to get the specific event you want ;o)

Not forgetting of course, we still have a PS4 and PlayStation Plus on every common room TV.

So, if you are more about getting your game on over movie time, we've got you covered.

Academic Mentoring Program, Counselling Services & Pastoral Care Support

At Saints we try to ensure the smooth transition form Secondary Education to University Studies, which can be a very different and daunting change for some new Residents. All First Year residents receive at no cost an Academic Mentor to do group or in some cases one on one study assistance. It is our goal to assist you (your child) to not only have an amazing social experience, but also keep on track academically. If you (your child) are ever struggling in a subject we can also provide a personal tutor at no cost.

We also have on site staff to assist with pastoral, emotional and mental health assistance. Whether it is the stress of exams, relationship issues, difficulty fitting in or adjusting to college life or just plain home sickness, we have professional staff on-site to assist you through the tough times and cheer you on during the good times. We also have access to professional Counselling Services which residents upon request can have multiple sessions at no cost (either face to face or via Zoom). All interactions are strictly confidential with the resident and remain that way unless otherwise instructed by the resident. Your privacy and respect is paramount to us.
