St Ursula's College, Yeppoon
St Ursula's College Ltd is a Catholic boarding and day school located near the ocean, 40 kilometres from Rockhampton. It offers secondary education to girls and young women.
History of the ministry
St Ursula’s was established by the Presentation Sisters in 1917, seventeen years after the first Queensland Presentation Convent was founded in Longreach. The school soon developed a reputation not only for its high level of academic achievement but also for its cultural pursuits.
Today, St Ursula’s offers a wide range of academic and vocational subjects and shares campus facilities with nearby St Brendan’s College. Students are afforded the opportunity to be involved in exceptional curricular and co-curricular opportunities bringing the school motto “Perfect my steps” into play as they also participate in and work for social justice in the wider community.
The Queensland Presentation Congregation transferred governance of St Ursula's College to Mercy Partners in June 2014.
