CARMEL College is calling on former students to go back to school – just for one night.
The college is celebrating its 25th anniversary and is calling on anyone who attended the college to join them on October 13.
Carmel College opened its doors on Ziegenfusz Road, Thornlands in 1993 with 80 students and has grown to nearly 1140 this year.
Foundation principal Faye Conley saw the school grow from its infancy until her retirement in 2006.
“At the time (the school was proposed), the Redlands didn’t have a Catholic secondary school; the population was soaring,” Mrs Conley said.
“The support was enormous, and while we only started off with a few buildings, we were able to do it.”
Current College principal Brian Eastaughffe said he is very proud of the caring community of Carmel College.
“I am most proud of the way our students contribute to the caring culture of Carmel College,” he said.
“Through upholding the College’s four pillars of respect, resilience, diligence and positive relationships, it is clear to see the strong relationships between all students.
“These bonds, and their sense of community, make Carmel College a special place to be.”
Guests from the Archdiocese of Brisbane, Brisbane Catholic Education and members of the past and present College community are invited to commemorate the milestone.
