Message from the Principalhttp://www.siena.qld.edu.au/about-us/Pages/Message-from-the-Principal.aspxMessage from the Principal<p class="ms-rteElement-P"><img class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="Michael-McCarthy.jpg" src="/about-us/PublishingImages/Michael-McCarthy.jpg" style="height:150px;width:150px;margin:5px 10px;" /></p> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">Siena Catholic College was established in 1997 and soon built a reputation for excellent Catholic education. The College continues to be considered among the best Secondary schools on the Sunshine Coast and beyond, and is in high demand by parents and carers across the region. </p> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">Siena Catholic College seeks to develop the whole person - the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional – so that each student can realise their God-given potential. All members of our school community offer talents, gifts and skills bestowed upon them by God, to be used in the service of the Church in spreading the Good News: that Jesus lived, died and rose again so that we all may have eternal life. The College is unwaveringly committed to a Catholic-Christian philosophy of education which defines all that we do in College life, and is based firmly in the Gospel values of love for one another, compassion and mercy. </p> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">Selecting a Secondary school for your child is an important and, at times, difficult decision. This website provides you with a summary of all that the College offers, and you are encouraged to enquire to the College should you seek further information. I encourage you to ask questions of the local community, members of our school, and our Parish Priests to inform yourself thoroughly about Siena Catholic College. I can assure you our claims to excellence and the unswerving commitment to our students will be supported by these reliable sources of information. </p> <p class="ms-rteElement-P"><strong>Dr Michael McCarthy </strong><br>Principal</p>

ANZAC Day Honour Marchhttp://www.siena.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/ANZAC-Day-2018.aspxANZAC Day Honour March<p>​​​​</p><p>​ANZAC Day is one of Australia's most important national commemorative occasions and this year's event​ was yet another example of the Siena spirit!  Buderim Village was a 'sea of Siena' as it were at the memorial march with 300 + students and staff taking part in the ANZAC Day Honour March along side our community of schools, veterans and dignitaries. The Siena Ban​d did a stella job entertaining the bystanders and marchers.<br></p><p>We offer our thanks to the parents and carers who supported their child/ren in attending the memorial march and inculcating the kinds of attitudes and dispositions which propel our students into fully-fledged membership of this community. Thank to all those students who gave their time for something greater than themselves.​ It is a strong testament to the important place the College community holds in the hearts and minds of students. </p><p><img alt="Anzac Day March (1).JPG" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Anzac%20Day%20March%20(1).JPG" style="margin:5px;width:367px;height:310px;" /><img alt="Anzac Day March (2).JPG" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Anzac%20Day%20March%20(2).JPG" style="margin:5px;width:270px;height:310px;" /><img alt="Anzac Day March (7).JPG" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Anzac%20Day%20March%20(7).JPG" style="margin:5px;width:202px;height:155px;" /><img alt="Anzac Day March (8).JPG" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Anzac%20Day%20March%20(8).JPG" style="margin:5px;width:234px;height:155px;" /><img alt="Anzac Day March (5).JPG" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Anzac%20Day%20March%20(5).JPG" style="margin:5px;width:186px;height:155px;" /><br> <img alt="Anzac Day March Band (1).JPG" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Anzac%20Day%20March%20Band%20(1).JPG" style="margin:5px;width:656px;" /></p><p><br> </p><p><br> </p>
