St Stephen's Catholic College
St Stephen's Catholic College, (also known as "St Stephen's"), is a Catholic co-educational high school in Mareeba, Queensland, Australia.
St Stephen's is a secondary school located in Mareeba, approximately 60 km west of Cairns. Founded under much public consultation in 2006, St Stephen's was developed to provide the community of Mareeba with a local high school. Although originally planned as a co-institutional arrangement with Education Queensland in 1998, the Diocesan Education Board of Governance gave its approval for the establishment of a Catholic secondary college in 2002. By the end of 2004 all approval had been gained, and by Feb 2005 an interim College Board was formed. By the next month the Foundation Principal, Mr. Gerard Simon, was appointed, and by April the name St Stephen's was chosen.
The College now boasts three computer laboratories, a 400m running track, a sports area, a selve serve tuckshop, four science laboratories, a Trade training centre and a Performing Arts Centre. The school has cricket, soccer, rugby league, netball and basketball facilities.
