Welcome to the new school year at St Columba College.
Our theme for 2024 is the year of Striving for Excellence, in the spirit of 2 Chronicles 15:7 which says, “But as for you, be strong and do not give up for your work will be rewarded.’
And what a strong start we have had. Our students have returned with good energy, and our staff are energised, purposeful and already giving them excellent and worthwhile learning opportunities.
