Impressive modern, state of the art learning facilities are provided at St Rita’s College. The Nano Nagle Centre, housing the Library and the Sr Elvera Science Centre, affords our students flexible learning spaces, integrated technologies and the most up to date of resources the girls need to be inquiring and successful learners.

An abundance of specialist learning areas and general teaching classrooms fulfill the learning mainstays of english, mathematics, science, history, economics and information technology, with the popular learning areas of languages, music and the arts, home economics and film and television equally well-resourced.

We are proud of the sporting facilities for an inner-suburban school. These include the Acqua Rosa Centre with its 25m heated pool; three hard courts providing for tennis, basketball, netball and volleyball; a covered court in the Sr Assumpta O’Flynn Pavillion for all-weather multi-purpose uses; and the Eirene Centre which is a multi-purpose hall and gymnasium.

The arts facilities of St Rita’s boast dedicated music and drama teaching areas with performance rooms, practice rooms for group and individual instrumental lessons and small group rehearsal spaces. Trinity Hall offers performance and learning space for drama and music and is equipped with modern audio visual technology for major performances and film and television studies.

The Eirene Centre, accommodating over 1300 people, is the traditional space used for liturgies, assemblies and significant school events. Ballygriffin, on the top level of the Nano Nagle Centre, provides for large staff meetings and, boasting magnificent views to the North and East, is a popular setting for community functions and gatherings.

The College Chapel sits atop Hogan Place – a large green on which students gather for outdoor House, Year level and community activities, as well as at lunchtimes.

Text Book Hire

A text book hire scheme operates at St Rita’s College. The facility operates for students across all year levels with textbooks required for each subject distributed to students when required. Textbooks are returned at the end of the Term or Semester as required, or if the student leaves the College.

To enable these resources to be accessed by students cost-effectively, the text book hire scheme is funded jointly from a per-student levy payable with the College fees account and the Queensland Government bulk textbook allowance. All textbooks remain the property of St Rita’s College and it is the responsibility of each student to retain the books in good condition. Any loss, damage or late returns may incur a replacement fee.

Stationery and subject workbooks are ordered online through MK Educational Supplies. Families are given lists, order codes and ordering instructions in Term 4 of each year for order placements to be made in time for the new school year.
