As a part of Catholic Education within the Diocese of Rockhampton, Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School welcomes all who seek the values of a Catholic Education.
Situated beside the local Parish Church in the city-centre of Gladstone, we provide co-education for approximately 280 students in Prep to Year Six. Established in 1902, we are proud of our history and the many who have added to its chapters.
We value the community of Star of the Sea and all they contribute towards creating a safe and supportive learning environment for our students. We believe that children learn by doing and classrooms should be full of investigation and challenge, with students encouraged to be actively involved and responsible for their learning. We seek to provide an education that caters for the needs of the whole child – nurturing, not only their academic qualities, but also their physical, social, emotional and spiritual development as well.
Most importantly, we believe that Jesus Christ is the inspiration and model for all we do at Star of the Sea and we strive to Make Jesus Real for our students and their families and, in doing so, to help each person shine their light as our school motto calls us to.
This website serves to outline some of the many processes, procedures and routines that occur at Star of the Sea School. All enquiries are very welcome.

Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School acknowledges the Bailai, Gurang, Gooreng Gooreng and Bunda peoples, the traditional owners of this land. They have walked on and cared for these lands for thousands of years.
We acknowledge and show respect to the elders, past, present and future and their relationship to this country.
We commit to the ongoing journey of reconciliation, for we too are one in land, one in spirit, one in faith, united in God's love.
