Open, informative and transparent is a striong feature or the boarding experience for our families. Parents are encouraged to stay in close contact with your son’s boarding coordinator. Every week the Boarding Bugle Newsletter is sent to all families providing a window into the happenings within the boarding school with a lot of photos and all the relevant news. We also encourage families to stay in touch by accessing:

  • Facebook:
  • MCA App / Boarding / Galleries: for updates and boarding photos
  • Update Emails from residence coordinators which feature the key messages boys are receiving as well as moments of acknowledgement and celebration. These updates are made available every few weeks
  • Virtual Parent Meetings are held on a needs basis

End of Term Transport

Marist College Ashgrove provides transfer services to our students at the end of each term to meet flight, train and bus services out of Brisbane. We also offer an end of term bus to Goondiwindi, stopping at Toowoomba, Dalby and Moonie.

This service extends to sisters of our boarders also in Brisbane at boarding school, who are very welcome to join the group.
