Welcome to St Finbarr's School, Quilpie. My name is Kara Marsh and I am the new principal here.

Being a former student at St Finbarr’s, this is an exciting opportunity for me.

I am a motivated, enthusiastic and compassionate person who is looking forward to bringing a strong sense of joy to the principal role.

Before becoming Principal, I was a classroom teacher at St Finbarr’s and Mary Mackillop College, Highfields and also undertaken APRE, teacher librarian and acting principal duties at St Finbarr’s.

I am looking forward to continuing and building on the excellent standards being achieved in teaching and learning and student and staff well-being currently happening at the school.

I am excited to bring enthusiasm, commitment and joy to the school and to remain faithful to the charisms of Sisters of Joseph.

It is so important to me that we treat others with dignity and encourage the outward expression of our identity through prayer to support reverence and respect and rituals.

Our school has a proud history of being linked closely to our community and I am excited to continue to help nuture those relationships together with you all.

Please contact me if you have any questions and we look forward to welcoming you to the St Finbarr's community. 

Warm regards

Kara Marsh, Principal
St Finbarr’s School
