ignificance of 'Good Counsel'

'Good Counsel' is a biblical reference to the instruction Mary gave to servants at the Wedding Feast of Cana:

"His mother said to the servants: 'Do whatever he (Jesus) tells you. John 2:5"' [cite web|url= |title=Boston Catholic Journal |accessdate=2007-06-12] [cite web|url= |title=ESV Bible Online|accessdate=2007-06-12]

The school envisions that this advice be acted upon by members of the school community.

It should be noted however that the school contains and accepts students and teachers from a substantially diverse range of religious and socio-economic backgrounds. [cite web|url= |title=Catholic Diocese of Cairns: Good Counsel College |accessdate=2007-06-12]


Good Counsel College was established in 1975 as a result of the fusion of two separate single sex education institutes: The Sacred Heart Girls School conducted by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan and the Marist Brothers' Boys' School. Initially the school was organized catering only to students in years 8 to 10. However under guidance from the schools first principal Mr. Peter Albion the school was quickly established as an academic institute offering a full secondary education.

In recent years the school has undergone significant expansion both in terms of enrollments and infrastructure, having trebled the number of enrollments since its inception in 1975. [cite web|url= |title=Good Counsel Home Page |accessdate=2007-06-12]
