Our History

‚ÄčIn 2004 past pupils of our founding schools - the Christian Brothers College for Boys (established in 1904) and the Sisters of Mercy High School for Girls (established in 1916) held a reunion and gathering to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the arrival of the Sisters of Mercy in Gympie and the 100th Anniversary of the arrival of the Christian Brothers in Gympie.

The Chairman of the Reunion Committee was Mr Nev Bermingham and he and his committee created the book linked below -
