Allan Guihot, Principal


St Columba Anglican School is an independent, co-educational school situated in Port Macquarie on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, for students from Kindergarten to Year 12.

Since its establishment in 2002, St Columba has built a reputation for academic excellence, pastoral care of students and for developing the whole child. At St Columba we believe that education is about recognising and realising a student’s potential and providing a safe community in which to grow.

The School’s motto Faith, Hope, Truth, Love is foundational to the life of the School.

Our key points of difference

St Columba Anglican School is unapologetic in its desire to offer its students the very best education possible. We aim to offer every student the very best educational experience – as good or better than any other school in the region or the state.

Single campus, integrated schooling.

The whole of a SCAS student’s school life is on one campus, from Preschool to Year 12. Our single campus builds familiarity and confidence, ensuring seamless transitions between years.

An authentic commitment to wellbeing and pastoral care.

At St Columba, student wellbeing is central to the mission of our school. Therefore, we provide our students with every opportunity to cultivate positive relationships, community connection and personal development.

Striving for excellence

We are committed to achieving academic excellence by nurturing the development of each student’s talents and creating confident and well-rounded learners.

Family-focused, community-minded.

Our smaller size and regional location offer a real strength in community spirit: SCAS staff become close to family as well as students, and our family-focused approach helps build strong bonds.
