In February 1981 Marist Brother Clarence Cunningham officially opened John Therry Catholic College to cater for the growing demand from the Campbelltown region, and it continues its links with the Marist community today.

The co-educational college caters for students from years 7 to 12 and offers a broad curriculum with a wide range of elective subjects in all fields.

There are currently around 1000 students enrolled at the college and the demand for places continues to grow.

All students study Catholic Studies and there is a comprehensive range of ATAR subjects, including extension courses, as well as VET options to ensure all students can explore their passions and interests.

Assistant principal Brad McAllister said John Therry has a strong reputation for its sporting prowess and aims to provide a wide range of opportunities for students to explore their strengths.

"The college has a history of students that have gone on to represent their chosen sport at the highest level," Mr McAllister said.

"Recent successes include Olympic triathlete Natalie Van Coevorden and Wests Tigers League player David Nofoaluma."

Mr McAllister said John Therry has also seen significant growth in student achievement over recent years, including NAPLAN and HSC results.

"The college's Creative and Performing Arts program is widely recognised and students are regularly nominated for Art Express (Visual Arts) and OnStage (Drama) programs at the HSC level," he said.

"Our 2018 school captain Luke Hodge has recently been accepted into the New York Conservatory For Dramatic Arts on scholarship."

Mr McAllister said students and teachers at the college look forward to celebrating Education Week each year.

"It acknowledges the significant role education plays in improving the lives of all people, and the wonderful schools, teachers and students we have in Australia," he said.

John Therry Catholic College is at 80B Demetrius Road, Rosemeadow. For more information you can phone 4645 8100 or visit their website by going to jtccdow.catholic.edu.au.
