Chanel College, Gladstone

Chanel College is a Catholic co-educational college in Gladstone, Queensland, Australia. Founded in 1966 by the Sisters of Mercy, the school was originally located at Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School, but it soon moved to 11 Paterson Street as Stella Maris College. The girls were educated at Stella Maris College and the boys at Chanel College, by the Marist Brothers in 1968.

The college has also been linked with accusations of child sexual abuse. This is in relation to Brother John Maguire who was principal at the school between 1975 and 1977. Brother Maguire has been convicted for child sexual abuse while he was at St Joseph’s in Hunters Hill, Sydney. While the Marist Brothers had received no allegation against Br Maguire relating to his period at Gladstone Catholic High School, there are concerns about his time in Gladstone as some former students are starting to speak out about his time there.

We invite former students, teachers and parents to contact us to tell us confidentially what information they may have, and we will explain what options are available to help with these cases.
