Secondary School

“Our students have the opportunity to mix and forge friendships with people from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures. I truly believe these qualities make for a richer and more rewarding experience for students in their secondary school years.”

We have a proven record of academic excellence with one of the finest records in Cairns for our graduating seniors being accepted into the tertiary course of their choice. Our students are prepared for University Tertiary Entrance and other study options including TAFE and Workplace Traineeships.


“I started my journey at Peace as a shy 12-year-old who didn’t quite know what to expect. I was worried about fitting in, but I didn't need to be. The Peace community welcomed me with open arms. Teachers were always willing to make time for my questions and I found close friends amongst my peers. I realised that Peace was not just a school, but a family who support each other through the highs and the lows; a family who are committed to enabling each student to thrive. As I begin the next chapter of my life, attending JCU to complete a degree in Nursing and Midwifery, it grieves me to say goodbye to my friends and teachers. However, I will be forever grateful that I was given the opportunity to be a part of the Peace family.”
