The Manoora Campus is a small very urban environment in Manoora, located about 5 kilometres from Cairns CBD. Young people at the campus come from as far away as Palm Cove to the north, Gordonvale to the South and Kuranda to the west.

Every young person is welcome at Holy Spirit College no matter what their background. Our only criteria for enrolment is that the young person is disengaged from other educational environments. The present cohort come from a wide range of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.

Young people's voices are important to the college staff and this holds to be very true at Manoora were young people participate in opinion surveys and workshops. The young people are willing to give their honest opions and feedback. 


What we think is working wel for us

We think these things are important to help us learn

Here's were we want to go after College

An a healthy lunch afer all the work

Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.”
John Dewey
