Welcome to Red Bend Catholic College


Irish qualifications are recognised in every state and territory of Australia

Red Bend Catholic College is committed to bringing Irish teachers to our school, and we have a comprehensive process to assist with sponsorship and working holiday visa options.

In addition, if a person is a citizen of the Republic of Ireland and under the age of 35, they can come to Australia and teach on a working holiday visa, and then while working, we can then start the process of applying for the sponsorship visa.

Why Red Bend Catholic College?

Our college inspires an inclusive and engaging Catholic education in the Marist tradition, nurturing Christians who are audacious, resilient and ethically informed global citizens. We have a strong family spirit that invigorates our community, where each member feels valued and has a sense of belonging and connection.

We offer competitive remuneration packages and emigrants can expect ongoing professional development and training, in state-of-the-art teaching facilities that provide a modern and technologically advanced learning environment for students.

Why Forbes?

Situated on the Newell Highway, Forbes is halfway between Melbourne and Brisbane, and only a few hours’ drive from Sydney, Canberra - Australia’s capital - and the Snowy Mountains. It provides the perfect destination to explore all of the great outdoors and everything Australia’s cities has to offer, while enjoying an enriching career.

The town of Forbes is small enough to offer an incredible community, but large enough to host all the essential services. It is also renowned for its heritage-listed buildings and notorious bushranger history, as it was the home of the infamous Ben Hall, who was responsible for Australia’s biggest gold robbery. It also boasts a new, world-class sculpture trail that draws tourists from near and far.

While staff have access to the school’s aquatic and gym facilities, the town of Forbes boasts two gyms, along with a strong sporting culture. It has football, netball, rugby league and rugby union clubs, an indoor community pool and an outdoor 50-metre heated pool, as well as a ski-dam for water sports.
