GCC - Our History

Gulf Christian College (GCC) is an independent, co-educational Christian School located in Normanton, in the Gulf district of Queensland.

The College caters for students attending Prep to Year 9 from Normanton, Doomadgee, Karumba and surrounding cattle stations.

GCC has been operating in the community for over 30 years and was originally started by the Normanton Assembly of God Church with classes held in the church building.

In 1997 the current College facilities were built creating an administration building, library, staff kitchen, toilet block, two upstairs classrooms, an undercover area as well as a playground and sandpit play area.

A Library & Resource Centre with the latest in computer technology was completed early 2011 with the official opening in April that year. Extensions to the administration building and two accommodation units for staff were completed shortly after. The College celebrated its 25th birthday on Saturday 15th October, 2011.

In 2016, our Middle School building (stage 1) was completed with a purpose-built science laboratory/classroom and a manual arts classroom designed to cater for our students from Years 7 to 9.


Middle School Extensions & Facilities

In 2017, construction began on the Middle School building (stage 2). This will include two classrooms and a library. The existing library will be converted to a classroom and, with additions to an existing building, a home economics room will become available. Also commenced in 2017 are the covered ball courts, storage and toilet facilities on the land acquired across the road from the College. This facility will significantly enhance the sporting and recreational options for our students.
