Since the amalgamation in 1995, several developments have taken place involving land and buildings that previously were occupied by the college. The former site of Soubirous College and St Bernadette's of Scarborough (including the chapel) have since been developed into residential housing.

The site previously occupied by Frawley College was incorporated as part of the College in 1995 and became campus for the senior secondary students of Southern Cross Catholic College until it was developed in 2006 as the Australian Trade College North Brisbane.Michael Lavarch - Australian lawyer, educator and former politician
