"They were able to extract from me the very best, by encouraging my self-belief, my steely determination to achieve, succeed, and extend myself beyond what I thought was wildly possible."

- Professor Mark Dawson, Class of 1992 graduate

Salesian College Chadstone is a Catholic School for boys in the Salesian tradition. A dynamic, joy-filled learning community, Salesian College inspires all boys to strive for excellence in the spirit of St Don Bosco. We welcome all boys and their families, celebrate diversity and promote relationships built on mutual respect. All in the community are treated as valued partners in laying the foundation for life-long learning. We celebrate the achievements of all within an environment of joy and optimism. We aim to provide the opportunity for our boys to grow and mature so as to face the challenges of life with confidence, resilience and courage.

About Us

The last twelve months at Salesian College Chadstone have been largely dominated by refurbishments to our facilities. Completed, ready for the beginning of the 2016 academic year, the Naylon Arts Wing has proved its worth with students and staff who regularly utilise the facility for classes, lectures, drama productions and exhibitions. The building’s large, light-filled art rooms, art gallery and media rooms are equipped with the latest in audio visual and hearing augmentation technology, enhancing the teaching and learning experience.

In addition, our state-of-the-art Fedrigotti Science Wing promotes cutting-edge 21st Century learning, with integrated audio-visual and contemporary IT and hearing augmentation systems to create the best possible learning environment for our students.

In line with advancements in our academic streams of curriculum, this year we have shone a light on our tailored VCAL program, which caters to the skills of our practical hands-on learning students. During Term 4 of 2016, we celebrated the opening of our Garelli building, a space our VCAL students are able to call their own. This building is equipped with three classrooms and a project ‘break-out’ space, undercover canopy and courtyard, providing our students with plenty of room to work on their projects. Work is also underway in constructing our two new Food Technology rooms, to be completed by February 2017. Highlights of our longer-term building masterplan are refurbishments to our Student Services and Administration Building at Bosco Campus, and a Sports Precinct at our Year 9 Mannix Campus. With building developments continuing steadily into the future, it’s an exciting time to be a Salesian student.
Our diverse and innovative curriculum engages students in the learning process, challenges them to take responsibility for their learning and encourages them to strive for personal excellence. We cater for students across the entire ability range providing opportunities for highly academically able students as well as comprehensive learning support programs.

THE MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAM (YEARS 7-9)

The Middle Years Program seeks to promote the learning and wellbeing of students in these crucial formative years. The program offers a comprehensive range of subjects and is designed to provide a solid foundation in each of the key learning areas. Our Whole School wellbeing framework is built upon our endeavour to foster a sense of connectedness; so that students feel a strong sense of belonging within our school community. Only then will our boys be able to face the challenges of life with confidence, resilience and courage.

YEAR 9 MANNIX PROGRAM

The Year 9 Mannix Program challenges boys to take responsibility for their own learning; to demonstrate leadership and initiative, to develop their unique talents and explore their personal interests. This program utilises the purpose built facility on the Mannix Campus.

THE BIRETTA PROGRAM

We acknowledge the potential benefit of group enrichment for gifted learners is clear. Strong, consistent results support the idea that ability grouping promotes and enriches learning acceleration (Rogers, 2007). Our specifically-tailored Biretta Program recognises educational research, and appropriately engages and promotes excellence in students. The speed and depth at which material is undertaken by the Biretta Class is tailored to the capabilities of particularly able students, with the curriculum compacted to allow for a range of enrichment and extension activities.

 

Our co-curricular program provides many sporting, cultural and other opportunities to promote a balanced, healthy lifestyle, self-esteem, and social-emotional development.

Extra-curricular activities we offer include Public Speaking, College Productions, Music Bands and Ensembles, ACC Sport Competitions and Volunteering and Community Service opportunities.

Becchi Transition Program for Incoming Year 7 Students:

At Salesian College, we value the need for families to feel comfortable and supported in the transition from Primary to Secondary school. Our Becchi Transition Program ensures that your son receives every opportunity to meet future classmates and teachers, familiarising him with the College grounds and the Salesian ethos. Ensuring all feel part of the Salesian family from the very beginning of your son’s Secondary education journey is our priority.

Oratory System:

All staff and students belong to a House. Years 7 – 12 are organised horizontally by Year Group, with a wide range of activities and projects conducted at the House level. Pastoral Care is made a core focus through the Oratory System.
