We are a welcoming, safe and inclusive learning community, giving each student the opportunity to achieve personal excellence in all endeavours.    

We are committed to building positive relationships, acting on Christian values, embuing our students with a confident and contemporary understanding about being man in the 21st Century.

Within our framework of Primary (Years 5 and 6), Middle (Years 7 to 9) and Senior (Years 10 to 12) school’s we offer a comprehensive team to holistically support and guide boys and their families. This includes a Leader of Student Wellbeing, Student Co-ordinator, Indigenous Liaison Officer, Learning Support & Enrichment Co-ordinator, Excutive Officer International Students,  Careers Advisor and College Psychologists.  Each of these positions report to a Deputy Principal - Students and a Deputy Principal - Mission and Wellbeing.

We are also blessed to have two Augustinian Chaplains representing a vibrant congregation and regular invovlement with the College community.

The Mission and Wellbeing office develops and implements a programmed approach to social and emotional learning.  They also initiate new projects enhancing opportunities for students to become more resilient, through the provision of strategies aimed at navigating their way through the challenges of a complex modern world.  This includes relationship building between boys in each of our six Houses - Crane, Goold, Heavey, Hutchinson, Murray and Reville. One key goal is to support Year 7 students' transition into the Secondary School.  Age-specific programs then follow the boys as they progress into Senior School. Student leadership opportunities exist in each Year Group offering boys skills that will support them through to life after school.

Student Wellbeing

"We feed our pupils with the right food, so that the time will come when they can provide their own."

Saint Augustine

We are proactive in the development and implementation of student wellbeing programs. By raising awareness and by providing resources and strategies we can strengthen a boys mental and emotional capacity to develop resilience. Students explore self and social complexities and learn about appropriate management pathways.

College Psychologists 

An integral part of the College’s student wellbeing is the provision of two Registered Psychologists, one full-time and one part-time. Student Services is located in a discreet and very welcoming part of the College campus.

Students generally self-refer to discuss any concerns. Parents and teachers are also welcome to contact the Psychologists regarding student wellbeing. The College Psychologists liaise very closely with all key stakeholders in the care of our students and encourage early intervention through the provision of Counselling, Psychoeducation and Prevention initiatives.  The College Psychologists also work closely with the Leader of Student Wellbeing and the Learning Support and Enrichment Coordinator.

Meet Shiva. A special canine (Schnoodle) who adds a calming influence to our counselling sessions. Known as the College Mascot, Shiva is an adorable gentle dog who works daily with our team. She interacts with the boys offering them unconditional reassurance and empathy. 

Outdoor Education

We identify and nurture learning opportunities when immersed in a natural bush environment. The natural cycles and rhythm of nature draws us closer to our earth and deeper appreciation and connectedness to the wonder and awe of God’s creation. Our young men are involved in a comprehensive outdoor education program from Year 8 through to Year 10 developing their social skills, enhancing human relationships and strengthening their spiritual dimension.

Restorative Practice

Aligned with our Catholic faith, the management of human conflict is based on empathy and forgiveness. We employ restorative practice processes when dealing with the sensitive issues around restoring human relationships.

UNITAS A Year 9 Engagement Program

In Year 9 we provide a unique and exciting opportunity for the students to experience interesting and exciting activities that connect with the local community.  We give back to society, providing boys with a ‘point of difference’ that is rewarding, stimulating and generous in nature. Year 9 boys engage in activities such as cooking and motor mechanics at our local TAFE, sing for children living with disabilitie, assist at local infants’ schools, clean up our local beaches, learn about healthy relationships and how to produce a television show.

Peer Support

We provide structured leadership opportunities and our Peer Support Program complements this by developing connection with a select group of Year 10 boys and all of the Year 7 Year Group. We know the first year of high school offers many challenges and this student formation opportunity helps prepare our young students for their first steps.

Vertical House System – Senior School 

The Senior School has six House Groups, with approximately 90 students. Each House has Tutor Groups who are under the care of their Tutors. The Tutor Group remains together throughout Senior School education. A House Formation Leader is responsible for each House. The House Formation Leader has specific responsibility for the day-to-day management and leadership of their House. All relationships and procedures within the House reflect the College’s belief in the value of “Love, Truth and Community”. This Senior School approach to schooling care, provides a deeper sense of continuity and personalised care for each student.

Indigenous Program

We are all very proud to acknowledge our commitment to ‘Closing the Gap’ in education through the College’s strong and active Indigenous Programme. In partnership with the OSA (Order of St Augustine) Board and the Tribal Warrior Association, we maintain an ongoing relationship with the local Redfern community, reinforcing our Augustinian values including embracing social justice and awareness, along with providing opportunities to Aboriginal young men for quality education.

Our partnership works with both communities to create a safe, respectful and culturally aware place of learning for all students involved. The College community benefits from the richness of the boys’ cultural knowledge and the affirmation of our country’s heritage and identity. Community members such as Uncle Shane Phillips and Uncle Micky Mundine have also become vital advocates of sharing cultural and Indigenous knowledge within our classrooms, enhanced through their visits and incursions with the students and celebrations and a respectful understanding of NAIDOC and Reconciliation Week.  

Healthier and Happier

The canteen is a lively part of College life. Open every day and supported by full time cooks and canteen staff, as well as part-time parent volunteers, who are committed to creating seasonal, healthy and nutritious meals and snacks. Utilising our sophisticated, purpose built new kitchen with high quality catering equipment, all food items are made on site daily from freshly delivered produce, with minimal use of processed, high salt or sugar additives. Wherever possible, we take into consideration the need to minimise our environmental footprint. 

Our wide variety of menu items cater to all student and staff needs, including some gluten free and vegetarian options.

We offer a cashless online SaintsCard ordering system, making advance lunch and recess orders more streamlined and easy for parents to manage.  ‘Create your own’ options allow you to choose a variety of fresh ingredients to build wraps, rolls or salad plate. The canteen also supplies tasty daily breakfasts, including freshly made fruit salad, organic naturally sweetened yoghurt with homemade granola, free range egg and bacon rolls and freshly baked muffins straight from the oven.

Every season, we adjust the menu to cater to the needs of our students.

Our College Uniform

Our boys have been wearing their Saints uniform with pride since the commencement of the College in 1956. Students are well recognised in the local community by their contemporary and impressive College uniform, including a smart black tailored blazer for Senior students and grey blazer for all other students. Uniform items can be purchased directly from our Uniform Shop, with some items available via our SaintsCard online ordering system.
