History

Beginning over a century ago with 54 boys in a parish hall, our College now educates over 1,000 students across three campuses. It鈥檚 a rich history and one that informs our direction for the future.

Early History from 1912

Three Irish brothers, Br Dunstan Drumm, Br Leopold Loughran and Br Jerome Foley, arrived in Melbourne on 4 February, 1912 after a long sea voyage that took them from a bleak northern winter into a hot Australian summer.

Having settled into 鈥楥oldblo鈥, a house owned by St Joseph鈥檚 Parish, they began teaching 54 boys the very next day in the parish hall.

These early days, and indeed the early years, would provide an exciting challenge for our three pioneers in establishing 新澳门六合彩开奖网 in Malvern.

A New Beginning in 1929

A momentous year in the history of the College was 1929. The size and public profile of 新澳门六合彩开奖网 grew dramatically with the move from the first school building in Stanhope Street West to the new Tower Building, erected on the site of our present Tiverton Campus.

That year also saw the return to the College of Br Jerome Foley for a seventeen-year appointment as Headmaster.

Dr Eric D鈥橝rcy, retired Archbishop of Hobart and Oxford educated academic, spoke of his old 新澳门六合彩开奖网 teacher:

Br Jerome, one of many great leaders 新澳门六合彩开奖网 has seen, had the difficult task of steering the College through the hard years of the Great Depression and the Second World War and was loved and respected by generations of 新澳门六合彩开奖网 Collegians鈥.

1953 and Beyond

In 1953 a second property, 鈥楰innoull鈥, was purchased in nearby Northbrook Avenue and, since then, each decade until the end of the century has seen further expansion and growth.

Today the College comprises over 1,000 students and 150 staff divided between Tiverton Campus on High Street, Kinnoull, our senior campus and Holy Eucharist, our Year 9 Campus in Malvern East.

The growth and development of the College, along with the many students who have passed through its gates, are a fine tribute to those three Irish brothers.

Securing our future for the next 110 Years

On Monday, 8 August 2022, our College was pleased to announce it is joining Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS) as its trustees, the 新澳门六合彩开奖网 Brothers transition from their ownership role.

In a joint statement to the community, the College said it was looking forward to embracing the many exciting years ahead as it continues to grow and prosper under the Lasallian charism.

College Master Plan Update

We are excited to announce a significant evolution in our educational approach starting in 2027, as we shift our focus exclusively to secondary boys鈥 education. Our last intake of Year 5 students will be in 2025, marking the end of a 112-year tradition and initiating a strategic pivot to enhance our secondary educational offerings.

In the coming months, we will begin several urgent capital projects as precursors to a comprehensive major works program set to start soon after. We will keep you updated on these developments as they unfold.

This new educational model promises to enrich the community in Melbourne’s south-east and ensures the continued growth and success of our College, staying true to the spirit of 新澳门六合彩开奖网.
