Empowering young people to be make a difference

Each student is unique in their educational needs and academic abilities.

At Salesian College Sunbury, staff pride themselves on preparing students for the future.

Motivated by Salesian charism, the college provides a quality education and promotes the school values of Community, Learning, Excellence and Faith, both inthe classroom and in everyday life.

The college community is inspired by the example of Saint John Bosco (Don Bosco), the founder of the Salesians, who taught with ‘Reason, Religion, and Loving Kindness’.

An essential characteristic of Don Bosco’s approach was his passion for the formation of young people as both ‘Good Christians and Honest Citizens’. At Salesian College Sunbury staff are committed to perpetuating this vision, encouraging and empoweringour young people to strive in all aspects of life for the purpose of making a difference in the world.

Staff recognise that each student is unique in their educational needs and academic abilities, and are committed to embracing innovative ways of teaching and learning to support the entire student population.This year the college launched its My Salesian Passport (MSP) curriculum structure, which is designed to maximise student agency and, as a result, maximise motivation and enthusiasm for learning. The passionate teachers work to challenge the norm and find reimagined approaches to teaching and subject design, while exploring new ideas and concepts aroundwellbeing, motivation, and integration of technology to ensure that each student has the best opportunity to strive for excellence and to prepare for success in school and life. Students are encouraged to have a voice in all aspects of their learning, and our broad range of subjects allows them to be challenged and to open their minds to the potential in their future.

The college is committed to providing an environment for young people that is reflective of its core values: community, learning, excellence, and faith.
