At Salesian College Sunbury, staff pride themselves on preparing students for the future. Motivated by the Salesian charism, the college provides a quality education and promotes the school values of Community, Learning, Excellence, and Faith, both in the classroom and in everyday life.

The culture is inspired by the example of Saint John Bosco (Don Bosco), the founder of the Salesians, and in 2023, the college community is proud to celebrate 100 years of Salesian presence in Australia.

The college motto, ‘Striving in Life’, reflects the belief that, given the opportunity and right environment, every student can strive for success. Students are encouraged to have a voice in all aspects of their learning, and a broad range of subjects allows them to be challenged and to open their minds to the potential in their future.

In 2024, the college is launching a brand-new curriculum structure – My Salesian Passport – that celebrates innovation in teaching and learning. The program is designed to empower students to embrace their unique interests and abilities and build a learning pathway that optimises motivation and engagement from Year 7-12.

The college is based on beautiful and unique grounds that feature a working farm, an indoor

sports stadium, a lake, a heritage mansion, and premium facilities. The latest building projects include a contemporary food technology building, and a state-of-the-art STEAM centre (due for completion later in 2023).

The college’s commitment to cutting-edge infrastructure and facilities is reflective of its overarching goal to provide an environment that instils a love of learning in young people and inspires them to strive in life.

Students are empowered to take an active part in their school journey through student voice and

leadership opportunities, and co-curricular clubs and activities. Later this year, students will perform their 2023 college production. Tickets will be on sale to the public in the next few weeks.
