Principal Mark Brockhus believes Salesian College Sunbury “prepares students for the future, encouraging them to strive in all aspects of life and inspiring them to enthusiastically engage with the world around them for the purpose of making a difference in the world”.

He says the college is distinct in being Salesian-inspired, providing quality education in a community of faith, with the promotion of specific values in the classroom and everyday life of Community, Learning, Excellence and Faith.

While those values are constant, Mr Brockhus says the type of activities undertaken in schools decades ago are very different to the programs run now.

“We offer project-based learning as a vehicle to assist in our pedagogical development, making it more student-centred and focused on the development of key habits and skills that good learners need for their future endeavours,” he says.

“Learning is designed to enrich, engage and empower students. We inspire our students to find and pursue ideas that matter, encouraging them to have a voice in all aspects of their learning.

“They have access to varied subjects to allow them to move out of their comfort zone, be challenged and open their minds to the potential in their future.

“Our students deserve the best educational programs, based on the latest educational research, and access to educational technologies.

“Our values are instilled in all our students, allowing them to become lifelong learners, looking for ways to contribute to society and be respected members of the community.”

A Senior Open Day on Friday, October 25, will be an ideal time to experience what the senior (years 10-12) campus has on offer.

“Parents and prospective students will get the chance to discover what makes us ‘a home that welcomes’ and a school for the future,” Mr Brockhus says.

Enrolments for Year 7, 2021, close on Friday, August 23. Applications can be made at the website below.
