In keeping with our Mission and our Motto, Strive Believe Achieve, we aim to develop each child’s potential: spiritually, intellectually, culturally, physically and emotionally. We believe that the education of a child is a shared responsibility between parents, teachers and the child.

It is our aim for all who belong to our College community to work together in a climate of respect, support and understanding to provide an environment of security and growth in which all students may fully develop their potential. Each student will be provided with opportunities to discover their God-given talents and encouraged to use them for the good of themselves and others.

St Aloysius Catholic College in conjunction with Catholic Education Tasmania is pleased to announce a very important initiative aimed at assisting our families with the costs in selecting Catholic Education for their children. Those who hold a valid current Health Care Card can now receive a specified level of fee assistance without the need to make an assistance application to the College. 
 
This approach in offering direct fee assistance is in line with both the Archbishop's Charter for our College and aligns firmly with the intention of our founding order, the Sisters of Charity, to come forward and offer the hand of comfort and assistance. It is fitting that this initiative has been introduced in our 60th year of the founding of St Aloysius School.
 
To obtain more information on the fee assistance that is available, please make contact with our Business Manager, Mr Les Gardner 0488 298 744 or les.gardner@catholic.tas.edu.au.

Greater Hobart Catholic College Extension Project

Wednesday 24 June

Dear Community Members,


We welcome today, the announcement from The Most Reverend Archbishop Julian Porteous, together with the Minster for Education, The Honourable Jeremy Rockcliff, and Executive Director of Catholic Education in Tasmania, Dr Gerard Gaskin officially launching the Greater Hobart Catholic College Extension Project in Hobart. A copy of the Archdiocese of Hobart press release is attached for your information.


This is a transformational moment in Catholic Education in the south and we, at St Aloysius Catholic College, are proud to be at the forefront as we plan the extension of St Aloysius Catholic College into Years 11 and 12. We look forward to working with
Catholic Education Tasmania and our fellow extension Colleges in this project.


Today’s announcement signals our opportunity to begin briefing and consulting with our community. The Executive of the College has looked forward to this point and have begun planning for it. Over the next few weeks, we will be sending out more
information about the way forward.


As a College, over 18 months ago, we presented an Educational Plan to Archbishop Porteous that set out our blueprint for the project. This was in response to the Archbishop’s invitation for our College to extend into Years 11 and 12, beginning in
2023. Since that time, much planning has been undertaken by the Principals of southern colleges under the direction of Dr Terry McCarthy, Assistant Director: Government, Policy and Strategy at Catholic Education Tasmania.


Of course, you are aware of the Thematic Goals for 2020 from our Strategic Plan which was shared with the community at the start of the year. As a result of this, we have had Leading Teams project manage areas such as Curriculum, Building and
Infrastructure, Catholic Identity, Staffing and the 2021/2022 arrangements, leading up to the start of Years 11 and 12 in 2023. We look forward to meeting with you next term to inform you of the planning to date in these areas .


Again, we welcome the announcement today and look forward to working with our community, building on the success over the past 11 years, as we extend further to become a Kindergarten to Year 12 Catholic College.


Yours sincerely,


Fr Chris Hope, Parish Priest

Mr Joseph Sandric, Acting Principal

Mr Jeremy Ayliffe, Advisory Board Chair
