History and Facilities

St Aloysius Catholic College, founded in 1960 by the Sisters of Charity as St Aloysius Primary School, catered for Kindergarten to Grade 6 until 2009, when the educational capacity began expanding to cater for Grades 7 -10. The Sisters conducted the school until 2001.

In 2007, the Archbishop of Hobart, Adrian Doyle, gave approval for the primary school to extend its educational program to include Grades 7 -10 and for St Aloysius School to become St Aloysius Catholic College. The introduction of the Grades 5 -10 facilities at the Huntingfield Campus began in 2009.

During the years 2008 and 2010, a staged capital works program occurred to construct educational facilities for Grades 5 – 10.  Our Middle School encompasses Grades 5 – 8, while our Senior School consists of Grades 9 and 10.  We have three learning centres – one for Grades 5 and 6, one for Grades 7 and 8 and the third for Grades 9 and 10. We also are privileged to have a Chapel and Pastoral Space; an extensive library; music, drama, textiles and kitchen facilities; a café; fitness centre, gymnasium and performing arts centre, as well as a large administration centre and outdoor ovals and playing areas.

Our Kindergarten to Grade 4 Kingston Campus recently had its educational provision enhanced with the construction of the Sisters of Charity Centre, a large multi-purpose facility, and an extension to provide extra learning areas for our Kindergarten staff and students.
