Our vision is that Catholic secondary schools in the Shire will be thriving Catholic communities through excellent teaching and learning. Families will have the choice of attractive single-sex and co-educational pathways characterised by strong Catholicity, parish connection and unique points of difference.
St Aloysius College Cronulla
formerly known as De La Salle Catholic College Cronulla
A 7-12 co-educational College with state of the art facilities will be created at the 11-12 Cronulla site, offering parents a local co-ed Catholic choice and continuing the tradition of educational excellence and strong parish connection in the Cronulla community. The College will be led by Principal Mr Stephen Mahoney.
De La Salle Catholic College Caringbah
De La Salle Catholic College Caringbah will now cater to students from Years 7-12, continuing our tradition of excellence and connection with parish with expanded offerings including HSC specialist teachers. The College will be led by Principal Mr Peter Buxton.
Our Lady of Mercy Catholic College Burraneer
Our Lady of Mercy Catholic College Burraneer will now cater to students from Years 7-12, continuing our tradition of excellence and parish connection with expanded offerings including HSC specialist teachers. The College will be led by Principal Ms Leonie Pearce.
Each of the three schools will work together sharing resources, facilities and teaching expertise on an equal basis.
Each College will have a 7–9 and a 10–12 structure. This serves the developmental needs of students and is a proven model in successful 7-12 schools globally.
Each of the Colleges will retain its current Principal. The leadership team will include:
- Principal (K-12)
- Dean of Mission (7-12)
- Dean of School (7-9)
- Dean of School (10-12)
These roles will be appointed in 2022 for a 2023 school year start. There will be a transition period for the Dean of Schools for St Aloysius College Cronulla, where there will initially be just one Dean for 7–12. As the College grows, two Deans will be appointed to cover 7–9 and 10–12.
