History

­­Salesian College Chadstone: Established in 1957

Sixty-one years ago a group of dedicated people with a clear vision brought St John Bosco’s pastoral vision to Melbourne’s rural Chadstone. Today, building developments and technological advancements communicate the College’s commitment to progress, while core pedagogical vision remains just as relevant as it was 61 years ago.
This is our story.

College Prayer, Song & Crest

“Proudly we sing our song, and faith filled we journey along.” These first lines of our College song become more a part of the fabric of our school each year. Our students identify strongly with our College song, which we proudly chant together at every Whole School Assembly. This anthem is integral to the culture of our College.

Our College Prayer draws inspiration from the philosophies of our founder, St John Bosco, asking God for his guidance in developing our students into fine young men.

Our College Crest combines key motifs from our heritage, including our motto ‘Omnia Omnibus’, and our star, harp, Griffin and two hills. Each symbol tells a story that hails from our founding origins.

“We’re side by side with joyful pride, Salesians true.”
