Year 7 & 8 Precinct

The Dream That Makes You Dream – Year 7 & 8 Precinct

We know from our observations, insights, data, and research that the education needs of our young people have changed during and after the pandemic. It is well-reported that students’ reading, writing, and numeracy skills have declined, with gaps in expected learning. Mental health issues are skyrocketing, family challenges are more prevalent, resulting in attendance and behavior concerns, and the sense of identity and connection for the young is waning. We are listening authentically to the needs of our students, and together with McIldowie Partners, we are developing a visionary Year 7 & 8 Precinct for the College’s future.

This new precinct for the College ensures Salesian College will be a place for boys to grow spiritually, academically, socially, and physically. These new learning spaces will create an environment where there will be hope and optimism to ensure every boy develops his identity and purpose and will allow our Charter to be lived out and developments that will improve learning and teaching and wellbeing for our students.



Salesian College Chadstone Masterplan – Year 7 & 8 Mannix Precinct

The building works will commence with the redevelopment of our Mannix Campus, specifically tailored to meet the needs of our Years 7 and 8 students. This precinct is designed to be a safe and welcoming environment, catering to the unique needs of 12 to 14-year-olds. Working in collaboration with McIldowie Partner architects, the College has developed an exciting Master Plan for this stage, which includes the creation of the Year 7 and 8 Precinct. This precinct aims to provide targeted curriculum, assessment, and pedagogy that will engage students and equip them with the necessary skills for life. The redevelopment aligns with our commitment to delivering a holistic education that nurtures students’ academic, social, and emotional growth.
