Deputy Principal (Teaching and Learning)


Welcome to the start of a new school year, especially to new students, families and staff who are joining our community. A new year is an exciting time, whether you are starting Reception, the next year level or Year 12. My hope for every student is that they achieve their personal best and embrace the learning and opportunities that will enable them to flourish this year.

2023 Academic Results

The class of 2023 achieved remarkable results. Congratulations to our College Dux, Isabelle who achieved an ATAR of 99.4 and to Rachita who achieved an ATAR of 99.05, placing both students in the top 1% of Australian students.

We are proud of the way that our students embraced the flexibilities within the SACE to achieve their goals. This included students undertaking Community Connections subjects which were tailored to their individual learning needs and one student undertaking a school-based apprenticeship alongside her studies. Many students also completed VET courses as part of their SACE, with a large number of students achieving ATAR’s over 90 incorporating VET study as part of their program. Over 86% of our students achieved a university offer for their first or second preference, with students embarking on a diverse range of pathways beyond school, including in the fields of Medicine and Health, Humanities and Social Sciences, Law, Business and Economics, Education, Engineering, Architecture and Science.

Highlights of the class are captured in the infographic below.

Congratulations to the Class of 2023 and all their teachers!

School Diary

The student diary is an important tool for communication between school and home, as well as a place to record homework and due dates for assignments. Experience tells us that good use of the diary enables students to develop excellent organisation and time management skills. Teachers will check the diary regularly and we ask you to check and sign the diary at least once a week.


Homework is an essential part of the study program at St Aloysius College, helping to develop learning patterns, reinforces class learning, develop study skills and providing opportunities for revision, reading and completion of ongoing assignments. Students are expected to complete homework set by their teachers. Teachers are also very conscious of the many demands on students, recognising that homework should not deny students the opportunity to spend time with their family, friends or engage in other interests. Students should be able to develop the ability to incorporate homework into their lives in a balanced way. Communication with the subject teacher from parents or caregivers is needed if students have been unable to complete homework.

Work Completion

Teachers understand that difficulties completing tasks can arise. In these circumstances, early communication of difficulties is strongly encouraged. If an assignment cannot be completed by the due date for a valid reason, then an extension should be requested. Students in Year 11 or 12 who are absent on the day of a test or exam due to illness may require a medical certificate. In situations where students are experiencing significant challenges with schoolwork, or if students are likely to be absent for more than a few days, students and/or parents should contact their daughter’s Home Class teachers and/or subject teachers as soon as possible.

Work Completion Guidelines

Additional information regarding meeting deadlines, time management, plagiarism and eligibility for special provisions can be found in our Work Completion Guidelines.

If you have any questions about the curriculum at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me at the College.
