Deputy Principal (Teaching and Learning)


Welcome to the start of a new school year, especially to the new students, families and staff who are joining St Aloysius. It is an exciting time for students whether they are starting school for the first time, starting a new year level or commencing their final year of schooling. 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.


The Class of 2022 achieved phenomenal results. Congratulations to our College Dux, Alisha who achieved an ATAR of 99.7. Congratulations also to Roshani (ATAR 99.4) and Pari (ATAR 99.2), placing all three students in the top 1% of Australian students.

Our students received 58 A+ grades with 28 Merits awarded across 8 subjects including: Ancient Studies, Digital Technologies, English, English Literary Studies, Legal Studies, Modern History, Research Project and Society and Culture.

Some of the highlights from the class of 2022 include:

Congratulations to the Class of 2022 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. Teachers will check the diary regularly and we ask you to check and sign the diary at least once a week. The diary is an invaluable tool to help students develop their organisational skills.


Homework is an essential part of the study program at St Aloysius College, helping to develop learning patterns, reinforce class learning, develop study skills and provide opportunities for revision, reading and completion of ongoing assessment tasks. 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.


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, 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.

Additional information regarding meeting deadlines, time management 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.
