Welcome to St Aloysius Catholic College

Welcome to St Aloysius Catholic College, an exciting co-educational Catholic college of faith and learning in the Kingborough Municipality, south of Hobart.

In keeping with our Mission and our Motto, Strive Believe Achieve, we aim to develop each child’s potential: spiritually, intellectually, culturally, physically and emotionally. We believe that the education of a child is a shared responsibility between parents, teachers and the child.

It is our aim for all who belong to our College community to work together in a climate of respect, support and understanding to provide an environment of security and growth in which all students may fully develop their potential. Each student will be provided with opportunities to discover their God-given talents and encouraged to use them for the good of themselves and others.

St Aloysius Catholic College in conjunction with Catholic Education Tasmania is pleased to announce a very important initiative aimed at assisting our families with the costs in selecting Catholic Education for their children. Those who hold a valid current Health Care Card can now receive a specified level of fee assistance without the need to make an assistance application to the College. 
 
This approach in offering direct fee assistance is in line with both the Archbishop's Charter for our College and aligns firmly with the intention of our founding order, the Sisters of Charity, to come forward and offer the hand of comfort and assistance. It is fitting that this initiative has been introduced in our 60th year of the founding of St Aloysius School.
 
To obtain more information on the fee assistance that is available, please make contact with our Business Manager, Mr Les Gardner 0488 298 744 or les.gardner@catholic.tas.edu.au.

Catholic Mass

Saturday 21 March

Dear families,

Please find attached a letter from the Archbishop of Hobart, Most Reverend Julian Porteous regarding the suspension of public celebrations of Mass for all Catholic Parishes - +JP to Catholic Community 18 Mar 2020


Kingston-Channel Parish Mass online

As a result of the changes mentioned above, Fr Chris, with the assistance of our Head of Mission, Polly Marriott, our Parish Associates, Hannah Donovan & Robert Elkerton and our ICT Technician, Sam Howell, will now be broadcasting Sunday Mass online each week.

We encourage families to join these services either by livestream, at the usual Sunday Mass time of 10.00am, or the service can also be viewed at a time that is convenient to you and your family.

Internet is required which may not be a possibility for all Parish Members but hopefully it will reach, and be a comfort to many. We are working on a step by step help-sheet with images to assist those who would appreciate some instruction. Hard copies of this document will be left in the church - Youtube - online Mass Instructions

If you wish to view the services each week, please use this link to access the St Aloysius Livestreams YouTube page - http://bit.ly/masslivestream

We thank and congratulate Fr Chris and his team for their efforts and adaptability during this time.

Temporary Closure of Explorers Program

Wednesday 18 March

Thank you to all our families for your ongoing support of our school community throughout the current concerns with the Coronavirus situation.  
At this point in time, the advice we have from Public Health officials is that continuing to keep schools open, whilst exercising good hygiene practice is appropriate.
However, after receiving advice from Catholic Education Tasmania we will be closing our Setup for Success - Explorers - Program. We have so many people in such a small space and it would be impossible to maintain the necessary safety measures to avoid transmission of Covid-19. 
We are sad to be missing our time together but hopeful that all these measures will help protect our communities as best we can. Over the next while, I will endeavour to continue to provide families with some ideas for ‘Exploring’.
Blessings 
Andrea Reece (and Amanda Boon)”
