Welcome to St Aloysius Catholic College

Huntingfield

Welcome to St Aloysius Catholic College, an exciting co-educational Catholic college of faith and learning in the Kingborough Municipality, south of Hobart. We are One College on Two Campuses. Our Kindergarten to Grade 4 Campus is at 123 Roslyn Avenue, Kingston Beach, while our Grade 5 to 10 Huntingfield Campus is located at 12 Nautilus Grove, Huntingfield.

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 Acting Business Manager, Mrs Mary Macrae 6229 0100 or [email protected]tas.edu.au

Our aim is to support the safety of our students and staff during this period.  There will be a skeleton staff who will supervise from 8.20 am until 3.00 pm.

So If the lockdown is extended, we will be ready for Learning from Home from Monday 25th October.
