GENAZZANO FCJ COLLEGE


Genazzano FCJ College is a Catholic day and boarding college, located on Cotham Road in Kew, where in 1889 the Society of Sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus, established their first boarding school in Melbourne. Today, over 1140 students from ELC to Year 12 attend the college which is permeated by the richness and traditions of the Catholic faith and the Ignatian heritage of the Sisters. The school is structured in three stages of learning, rather than in the traditional Primary and Secondary model. These are the Early Years from ELC to Year 4; the Middle Years from Years 5 to 8 and the Later Years and VCE from Years 9 to 12. In such a learning construct students are able to chart and celebrate the various levels of education inspired by a wide range of curriculum and co-curriculum opportunities. The college’s girls’ only environment from Prep to Year 12 allows girls to take intellectual risks and focus on excellence in achievement. The teacher–student relationship is particularly strong and Gen girls can be confident that their teachers have the expertise and the resources to enable them to specifically match their teaching methodology to the ways girls learn and to develop courses to meet their needs.

Facilities: Genazzano’s beautiful, park-like gardens and exceptional facilities provide a unique and inspiring environment for all students. Housed in both historic and modern buildings, Genazzano’s facilities include a new Performing Arts Centre and Music School, an indoor swimming pool, a gymnasium, tennis and netball courts, a hockey field and a 400-metre running track. Other areas incorporate extensive library and technology facilities, state-of-the-art science laboratories and preparation areas, a modern careers centre and classrooms for the Middle Years including tutorial rooms and conference facilities. In January 2013, Genazzano opened a co-educational Early Learning Centre (ELC). This innovative, evidence-based program is based on maximising children’s brain development and inspiring children to learn through play. Children who belong to Genazzano’s Early Learning community benefit from their close proximity to the Early Years Prep to Year 4 students and enjoy access to the extensive facilities and specialist programs at Genazzano. Genazzano has also recently leased a beautiful facility in Brenbeal St, Balwyn, home for many years to the All Hallows Primary School Parish. In 2013 the All Hallows campus became home to all Year 9 students who are participating in the Making Connections Program.

Boarding House: Situated three kilometres from the college, the Boarding House offers a secure, comfortable and supportive Catholic environment for 40 boarders from Years 9 to 12. The offsite residence provides a great sense of community for students while they study at Genazzano.

Curriculum: VCE subjects include English, Literature, ESL, Languages Other Than English (French, Italian, Latin and Japanese), Mathematics (Further, Methods, Specialist), Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Geography, Accounting, Economics, Legal Studies, Business Management, Food Technology, Psychology, Art, Visual Communication, Theatre Studies, Music (performance and styles), Information Processing and Management, Physical Education, Health and Human Development and VET as well as university enhancement opportunities.

Sport: An extensive sporting program is on offer including tennis, softball, volleyball, netball, hockey, water polo, basketball, cross-country, athletics, swimming and skiing. An exceptional rowing program is available which achieves outstanding results each year. Aerobics, fun-running, aqua aerobics and badminton are among leisure options.

Extra-curricular activities: The co-curricular program aims to enhance and extend students’ interests beyond the classroom. Genazzano has an extensive activity base with over 80 supervised activities running throughout the college. Activities include music and sport, as well as a wide range of interest-based activities including public speaking/debating, cooking, the Tournament of Minds, and Science and Maths clubs.

Student Wellbeing programs
: Pastoral care and community-service programs encourage responsible citizenship and action for peace and justice. GEN✩STAR is Genazzano’s progressive and unique whole school program in performance psychology that is delivered via the curriculum. The program provides every student from Prep to Year 12 with the opportunity to develop skills that promote thinking for optimal performance. GEN✩STAR is grounded in research from the fields of performance psychology, sports psychology and positive psychology.

The offsite residence provides a great sense of community. Boarding has long been an integral part of Genazzano FCJ College and boarders come from within Australia and overseas, with the majority from Victoria and NSW border towns. In the early days, boarders were cared for by the FCJ sisters within the college. More recently, boarders are accommodated at Hopetoun Hall, an offsite, purpose-built residence. The Boarding House is staffed by experienced and qualified staff, including a resident Director of Boarding. All boarders develop independence and have the opportunity to enhance their personal, social, emotional, spiritual and academic growth, while living in a caring and supportive community environment. The experience of being a Genazzano boarder promotes positive development and skills acquisition; traits which prepare students to face the challenges of life.
