MONIVAE COLLEGE


Monivae College was founded in 1954 by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart to offer a Catholic education in the Western Districts of Victoria. With an ethos of “Giving every child a chance”, Monivae welcomes all students, regardless of social background, academic ability or wealth, accepting those who are not Catholic but still want a religious education. In all activities, the college aims to develop excellence in achievement within an atmosphere of the Gospel values of compassion, concern and service.

Facilities: Monivae provides facilities usually found only in larger city schools. There is an extensive information technology network with 25km of cable linking all classrooms, specialist areas and boarding houses with the resource centre and through which students have access to the internet, newspapers and magazines online. The whole school has been networked, enabling every classroom to have access to learning resources on the Internet. Apple MacBook laptops and Interactive White Boards (IWBs) are also distributed around the school and incorporated into learning programs to enhance classroom activities. Boarding houses and science laboratories have been recently refurbished and equipped. A performing arts centre, technology centre, visual arts studios (including a graphics lab), an agriculture/horticulture complex and school farm with a streamside classroom add to facilities for learning. There are also two sports stadiums, a swimming pool, ovals, tennis courts and spacious gardens with landscaped outdoor recreational areas.

Vocational education subjects are Hospitality, Auto Engineering, Multimedia and VET SISCO, while new apprenticeships and university extension courses are also available.

Student welfare programs: A well-developed pastoral care system extends through the work of all classroom teachers, home-room teachers and deputy principal, chaplains, careers coordinator, school support worker, ministry team and pastoral care co-ordinator and international and national mission experiences.
