Supporting Tasmanian students
with more opportunities through Catholic education

Tasmanian students can look forward to an exciting new vision for Catholic education and increased educational opportunities in the greater Hobart region.

From the commencement of 2023 three colleges—MacKillop Catholic CollegeSt Aloysius Catholic College, and St Virgil’s College—will progressively extend their educational offering to Years 11 and 12.*

This will provide certainty for the future needs of students and complement the excellent year 11 and 12 education currently provided by St Mary’s College and Guilford Young College.

With the end of the school year approaching it's time to give you an update on the progress of our work to deliver Years 11 and 12 across more Catholic college sites in the greater Hobart region.

On 30 November 2020 Catholic Education Tasmania in collaboration with the project colleges—MacKillop, St Aloysius, St Virgil's, St Mary's, and Guilford Young—commenced a joint campaign launched via Facebook

We will be working closely together to keep you informed as the project progresses!
We’ve started engaging with local councils and architects (and students!) to develop the plans that will eventually become new student learning spaces! This is a very exciting part of the project and we can’t wait to share more about this with you as the work continues.

The Project team has been actively meeting both as a group and with key people within Catholic Education Tasmania. The Project team consists of Principals from Guilford Young College, MacKillop Catholic College, St Mary's College, St Virgil's College and St Aloysius Catholic College and as well as other CET subject matter experts in the fields of pedagogy, curriculum, ICT, facilities, human resources and project management.

CET is also engaging with the Office of Education Registrar and TASC to keep them informed as we prepare to extend three of our colleges to Years 11 and 12. They will assist us in ensuring we meet the relevant standards and requirements to deliver quality learning based on Gospel values to our students.

By combining our strengths, Catholic Education Tasmania will create a fully operational and sustainable senior secondary system in the Hobart region that delivers improved outcomes by creating opportunities for Tasmanian students that would not otherwise be possible.
