Our College

Campuses

St. Paul’s Campus

Students complete their secondary studies in Years 7, 8 and 9 at the St Paul’s Campus.

The St. Paul's Campus has been educating Latrobe Valley students for over sixty years. Students entering the College are joining thousands of accomplished men and women who have studied here.

There are a number of specialist facilities including Science Laboratories, The Le Rozey Art Centre, Food Technology Rooms, The Champagnat Centre and the Lourdes Lecture Theatre. These facilities are central features of the campus and allow for a multitude of innovative teaching and learning experiences. The Chapel is a beautiful reminder of the contribution of the Marist Brothers to the College.

Pastoral support is provided through Homeroom Teachers, Year level Co-ordinators, Counsellors, camps and retreats.

A comprehensive wellbeing program is provided through the use of the Learning Curve, Homeroom teachers and external experts.

Student leadership opportunities are an important part of developing Good Christians and Good Citizens and are available at all Year levels.

Kildare Campus

Students complete their secondary studies in Years 10, 11 and 12 at the Kildare Campus. Strong minds are further enhanced through an extensive curriculum which allows many paths for students to achieve success. The Campus offers a structured yet more adult environment and helps students of varying abilities face the demands and responsibilities of the VCE, VCAL and VET.

There are a number of specialist facilities including our Trade Skills Centre, Food Technology rooms which support delivery of VET programs and numerous specialist rooms as well as a multi-purpose hall. The Chapel, which is located in the heart of the school, has recently been refurbished to provide a quiet and prayerful space for staff and students.

Pastoral support is continued through vertical Learner Advisor Groups, House Leaders, Counsellors, mentoring periods and retreats.

Learner Advisors, Career Advisors, Counsellors and staff assist students and their families with the challenges of making smooth transitions to University, TAFE or the Workplace.

Mindful that our students are growing into adulthood, student leadership opportunities are offered and encouraged in the spiritual, academic, cultural, sporting and civic arenas.

Presentation Campus

This facility is primarily used in Terms 2 and 4 for our Atlas9 program, which allows Year 9 students to engage in collaborative project based studies. The campus provides Lavalla Catholic College with a visible presence in the community and is named in honour of Presentation College which served the Moe and Newborough communities from the mid-1950s until 2001.

The expansive grounds provide a picturesque learning environment and wonderful place to conduct retreats, wellbeing-days and staff in-services.
