Congratulations to our students who won the Year 7 Premier League AFL Semi-Final against MacKillop yesterday. The final scores were Salesian 8.3.51 def
To travel away from home and beat the top team from the Western Division was a great effort. Staff were particularly impressed with the way students responded
when challenged after quarter time. At no point did any of our Salesian players drop their heads or look to take an easy option. They stuck at it and
the results eventually came as we kicked away in the last quarter.
We were equally impressed with the manner in which our students played the game. It was fast and tough, and whilst there were a few 50m penalties against
us, we did not make too much of a fuss and quickly got on with the job at hand.
When the siren sounded, it was great to see our students celebrate with each other and then very quickly get over to the opposition and shake hands. The
umpires mentioned how impressed they were with the students on both teams.
With thanks to The Angry Butcher in Sunbury, Salesian College was successfully able to run a bicycle workshop on 30 May. Thanks to all members of the community,

We offer scholarships for students with a confirmed enrolment in Year 7 for the following year. The purpose of the Scholarships is to reward and acknowledge
the educational achievements of students who have achieved exceptional outcomes in Year 6 and the schools from which they graduate.
The Scholarships are part of our existing Achievement Program and will be offered in the areas of Academic, Agriculture, Arts,Community Service and Sport.
A panel consisting of the Principal, the Savio Campus Director and the Deputy Principals will offer the scholarships to students. The panel will take advice
from staff representing each of the key areas. The balance and number of scholarships will be the responsibility of the panel.
The process upon which the advice will be based is Academic (application, tests and interview), Agricultural (application
and interview), Arts (audition/folio and interview), Community Service (application and interview) and Sport (application and interview).
Additional input will be sought from the Primary School from which the student will be graduating and information gathered regarding attitude, extra curricular
activities and private achievements. Each scholarship will be to the value of the full College Fees for Year 7 only.
