Salesian College (Rupertswood)


Salesian College (Rupertswood)

Salesian College, Rupertswood, also known more simply as Salesian College, is a Roman Catholic, co-educational school located in Sunbury, Victoria, Australia.

It is located on the grounds of Rupertswood Mansion. Set up by the Salesian Society when the mansion and its grounds were sold to them in 1927, it was originally an all-boys boarding school. In the 1950's it began admitting day students as well as catering for boarders. After Sunbury grew in the 1980's the school began to welcome girls to the school and by 1997 it had become fully co-educational and stopped student boarding.

The school has a very wide curriculum ranging from agriculture to visual communications. It has its own sporting facilities including a 25m swimming pool, stadium, a horse XC course and football ground facilities.

The Rupertswood railway station was located adjacent to the school, and from 1962 until closure in 2004 was used exclusively by students. [cite web
