Welcome

We welcome your family to our community and trust that the experience that is shared by you, your child and the Don Bosco Catholic Community; will be a rewarding aspect of your spiritual, educational and family journey. We have a strong commitment to nurture the safety and wellbeing of young people. We are on a continual journey to provide a high-quality Catholic education where young people come to know the loving God and their call to act in faith. Our students feel safe, empowered and confident in their ability to learn as staff work and learn together in a culture of high expectations.

We are proud to be one of the oldest schools in the Narre Warren Community, officially opening in 1982 by the then Bishop of Sale, Eric D'Arcy. The School is named after an Italian priest who lived and working in the Italian city of Turing. St. John Bosco (b.16/8/1815 - d.31/8/1888) founded the Salesian order of Priests and religious Brothers to continue his spirit and mission and was proclaimed a Saint of the Catholic Church in 1934. His life’s work was the care of young people, especially the ‘poor and abandoned’. He was called “Don” by his students which means “Father” in Italian. St. John Bosco founded the Salesians 

Staff work alongside students and their families to create whole school expectations and align these with the Catholic Social Teaching Principles.The school values of compassion, courage, inclusivity and safety set the foundations for our Whole School Approach to Positive behaviour.
