College Site Redevelopment


St Francis de Sales College, Mount Barker, has today announced exciting news about a 27million dollar development soon to be undertaken.  The project will include the building of our new Sports Centre, the complete rebuild of our Junior School and the development of a Catholic Early Learning Centre.  These projects, which will enhance learning opportunities for current and future families, have been endorsed by the College Board, Catholic Education South Australia and the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools, and last night through the Mount Barker District Council.

Bruno Vieceli, Interim Director of Catholic Education, wishes to communicate to you: “This is a significant development and demonstrates Catholic Education’s commitment to providing quality education in the Adelaide Hills. Catholic Education South Australia congratulates St Francis de Sales College on the announcement of their new development plans.”

This capital development is one of the most significant ever undertaken by Catholic Education South Australia.  It is a strong vote of confidence in the role St Francis de Sales College has to play in expanding to meet the growing demand of families in Mount Barker and surrounds for high quality educational opportunities for children from ages 3 to 18 in the community.

The exciting developments will provide improved opportunities for families of our region to continue living and learning locally in our Hills’ community, knowing that the education provided is supported by outstanding facilities and our progressive approaches to learning.
