Our College’s history dates back to 1876 when the Mercy Sisters opened St Aloysius’ Select School at St Kilian’s in the Bendigo goldfields. The Mercy Sisters have been associated with the College since then and formally regained sole governance of the College in 2013.

The College consists of a Junior 7-9 Campus called Coolock located at 1 St Vincent’s Road, Junortoun and a Senior 10-12 Campus called St Mary’s, located at 164 Barkly Street, Bendigo.

Coolock’s facilities include the Trade Training Centre with a functioning farm and the Sister Aloysius Martyn Arts Centre to name just two. The Sister Aloysius Martyn Arts Centre is a contemporary 2-storey facility, which overlooks ovals and bushland, incorporates twenty-eight flexible learning spaces and a centre for performing and creative arts. A range of specialist and general learning areas support integrated learning across the STEAM areas – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.

At our senior campus, St Mary’s, the recently opened new facilities comprise a specialist allied health area, commercial kitchen and new canteen and indoor/outdoor dining area. This year, Year 10s commenced the innovative iGen program, a partnership of Australian Catholic University, Mercy Health and Catherine McAuley College. They will spend time each week learning at Bethlehem Home for the Aged, engaging with residents and staff.

The sporting opportunities are about to grow for the students, with a new hub set for the Coolock campus. Features will include an indoor training zone with six synthetic wickets, female-friendly and accessible change rooms, administration area and community space.
