About our school

Mazenod College was established in 1967 and has always been committed to developing a holistic approach the education of young men in the Oblate Charism. Mazenod College is a Catholic Boys’ College served by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate working in partnership with the Melbourne Archdiocese. Founded on the strength of local parishes, we continue to be a community that instils faith, respect and support in the lives of the young men we serve. This encourages our students to foster a sense of charity and awareness of social and global responsibilities. Our students are enthusiastically involved in many charitable activities which include, Rosies’ Street Mission and Oblate Overseas Immersions. Our Visible Wellbeing and Visible Learning approach, intentionally challenge students to work independently and be learners for life. The skills acquired, as they navigate the extensive co-curricular programmes of Sport, Music, Public Speaking, Debating, Outdoor Education and Social Justice, have always been of enormous benefit and are intrinsic to our approaches and practices. Lea Waters’ research and programmes on Positive Psychology enable us to recognise the Science of Wellbeing and the Science of Learning. This enables our students and staff to identify their own and others’ wellbeing in all contexts and across any subject matter. Mazenod College is committed to the pursuit of excellence in the intellectual, social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of each student according to his unique capacity.
