Salvado Catholic College opened on February 1 in time for the 2016 school year.

The $20 million college has taken enrolments for students in kindergarten to Year 2.

It will continue to grow until it reaches its capacity as a kindergarten to Year 12 college.

Principal Santino Giancono said the college has had a fantastic start to the year.

“The students have really embraced the new facilities and have been well supported by our wonderful staff,” he said. “I feel privileged to be leading the college through its critical formative years and have been delighted by the level of community support I have experienced during the planning and building phase.”

Stage one of the school includes an early learning centre, junior primary classrooms, nature play spaces, grassed and hard courts, and an enclosed assembly area.

The innovative building design has a focus on shared, flexible learning spaces.

The College patron, Dom Rosendo Salvado, was known as an inspirational missionary, educator, bishop and pioneer colonist who founded the community of New Norcia.

The College welcomes applications from interested families.
