A Little About Us...

History of Our School

St Aloysius was established in c1917 by the Sisters of St Joseph. This explains the school's early connection with Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop. 

Administration of the school was taken over by the Sisters of Mercy in c1924. Catherine McAuley is the founder of this religious order and the seven 'Works of Mercy' are symbolised in the school's emblem.

In 1991, St. Aloysius School came under lay administration for the first time.
