Stannies stands for community

For more than 150 years St Stanislaus' College has been caring for boarders and their families.

The Bathurst school fondly known as Stannies, is not only the oldest Catholic Boys' boarding school in Australia but it is also the only Vincentian school in the country.

While the school has a strong heritage, it is one with a focus very much on the future.

Geoff Melville, deputy head of college said: "Stannies education is about preparing young men for a promising life after school.

"The foundation for this is a focus on the four Cs. Communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking. Qualities essential for those joining the workforce of tomorrow.

"The school achieves outstanding academic results, but there is more to learn here than just the ability to pass exams.

"Pupils leave Stannies as successful yet caring members of the community. Many progress to university, while others take up apprenticeships or go back to the land.

"The breadth of curriculum is outstanding."
