Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St Pius X College – a vibrant and alive school community in the heart of Chatswood.

Mr John Couani, Principal

St Pius X College is a non-selective Catholic Boys’ school for students from Years 5 to 12 under the auspices of Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA). The College has celebrated 80 years of Catholic education in the Edmund Rice tradition and is committed to continuing the foundations laid by the Christian Brothers in all aspects of school life. The College provides quality Catholic education and much is expected of the students, staff and parents.

St Pius X College is first and foremost a Catholic school. We practice our faith and strive to live it out daily in the way we treat each other, the way we learn and through our social justice program and outreach service to the community. We are a family school in partnership with parents.

The College is a learning community with a strong emphasis on academic achievement and seeking constant improvement. Our pastoral care for each student is vital to ensuring the wellbeing essential for good learning. The extensive co-curricular program provides boys with opportunities in sport, music and a vast range of cultural activities.

St Pius X College is a dynamic, contemporary learning community where boys develop and grow in a safe and happy Catholic environment. Excellent teachers, high quality resources and a caring environment combine to provide the boys with a school that enables the challenge and growth necessary for 21st century learners. Our approach to life and education is embodied in the College motto “Fide et Labore” which means “Through Faith and Hard Work”.

I invite you to view our web site, which illustrates the dynamic and diverse learning environment available to our students, as well as the spirit and support that characterizes the St Pius X College family.

The staff, students and parents look forward to welcoming you to St Pius X College.

John Couani
