The two campuses

Wanniassa: The Junior Campus

As people approach the Wanniassa Campus, they are greeted by the iconic dark blue entranceway and the words, “Faith and Courage,” the College motto.

The Wanniassa Campus, once the home of Padua High School, accommodates students for Years 7, 8, and 9. As the oldest year group at Wanniassa, Year 9 students are provided with the opportunity to play a significant role in the leadership of the campus.

To support the breadth of curriculum offered at the Wanniassa Campus, an excellent range of facilities exist. These include a new state-of-the-art Information Resource Centre, the award-winning College Chapel, newly refurbished science laboratories, music rooms, a theatrette, gymnasium, kitchens, technology workshops, art and textiles rooms, a weights room, basketball and tennis courts, and an oval.

Isabella: The Senior Campus

The first thing you’ll notice about the Isabella Campus is how open it is, with blocks of classrooms linked by courtyards and external walkways. The open feel of the campus suits the older students – more freedom, more trust, and more responsibility.

The Isabella Campus, formerly the home of St Peter’s College, accommodates students in Years 10, 11 and 12.

Specialist facilities on the Isabella Campus include a media computer laboratory, two commercial kitchens, textile and art rooms, science laboratories, industrial technology workshops, gymnasium, strength and conditioning room, basketball courts, oval, drama and dance rooms, music rooms with a recording studio, a newly-refurbished Information Resource Centre, and the Trades Training Centre. New science labs will be ready for students to use in 2018.

The Trades Training Centre’s Industrial Kitchens and Construction Hangar allow students to work towards Vocational Certificates in the fields of Hospitality and Construction while they complete their Senior Secondary Certificate.
