St Michael’s College has announced it will offer primary co-education beginning with Reception in 2021.
The college was established by the De La Salle Brothers at Beverley in 1954 as an all boys school which gradually expanded to include a second campus at Henley Beach, established in 1967.
In 1972 the first girls were enrolled to undertake studies in their final year of schooling and in 1985 girls and boys were enrolled in Years 11 and 12. In 2008 the college became co-educational from Year 8 and this was extended this year to Year 7 with the transition of Year 7s in Catholic education to a secondary school setting.
Principal John Foley said the next logical progression was to develop a Reception to Year 12 co-educational model.
Primary campus facilities are currently being upgraded to cater for the increased enrolments.Jump to next article
