Our history

St Aidan’s was opened in January 1907. Initially, the school consisted of an old shed and was run by the Sisters of St Joseph, who used to travel from St Mary’s on foot until a horse and sulky were purchased.

The name St Aidan’s was chosen to honour the Irish Saint – St Aidan of Lindisfarne. This choice reflected the Irish heritage of the group of men and women who helped found the school.

In 1969, the running of the school was transferred to the Franciscan Monks of Mary, with the first lay Principal not appointed until 1990.

Since then St Aidan’s has grown into a two-stream school with an enrolment of just over 400. Our diverse student population comes from around 18 different language backgrounds.

Our school facilities have come a long way from our early beginnings in a shed, with extensive building works adding features such as ‘The Mary MacKillop Parish and School Hall’ (2006), a canteen, dynamic new learning spaces, and a refurbished library.

All classrooms are of an agile design, which is conducive to collaborative learning. The learning spaces are equipped with the latest technology required for contemporary learning.

St Aidan's is now one of the best resourced schools in the local area, providing students with learning experiences that are relevant, engaging, vigorous, and enabling.
