Catholic Regional College North Keilor is a Catholic Co-educational Year 7-10 College established in 1982. It operates as part of a complex of Colleges with other Year 7- 10 Colleges located at St. Albans and Melton and the VCE campus located at Sydenham.
North Keilor is a Regional College existing under the jurisdiction of the Archbishop of Melbourne and serves students living in the Parishes of Airport West, Keilor Downs, East Keilor and Sydenham.
The complex of Colleges has a single Board of Governance known as Catholic Regional College Council. The membership of the Council comprises Parish Priests, parish based parent representatives, the Principals of the four Colleges and other persons co-opted for their expertise. The Council has two subcommittees – the Board of Studies that deals with educational matters and the Finance Committee.
Strong support exists for the College from parishes in both a pastoral and financial sense. Pastoral support is seen in visits to the College by our priests, participation by the priests in in service programs, camps, regular Masses within the College, special liturgies and Reconciliation.
As a Catholic school we are placed at the ‘heart of the Church’. Within this context, we recognise our defining features as being a parish school which:
As a Catholic school, we celebrate Christ as the centre of our lives, calling us to be life-giving by the way we live the Gospel in our time.
We strive to empower our community to be people of hope for the world.
Overnewton Anglican Community College, Keilor Campus opened in 1987 in direct response to community need for accessible quality education in the northwest of Melbourne. The second campus, at Taylors Lakes opened in 1996.
The College is organised into Junior School (Preparatory – Year 4), Middle School (Years 5 - 8), Canowindra (Year 9), and Senior School (Years 10 - 12). Each Campus has a Junior School and a Middle School with Canowindra located on the Taylors Lakes Campus and the Senior School at the Keilor Campus.
Recognising that education is a partnership, the College seeks high parental involvement and each family contributes 18 hours of service to the College per term. There are over fifty parent working groups helping in areas such as classroom assistance, gardening, yard duty, student banking, photocopying, catering, canteens and the annual fair. There are regular working bees at each campus. The parental involvement is a key to the success of a student's experience in the College. Students attend the College knowing they have the complete support and commitment of their parents behind them
