Lavalla Catholic College is proud of its provision of Catholic Education in the Marist Tradition, which meets the needs of the students and families in the Latrobe Valley.

Governed by Marist Schools Australia Ltd, both the St Paul’s and Kildare campuses provide opportunities, which engage students, build self-esteem and provide learning experiences that are fun and inspiring as well as structured and rigorous.

Lavalla Catholic College is a welcoming, inclusive community that is called to make Jesus Christ known and loved for all young people.  With ‘Strong Minds and Compassionate Hearts’ we unite to inspire, to journey with and to prepare learners for life in our changing world.  Read more about our vision and mission here.

Acknowledgment of Country

We respect and acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, recognising their continued connection to Country, culture and community. Our school rests on the traditional land of the Gunaikurnai people. We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present.

Lavalla Catholic College is committed to establishing a culturally safe environment in which the diverse and unique identities and experiences of Aboriginal children and young people are respected and valued.

We recognise the importance of every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student feeling that their sense of self and their identity is valued by the people and environments that surround them. Cultural identity and cultural safety are fundamental to a student’s overall wellbeing and sense of self.
