Aquinas Catholic College Menai

History

Named after the learned Doctor of the Church, Aquinas College, Menai was opened by Cardinal Edward Clancy in 1993. This was to be a secondary school for the rapidly growing residential area which had formerly belonged to the parish of Sutherland. It was only in 1986 that Holy Family Parish, Menai was established, with Fr Denis Foley as parish priest. Holy Family Catholic Primary School was also started in 1986 and within five years had 400 students.

 

These students would soon require secondary schooling, and so in 1990 the Sydney Archdiocesan catholic Schools Board recommended that a secondary school be established at Menai. The next two years were spent in planning. A five-stage building program was envisaged, with use of demountable classrooms during construction.

 

Aquinas College opened with 50 boys and girls in Year 7, seven teachers and two ancillary staff, all under the leadership of the founding principal, Mr Peter Turner. Stages Two and Three of the building program were blessed on November 1996 by Bishop Geoffrey Robinson. New facilities then included a library, science laboratories, some classrooms and a staff area, at a cost of $5.6 million, of which $4.5 million was contributed by the local community. The final stage of the building program, a multi purpose hall and a four classroom block, was completed in 2006.

 

The College has continued to grow with the first Year 12 class completing their HSC in 1998. In 2005 the College had 975 students and 88 staff.
