Leave Nothing Undared for the Kingdom of God.

Mazenod College takes its name from St Eugene de Mazenod, founder of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. It is a Regional College administered under the Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS) who work collaboratively with the Oblates who continue to exercise administrative and pastoral care to provide holistic Catholic Education. The School Advisory Council provides a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. The College motto is to ‘Leave Nothing Undared for the Kingdom of God.’

Our Mission
Our Vision

Our Mission

Mazenod College is a Catholic boys’ secondary school striving to live the charism of St Eugene de Mazenod. Centred on the person of Jesus Christ, our community is built on faith, nourished by the Eucharist, and seeks to live and share Gospel values in word and deed.

Our Vision

To Leave Nothing Undared for the Kingdom of God by being people who value learning and service. To acknowledge the owners of the land, care for the gift of creation and embrace the spirit of inclusion for all who work and study at Mazenod College. “Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve” is the focus of our Catholic Education at Mazenod College, aiming to develop young men who are emotionally intelligent, respectful, well-balanced, committed, articulate, and equipped to make a difference in our society as they respond to the needs of others in answer to Jesus’ call to serve.

Guiding Principles

1. Let us be united in the love of Jesus Christ

We seek to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Saviour, and to see people and the world through His eyes. By regularly turning our hearts and minds to Him, and by opening ourselves to the gift of the Holy Spirit, we seek, like Mary Immaculate, to receive God’s holiness and bring it to reality in our daily lives.

2. Be a burning flame, not a smoldering wick

We serve to light the fire inside our students, fostering a burning desire to achieve academic excellence and to cultivate their abilities to the fullest. We see education as a lifelong process of formation in the truth, not just a moment in time, encouraging our students to be the flame, continuously burning brightly and sharing their talents.

3. We have but one heart, one soul

We strive to nurture a friendly and caring school, enabling students to develop a sense of loyalty, solidarity and service. We provide pastoral care and encourage participation in all aspects of College life. Nourished by the Eucharist, and led by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, we believe that once a student enters the College, he and his family become part of our community for life.

4. Learn who you are in the eyes of God

We aspire to instil in all people the knowledge that God’s unconditional love is real and everlasting. Through the creation of an inclusive community and an environment that is conducive to students discerning their unique worth in the eyes of God, all members of the Mazenod family are free to flourish and grow.

5. Enter to Learn. Leave to Serve

We endeavour to emulate St Eugene de Mazenod’s model of standing with the poor in our community and beyond. Acts of service are a key component of an education at Mazenod. On their journey, our students recognise their call to bring the transforming presence of Christ to the world.
