OVERVIEW
At ۶app we are fortunate to have many state-of-the-art facilities available for our students to experience. Our modern facilities and dedicated spaces help ensure we can continue to have an inclusive environment for our students to enjoy.

You can learn more about our facilities by clicking on the options below

Andre Coindre Chapel

Location: 204 site
The original André Coindre centre was opened by his Grace, Archbishop of Melbourne T.F. Little on 14th March 1981. The new Chapel also remains named after André Coindre (1787-1826), the Founder of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart in 1821 in Lyon, France.

The new Chapel was completed in 2015, with a pillar and its six-metre cross appearing phoenix-like above the College’s roofline, and is used for mass services, religious education classes, and year level Reflection Days. It’s a quiet space that our students have access to during school hours.

Blessed Benedict Daswa Hall

Location: 204 site
۶app saw the need as an inclusive community to have a space where we can have our celebrations together. In March 2022, we officially opened our Blessed Benedict Daswa Hall. This purpose-built space offers two full-sized basketball courts that are flexible in their usage, and which open to our outdoor environments. Our students are able to use this space for various Health and PE classes, lunchtime sport activities and even for different exhibitions like on our careers day.

The most important aspect of our Blessed Benedict Daswa Hall is that it can fit over 1700 people. The space can be converted to a hall that houses all students and staff for our whole school masses, assemblies and larger celebrations.

Information Services Centre

Location: 65 & 204 site
At our 204 site, students have access to the Bouchard Information Services Centre (BISC). The BISC services both the St John’s and Sacred Heart ۶app. Our 65 site services the Christ the King ۶app with the Thomas Murray Information Services Centre (TISC).

This is where student to go use our library services, as well as get ICT support for their laptops.

The space is available to students before and after school, as well as during recess and lunch. It gives students an opportunity to join in the College’s reading culture which is driven by the junior reading classes within the English learning area. The Library staff support the development of Information literacy and research skills in collaboration with classroom teachers.

There are also quiet spaces for students to sit and enjoy their personal reading. The libraries are treated as one campus library, so we do transport books between the sites to ensure that students have access to the entire catalogue.

Cafeterias

Location: Both 65 & 205 sites
Our cafeterias at ۶app are open for students during recess and lunchtime. There are various options available every day, with the menu changing to cater for seasonal menus. The cafeteria aims to supply healthy and nutritious meals for all students and staff.

Our cafeterias are 5-star accreditation from ASCA, which is a not-for-profit and Australia’s leading buying group and purchasing advisor for schools and school canteens. Both sites meet the key criteria that demonstrate best outcomes for the College in quality, service, client satisfaction, financial management and risk management. The cafeterias operate a cashless system which allows parents to top up payment onto student’s ID’s cards at home, or students are able to top up at a student kiosk located around the College.

Our Cafeterias are also home to our Breakfast Clubs which operate every Wednesday before class. This gives students an opportunity to come together as a community to share breakfast.

Garema-Dumont Outdoor Education Site

Location: Meredith Victoria
Garema-Dumont is ۶app’s 56-acre outdoor and environmental education facility located in a native bush land setting on the Moorabool River near Steiglitz in the Brisbane Ranges.

Students at ۶app will visit Garema-Dumont when they are in Years 7 – 9. Our outdoor education camps provide an enriching opportunity for students to try new experiences, and to also get to know their classmates as well.

On-site facilities include a dining hall and kitchen, amenities with toilets and hot showers as well as a barbeque and campfire area. This allows our staff and students to enjoy the outdoors with comfortable amenities available too.

The Moorabool River provides opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, rafting and swimming. The property also has high and low ropes courses, a rock-climbing tower, archery field, bush tucker garden as well as a range of mountain biking tracks.

Garema-Dumont hosts a large range of wildlife including koalas, sugar gliders, echidnas, kangaroos, kookaburras, wedge tailed eagles and platypus. As a sustainable facility, Garema-Dumont produces renewable energy through wind and solar power and promotes minimal impact practices.

LeBreton Swim Centre

Location: 204 site
Just off the 204 site is the LeBreton Swim Centre which is owned by ۶app and managed by Paul Sadler Swimland.

The centre offers a 6-lane pool where the College has priority scheduling for students’ physical education classes, lessons and swimming competitions. As part of our Sports Program, students in Year 7 will participate in the swimming program aiming to teach students lifelong skills about water safety.

Murphy Lecture Theatre

Location: 204 site
Our Lecture Theatre seats approximately 120 people. The space is used by all year levels for talks with guest speakers and special presentations. It’s an opportunity for students to experience what some future lectures will potentially be like if they choose to go to university.

Featuring a digital whiteboard and AV projection it’s a great space for various events.

Quin Auditorium

Location: 204 site
Our much-loved Quin Auditorium is a wonderful space for our College events such as year level or house assemblies, mass services, and various performances in music, drama and dance. It is also host to our annual College musical where our students can showcase their talents to our community. These performances give our students a real-life audience experience.

The venue seats over 800 guests and is also available for hire to the community. For external parties wishing to use the space, enquiries and bookings can be made by emailing qabookings@cccc.vic.edu.au

Senior Kitchenette & Study Centre

Location: 204 site
Our Senior Kitchenette & Study Centre offers a welcoming space just for our senior students. This gives them the opportunity for quieter study that is also close to our Careers and Pathways Centre. The College’s careers team provides advice about subject selection and pathways for VCE, VET and VCE-VM.

The Kitchenette also gives a space for our Senior students to take a break and enjoy some time with their peers.

St Madeleine Arts Centre

Location: 65 site
۶app’s beautiful performing and visual arts centre is located at our Christ the King ۶app. It replaced the building which previously stood in this location and the site was once used as a convent for the Society of the Sacred Heart nuns.

Designed by leading Melbourne-based architects Branch Studios Architects, the St Madeleine Centre transformed the former site into more than 1400m2 of state-of-art space over two-stories for the school’s creative programs. The stunning building is an exciting hub for collaboration and inspiration from a variety of arts including drama, dance, music and visual arts.

Students can use this space for their classes and various co-curricular activities, and it also provides a wonderful event space for us to use as a community.
