As Principal of Chanel College, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our college website. We thank you for taking the time to visit. We hope the website will reflect the vibrancy, strength and confidence of our college community.
Here in Chanel we work tirelessly so as to ensure all students achieve their full potential. We pride ourselves on the familial environment we share with our students. Not only do our students achieve their potential but they do so with a smile on their face.
We provide a broad curriculum which is accessible to all learners. The range of subjects available in Chanel ensures students have the best opportunity to succeed and captures their interests. We ensure no student is left behind and no student is left unchallenged.
We offer students access to state of the art sporting facilities and an extensive range of extra-curricular activities. We encourage our students to get involved with extra-curricular activities as this is another opportunity for students build relationships and to make lifelong friends.
We are committed to a holistic education. We foster and develop moral, caring and diligent students who are dedicated to their learning, while also committed and participative young citizens in society.
Our mission in Chanel College is to enable our students to reach their full potential so that they will make a positive difference in today’s world. We strive to create a sense of community within the school and an informal but respectful atmosphere between students and staff members. In this pastoral environment, students are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and for their learning.
Chanel College opened it's doors for the first time in 1955 with 12 pupils. It was the year after the Canonisation of St. Pierre Chanel, one of the early Marists Fathers, whom the school is named after. The main school buildings were built in the late 60s and the school has gone from strength to strength ever since, currently educating over 600 young men.
