  • attend the nearest Catholic school appropriate to their year level
  • live 4.8km or more by the shortest practicable route from the school

Families living near Beechworth, Rutherglen or Chiltern should check which is their closest school: our College or Galen in Wangaratta. Use ‘Bing maps’ as a reference.
