Our Story

Galilee Catholic School opened on 29 January 2007 after a need was identified for a co-educational Catholic learning environment in Aldinga. Due to the large number of families in the region and the desire for faith-centred learning, Galilee has expanded to an enrolment of nearly 350 students and employs 50 staff.

In 2007 Galilee consisted of four learning areas, a shared flexible space, toilets, storage and covered external areas. Stage 2 opened in 2009 with further classroom areas and a worship centre.

In 2012 Stage 3 opened with further homerooms for our older students. Russell and Yelland Architects together with the Galilee Catholic School Education and Building Committee made up of staff, students, parents, parish, community and Catholic Education SA representatives, worked in collaboration to prepare an exciting and innovative design for the learning environments which considers:

  • Space for community gathering that enables meeting, friendship, play and other experiences
  • Safe environments
  • Multifunctional, covered outdoor areas attached to all spaces
  • Maximum flexibility and adaptability
  • Integrated and cutting-edge information communication technology

Galilee boasts flexible, award-winning learning spaces which house our home groups as well as adaptable and open learning spaces for our students to explore. Our Early Years classrooms provide support and guidance for the newest members of our school community with dedicated indoor and outdoor learning spaces.

The opportunities for learning and development are endless with flexible learning that caters to your child's strengths. Our staff are dedicated to providing the best possible learning experience for your child and are committed to continuous learning and development with ongoing training and support.

In 2021, Galilee begins a new chapter as Cardijn College Galilee with a strengthened partnership with Cardijn College. This chapter also involves a long-awaited expansion to offer middle schooling to students at Galilee with new opportunities to step up to middle school.
