Early Learning Years

St Virgil’s College is a central city Catholic school catering for boys. Year 2 will commence in 2024, completing the College's Kindergarten to Year 6 learning pathway at the Patrick Street campus. 

Early Years Learning at St Virgil’s College embraces the joy of childhood and the spontaneity of learning for boys. We rejoice in the teachable moments, the moments of wonder and the moments of deep learning which stem from meaningful inquiry.

You are invited to visit the Junior School to view the purpose-built Early Learning Centre and meet the Principal on a tour.

The Edmund Rice Education Australia Early Learning Statement can be viewed here.

College Tour

We warmly invite prospective families to a tour of the Early Learning Centre at 102 Patrick Street, Hobart. Speak with key members of staff, explore the purpose-built facilities and learn more about how experiences are tailored for boys. Bookings are required.


Parent Handbook

Please find information to support you and your son’s smooth transition into the Early Years (Kindergarten to Year 2) in the handbook linked here.

All children have preparedness, potential, curiosity; they have interest in relationship, in constructing their own learning, and in negotiating with everything the environment brings to them. Children should be considered as active citizens with rights, as contributing members, with their families, of their local community. Lella Gandini
