A History of Catholic Education in Albury.

Greg Ryan's new book begins with the first Catholic school in Albury in 1855, about 90 boys and girls under one teacher in South Albury.

In 1868 the first Sisters of Mercy arrived in Albury. In 1917 Albury’s Christian Brothers’ College for boys was established – the school became Aquinas College in 1959. 

CBC/Aquinas and St Joseph’s Ladies’ College evolved independently until 1983, when co-education was reinstated with the amalgamation of the two schools to form Xavier High School.

Alumni include a Senior Australian of the Year, an Australian Attorney General, an Australian Ambassador to the US, three judges, a Brownlow Medallist, a Wimbledon Champion and many others who can claim impressive achievements.

The book features personal reflections from over 30 past students. Also considered are the local impacts of factors such as removal of Government assistance to non-government schools (1883), World Wars and the Great Depression.

The book is available for $35 from the Xavier High School Office, Albury Library Museum and Dymocks Albury.
