A special flag of Don Bosco to celebrate the bicentenary of his birth is flying high on top of the Rupertswood Mansion at the Salesian College in Sunbury. Born on August 16, 1815, Don Bosco celebrates two hundred years of his birth this year.
The Bicentenary celebrations will be held throughout the year. A high light of the year will be the OzBosco, the gathering of the youth from all over the province at the college in March.
The Rupertswood mansion is now used for the administrations of the college as well as learning and recreation areas for the students and staff.
The college has become very popular under the leadership of its first lay principal, Mark Brockhus. The current enrolment of the college is a little over 1 200 students. Most of these students come from Sunbury, Macedon and Gisbourne areas.
The Salesian College Rupertswood is also considered as the Mother House of the Salesian Province of Australia and the Pacific.
Great things are happening at the college. Greater things are promised for the future as the students, staff and parents have formed a happy community in the spirit of St John Bosco.
