The foundation of Mazenod College was born of a dream – a dream to establish Catholic Education for boys in the Hills above Perth.
This dream came to light in 1963 when two Oblate priests at the Lourdes Monastery, Lesmurdie, met with the local Member of Parliament (Mr. Dunn) and Real Estate Agents.
On the map of the Hills a block of land was set aside for “Education Endowment”.
Following two difficult years of detailed discussion and negotiations, Deeds of Land were offered to the Oblates on January 27th 1965, providing both building and classes could begin within two years.
