Our History

De La Salle Catholic College Caringbah opened its doors on the 28th January 1958. Sixty-five boys had arrived to start fourth class with Brother Dermot using the basement of the old church, known also as the ‘Dungeon’.

In 1961, the year the presbytery was officially opened, secondary classes began. Father Keller (parish priest at the time), teachers and parishioners recognised an obvious need for planning for the future needs of the school. As part of this planning, Father Keller visualised a large parish complex, basing his dream on the rapid growth of the local population, particularly the local Catholic population.
