Title School rationalisation in the Catholic sector: deciding the future of Cathedral College, East Melbourne
Creator Roach, Philip A.

Subject / Keywords Cathedral College, Melbourne, Catholic schools, Victoria
Abstract The management of decline in Catholic schools is a serious issue for each school’s authority, for staff whose employment is with the school, and with ‘system’ administrators charged with responsibility for co-ordinating rationalisation for the benefit of all. Imposed high level decision-making runs counter to the established principles of subsidiarity and local autonomy. Furthermore, the effectiveness of imposed restructures is limited by the personal commitment of school community members to undertake change.
This historical case study concerns the restructuring of inner-city Catholic secondary education for boys. It shows the decision to close Cathedral College by amalgamation was made by the owner of the property, on the recommendation of the Catholic Education Office – Melbourne (CEO-M), after consultation with its operators, the Christian Brothers. The teachers and ancillary staff sustained the college over its final fifteen months, despite their dislike for the changes being implemented and their concern over ongoing employment in the contractionary amalgamation.
