What is in various schools most often known as Scripture, Biblical Studies, Orthodox Studies and so on, at St Sava College is known as The Path to Life.

Principal's Message

Anne Nicolaou

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to St Sava College, an independent Orthodox day school for girls and boys located on a pristine and secure property in Varroville, south-west Sydney. As Principal, I am impressed with the tremendous progress our school has made since opening its doors in 2021. Our Christian faith underpins all aspects of school life, where we continually strive to build positive relationships between staff, students and parents – fostering a strong and engaged community.

At St Sava College, students are nurtured in a supportive, encouraging and dynamic environment, where they quickly develop a sense of belonging and contribute to an altruistic culture. Our dedicated and hardworking teachers not only demonstrate unwavering commitment to their work but also possess the skill to instill in each child a sense of worth and the understanding that we are all connected.

We deliver engaging, inspiring, and challenging lessons, set high expectations, and foster self-discipline and intellectual curiosity. We offer a well-rounded education experience that not only develops and challenges our children academically, but also promotes age-appropriate spiritual growth and social and emotional wellbeing, allowing them to thrive and maximise their full potential.

Our parents generously contribute their time, talents, and resources. We extend our gratitude for entrusting us with the future of your children—allowing us to shape and nurture their minds, enrich their souls, and ignite the spark of lifelong learning within them. Prospective parents and donors are warmly invited to explore our beautiful school. Immerse yourself in the serene environment and consider joining us on the Path to Life.

Chaplain's Message

Fr. Rade Radan

It seems like only yesterday that we were adding the last licks of paint to walls and pushing seedlings into garden beds which surround the school building, yet here we are, preparing for the beginning of our fourth year at St Sava College. Seedlings turned to a billowing jungle of flowering plants and walls needing a fresh coat of paint in preparation for the class of 2024.

Many describe St Sava College as the greatest blessing bestowed on our South-West Sydney community. The land and location are breathtaking, the building comfortable and beautiful, the sense of security heartwarming, and the structure and content of the school day more than impressive. Yet it is the angelic expression on the faces of our students as they stream into school of a morning and joyously gallop out in the afternoon, that best express how truly blessed we are.

Of a wintery, misty early morning, principal and staff arrive to the welcome of kangaroos peering at them through the fog as they bustle into the building to make ready for the school day. The children file into chapel, the vigil lamp is lit, the fragrance of incense floating through the air and the chanting of hymns and prayers resonating through the building. There is a mystical quality about the place. Christ is amongst us! The day begins.

Who would deny their child the opportunity of growing up in an environment such as this? The enveloping bush and blue sky of a summer morning are the perfect setting for pondering the greatness of God and the beauty of His creation.

Welcome to St Sava College 2024!

One of the most honoured clergymen of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, the now retired 92 year old, but ever committed servant of Christ’s Church, Fr Miltiades Chryssavgis, visited St Sava College today. A forever true friend of the Serbian people, particularly during the turbulent 90’s, Fr Miltiades was as thrilled to see the College as we were to see him. God grant you many years Pater! Na Mnogaja Ljeta!

Today, on the feast of the Meeting of our Lord (Sretenje), students and staff took part in the thanksgiving service of blessing of the ‘First Fruits of the Harvest’. For reasons of tradition, we annually join the Church in the Northern Hemisphere in the blessing of grapes on the feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord each August 19th. Another glorious day on Serbian National Day at St Sava College!

I can’t love this post more than I do 🥰

A rainbow is a pinnacle of God’s astounding creation. It shines in a dismal, rainy sky or a sky just beginning to reveal the sun. A rainbow reminds us of God’s faithfulness in stormy times.

Faith and science blended beautifully today when Kindy learned about the peculiarities of oil, water and wick in the preparation of the vigil lamp (kandilo). Most importantly we learned that the light reminds us that God is with us when we pray.

Enrol Now

We are pleased to announce that enrolment applications for Year 7 in 2026 are now open. However, we encourage parents to seriously consider transferring their children to Years 4 & 5 as early as 2024. Such a move should be considered for two reasons:

  1. It is in the child’s best interest to consolidate their learning and enrich their literacy and numeracy skills at St Sava College Primary in preparation for High School.
  2. Children who complete their primary education at St Sava College are guaranteed a place in Year 7.

To complete an ENROLMENT APPLICATION click here. An application fee of $100 must be received for your application to be considered complete. Upon receipt, written confirmation will be sent to the applicant. If you have not received a response from the College within 14 days of applying, please contact the College at registrar@stsava.nsw.edu.au.
