Fourvière residence caters for 48 boarders from Years 10 and 11. Fourvière commemorates the common origin of the Marist Project. From the earliest antiquity, the hill of Fourvière- the praying hill – is the centre of spiritual and cultural life in Lyon, France. On 23 July, 1816 twelve Marist aspirants, priests and seminarians, St Marcellin Champagnat among them, climbed the hill to the shrine of Our Lady of Fourvière. They placed their promise to found the Society of Mary under the corporal on the altar. A short time later Marcellin Champagnat started the Marist Brothers under this banner, originally, The Little Brothers of Mary.

Fourviere residence is spread over two floors, each with its own fully equipped common area facilitites including 3 purpose built tutoring rooms. It is modern, light and airy, providing our ‘sub senior’ boys with a degree of privacy to relax and study.

The Fourviere boys lead the buddy program with our junior boarders. The focus for this stage of the boarding journey is to refine and sharpen good study and leadership habits that will prepare the boys both individually and collectively for success in Year 12

Fourviere residence is coordinated by Mr Ben Maddox. Ben, who possesses a strong outdoor education background, challenges the Years 10 & 11 boarders to constantly reflect on their learning, College involvement and the type of young man they aspire to be.
