Daramalan College was founded in 1962 in the suburb of Dickson in the Australian Capital Territory by the Priests and Brothers of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (MSC). Initial enrolments comprised 240 boys in Grades 5 & 6 and Form 1. The name “Daramalan” is derived from an Aboriginal word “daramala”. When the great wedge-tailed eagle appeared in the sky, the people thought of the Great Spirit watching over their lives. For Daramalan, the eagle symbol signifies the Great Spirit of God who enfolds and protects us all. As the school song proclaims, Daramalan students are “eagle people”. The College has come a long way over the last 60 years. Second and third generation students are now an integral part of the Daramalan family and will continue to be for years to come.
