St Stanislaus' College (commonly known as Stannies) is a Roman Catholic, day and boarding school for boys, conducted by the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul's priests and brothers. It is located in Bathurst, a regional centre 200km west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

The college is the oldest Catholic boys' boarding school in Australia,cite web |url=http://www.vincentians.org.au/vinau.htm |title=St Stanislaus' College, Bathurst |accessdate=2007-06-27 |format=PDF |work=New South Wales - Regional |publisher=Vincentians in Australia] and currently caters for approximately 710 students from Years 7 to 12, including 180 boarders.

St Stanislaus' College is affiliated with the Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia (AHISA),cite web |url=http://www.ahisa.com.au/Display.aspx?tabid=3240& |title=New South Wales |accessdate=2008-02-24 |year =2008 |work=School Directory |publisher=Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia] and is a member of the Independent Schools Association (ISA).

History

Prior to European settlement, the land now occupied by St. Stanislaus' College formed part of the territory occupied by the Wiradjuri people.cite web | last = Tindale | first = N.B. | authorlink = Norman Barnett Tindale | year = 1974 | url = http://www.samuseum.sa.gov.au/archives/HDMS/aa338/tindaletribes/wiradjuri.htm | title = Wiradjuri (NSW) | work = Aboriginal Tribes of Australia | publisher = South Australian Museum | accessdate = 2006-05-26]

St Stanislaus' College was established in 1867. The school came under the control of the Vincentian's in 1889, following the arrival of the Vincentian Fathers and Brothers from Ireland, with the purpose of taking over the college.

In 1896, the college received much media attention when it became the site of the first x-ray for medical purposes in Australia. This x-ray was taken by Father James Slattery on the 21st September, and showed the location of gunshot in the shattered hand of an ex-student.cite web |url=http://www.stockmansridge.com.au/aboutbathurst.htm |title=About Bathurst |accessdate=2007-06-27 |year =2007 |work=The Region |publisher=Stockman's Ridge Wines]

Vincentians continued in the role of President and Headmaster at the College until the commencement of 1993, when it was decided to separate the two roles. The first lay Headmaster at Stannies is Mr John Edwards, who this year commences his 14th year as Headmaster.cite web |url=http://schools.xenware.net/stannies/?id=1352 |title=Our Vincentian Traditions |accessdate=2007-06-27 |work=Our Traditions |publisher=St Stanislaus College]
