Engadine is a hilly, southern suburb of Sydney. In 1959 four Salesian Sisters opened a convent and St John Bosco Primary School in the Salesian parish there. For some years now the school is run by a lay principal and staff who, together with parents and children have continued to create a vibrant Salesian family atmosphere.
Three Sisters and three novices form the Engadine community. The community leader is also the novice formator. The community is involved with young people in a variety of activities, age groups and settings. Three elderly Sisters reside at the nearby St Vincent's Care Services located within the parish of Engadine, and are visited by community members.
