Engadine is a hilly, southern suburb of Sydney. In 1959 four Salesian Sisters opened a convent and primary school in the Salesian parish there. Over the years the Sisters, lay staff, parents and children have created a vibrant Salesian family atmosphere.
Three Sisters and three novices form the Engadine community. The community leader is also the novice formator and is a member of the Parish Pastoral Council. The community is involved with young people in a variety of activities, age groups and settings. An elderly Sister resides at the nearby John Paul Retirement Village at Heathcote, and is visited by community members several times a week.
