Our Mission

To develop and nurture an environment where children learn about themselves, their world and God:

  • ​by working in partnership with families, staff and the parish community                     ​​
  • by valuing the diversity of all members of our community
  • by experiencing and living a Christian life in the Catholic faith

Guiding Statement

We are a community of faith, compassion and service, living lives that show God's love to all.​​

Our School Motto

Our school motto – Your light guides, describes both the illuminating path to eternal life as shown to us by our Lord Jesus Christ, as well as the guiding light of knowledge.

Our school has adopted the following Behaviour Expectations as part of our Behaviour Support and pastoral care initiatives.  All children learn about BERNI’s and we ask all families to be familiar with them and discuss them with their children.
