Allow me to introduce myself, David Adams-Jones, Principal of St Therese’s School, Bentley Park.
I came to St Therese’s in mid-2016, bringing 16 years’ experience as principal in Queensland and NSW Catholic schools. I look forward to a long and successful relationship at St Therese’s where I can continue to build on the terrific strengths of this school.
St Therese’s is a well-established school in the Edmonton area that was founded over 85 years ago. It has strong links to the local community and a great reputation for providing a quality education for all students, not only those of the Catholic faith. Grounded in the traditional values and ideals of holistic Catholic education, we also have an eye for the future and all the contemporary learning practices, change and technology.
At St Therese’s we believe that all students have a strong sense of belonging to our global community. W also believe that whilst students are on their learning journey, we are committed to helping them become the best version of themselves. This is our “Why”. Our “Why” is intrinsically linked to our moral imperative, being around their wellbeing and learning. To live out our commitment, we acknowledge our parents as the ‘first teachers’ and that journeying together, embracing our faith, life and learning we can achieve our “Why”. This is embedded in the philosophies of Reggio Emilia.
Applications for enrolment into Prep and all other year levels are welcome at any time of the year and I invite you to come and see for yourself what a wonderful school St Therese’s is and to consider whether St Therese’s is the right fit for your child and your family.
I would be delighted to give you a personalised tour of our school and answer any questions you may have.
May God always be with you
