Catholic schools are welcoming to all who seek to share in their modern, vibrant communities and who value what they have to offer – an education of the highest standard that is grounded in Catholic faith and values, in communities of care.
Today, more than ever, there is a growing awareness of the need for education that is grounded in values. In times of rapid change, our schools are providing students with education which will empower them to take their place in the world as spiritual, moral, well-integrated persons.
Catholic schools offer a ‘values added’ education and our curriculum teaches values generating fundamental attitudes of respect and courtesy to each other and a sense of responsibility to oneself, others and the school community. Catholic schools strive to promote positive attitudes and prepare students for a life of worth, not merely a life of work.
St Therese’s School strives to be a faith and learning community which celebrates God’s presence through our Mercy tradition, excellence in learning and teaching, and a strong partnership between family, parish and staff.
At St Therese’s, our school motto is “Through the work of many, united as one, great things are done”, and we constantly try to live by our motto. Our school guidelines, our approach to pastoral care and the way that we relate to each other as members of a learning community reflect the values taught to us by Jesus and modelled by our patroness, St Therese, The Little Flower of Jesus.
