Our School

Principal's Message

St Monica’s is a child-centred learning community with a current enrolment of 415 boys and girls, with two or more classes in each year from Kindergarten to Year 6.

As a learning community, the staff at St Monica's provides an enriched, curriculum in which the gospel values are central to all learning experiences, thus integrating faith and life, in cooperation with our Parish. St Monica's curriculum caters for different learning styles and endeavours to develop problem-solving and thinking skills within a climate of discovery. Students have opportunities to develop an understanding of each subject area through a conceptual inquiry approach to learning. St Monica’s strives to enable all students to achieve a high standard of learning and individual achievement by differentiating the curriculum to meet the various learning needs of students.

The education opportunities offered equips students with the skills they need to become active, responsible and engaged citizens. The inquiry process for learning provides students with the skills to make scientific and technological connections to their world and act responsibly within a global community. St Monica’s embraces STEM education as a way to connect learning across the curriculum, in particular Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, promotes student voice in leading their own inquiry path, and develop practical and sustainable approaches to coding and robotics. Overarching our curriculum at St Monica's is the Australian Curriculum.

I believe the St Monica’s school community is unique in promoting a strong values program and offers all children many opportunities to enable them to reach their full potential. The school has a strong focus on Restorative Practices and the mental health and well‐being of all students. The school provides the student enrichment opportunities including, Rostrum, Choir, Japanese, online learning, individual music tuition and involvement in a wide range of sporting activities. St Monica's community is committed to providing innovative, state of the art learning facilities where parental involvement is encouraged and valued.

I look forward to meeting with you in the near future and welcoming you personally to our wonderful school.
