Principal's Welcome

 

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful school.

St Vincent’s is a Catholic primary school that in partnership with the parish of St Vincent’s Aranda, works to provide quality Catholic education through effective teaching and learning experiences that will enable our children to discover who they are and develop the self-confidence to take on new challenges. We are proud to belong to our parish and as such, part of the ministry of service to our local and wider communities

As Principal I feel privileged to be part of the St Vincent’s story, a rich tradition that has been unfolding for over 45 years now and leading a team committed to academic excellence and the highest level of pastoral care for all our children. The essence of our school motto, ‘Caritas’, is shared by Pope Francis: Whoever lives the mission of Caritas is not simply a charitable worker, but a true witness of Christ…a person who seeks Christ and allows Christ to seek them.

The size and structure of our school allows for each child to be treated as a special individual. Everyone has a voice in our school and this is reflected in our vision. We set high standards for teaching and learning and achieve this through providing a creative curriculum, putting children at the heart of everything we do and working closely with the whole community. At St Vincent’s Primary School, families become part of a community which seeks positive well balanced Christian values for their children. It is a place where lasting friendships are established.

We believe that each child brings his/her own talents and gifts that will be valued, nurtured and developed through the dynamic and stimulating curriculum and opportunities that we offer. However, making a decision about which school to choose for your child can be a daunting one so I invite you to join us at one of our coffee mornings. It will be through walking around the school seeing the students and teachers in action and through asking your own questions that you will get the best ‘feel’ of life in St Vincent’s Primary School.

We look forward to meeting you
