St Scholastica’s Catholic Primary School has a strong connection with Our Mother Mary. Our motto is ‘To Jesus through Mary’ and though the Marist Sisters no longer teach at St Scholastica’s, their legacy remains strong. St Scholastica’s, in building a vital sense of community, upholds beliefs about the worth and dignity of each person, the school is therefore centred around the gospel values. Considerable focus has been placed on policies and practices to ensure that the spirit and vision of the Christian story should permeate throughout the whole of the curriculum.
Our vision and mission are linked to our learning and teaching philosophy where we attempt to offer a holistic education with an emphasis on outcomes where all students succeed but at different times according to varying levels of readiness, and where a caring culture provides the children with a safe and secure environment in which to learn.
St Scholastica’s is a caring and friendly community. It has an enrolment of 140 students, and nearly 20 countries represented in our school population and many different faiths. We have small classes which enables us to teach to the needs of the individual child. Our dedicated staff foster our students’ spiritual, academic, social and emotional growth. All classes have Learning Support staff to further support our students. We are situated on the corner of Burwood Highway and Starling Street. Our modern community centre is located on our school grounds with easy access for school and community functions.
