We’re working together to transform learning for students in Greater Western Sydney. This means reimagining and refreshing learning and teaching for today’s world and today’s learners.
The purpose and promise of a Catholic education is to inspire each learner - student, teacher and family - to discover a meaningful and flourishing life.
Every child is different and so is his or her learning journey
Our approach to learning puts the growth of each individual child at the heart of schooling. Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese schools are places of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities. We welcome and truly value each student in our diverse and multicultural learning communities.
Each child’s unique strengths and needs guide the design of the learning opportunities we provide to our students. Our expert teachers will tailor teaching to meet your child at their point of need, track how they are progressing, and respond with extra support when needed. After all, learning how to learn is equally important as what we learn!
Inspired learning starts with highly motivated and professional teachers
Like you, we know that great teachers make a real difference in a child’s life. Our teachers are lifelong learners too and regularly undertake professional development to keep up to date with current best practice in education.
Endless possibilities with learning partners
Our learning approach makes a welcome space for parents, carers and other valued partners to engage with our learners in a deeply personalised, anywhere, anytime approach to learning.
