Welcome to St Francis de Sales Catholic Primary School, where the education and wellbeing of our students is central to everything we do.
When you become part of St Francis de Sales you are welcomed with warmth into a caring community.
As a small and nurturing school, our children are valued for their individuality and are known by name and personality to all. We would love to welcome you to become the newest members of this community.
On behalf of our Parish Priest, Father Thien, the Teaching Staff and myself, we would like to thank you for this opportunity to introduce St Francis de Sales Catholic Primary School to you.
It is the role of the school and the home to assist in ensuring children experience a positive start to primary school. The transition represents a big time of changes for children and families as they leave a familiar setting.
Our highly professional and motivated staff strive to meet the educational and welfare needs of all students. Teachers provide quality learning opportunities to help all students achieve their full potential.
It would be our privilege to have the opportunity of sharing your child’s journey through Primary School and fulfilling the important task of your child’s educational needs so that they may continue to grow and develop into the future.
