Introduction to St Francis de Sales Catholic Primary School, Oak Park

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.

We hold an Enrolment Information Evening, School Open Day Tours and Open Library (Story Time) Sessions. Details of these sessions can be found in our Enrolment Information Handbook.

Our Enrolment Information Session, School Open Day Tours and Open Library (Story Time) Sessions are a great opportunity for you and your child, to see our school and students in their school day routine along with our facilities.

Orientation Program Parent Portal

Due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, the School was unable to run its normal Orientation Program with families, meet face to face, hold morning teas and Information Sessions, all of which we would have loved to have held.

The School created an Orientation Portal and what we envisaged and hoped for, was that through this Orientation Portal, we captured the essence of the message we would have liked to have shared personally at our Orientation Sessions.

The Orientation Portal proved to be a very useful tool for our families and we are excited to confirm in 2021 we will once again have an Orientation Portal available for our families to access.
