About Us


Galilee Catholic Primary School is a systemic school for boys and girls from Kindergarten to Year 6, in the Archdiocese of Sydney. The school and parish are committed to working in partnership with parents to nurture and challenge students as they grow in the Catholic faith and develop their potential.

Facilities

At Galilee we are fortunate to have some wonderful facilities and resources available to students. In addition to our Technology resources we also boast a start-of-the-art library, amongst other things.

School Library

Galilee is extremely lucky to have a new library and learning centre. It is equipped with a Smartboard, wireless Internet access, thousands of beautiful books for borrowing - and is divided into specialised learning areas.

The students enjoy visiting the library once a week for a library lesson with the school’s teacher librarian. They also use the learning centre for whole class instruction with their classroom teacher.

School Bus

Galilee Catholic School is the only primary school in the Eastern Region that has a school bus. Families can utilise our door to door bus service for morning pick ups and afternoon drop offs.

Our bus service is a unique and valuable feature of our school. It is used for such things as whole class excursions, sporting events and extra curricular activities.

We are very grateful to our wider community, particularly Raine and Horne, Bondi Beach, for their generous sponsorship which enables our bus service to continue.

Use the booking form provided below to organise a pick-up/drop-off.
