Our Lady Star of the Sea School Mantra:
Our love is not just words
1 John 3:18
Our Lady Star of the Sea Primary School aims to facilitate each child's learning and development in the context of a warm, Catholic environment. The children are provided with a supportive climate in which to grow as individuals and as members of the school community. The school is committed to providing quality teaching and learning opportunities. There is a strong commitment to respect and partnership between all members of the community.
Our Lady Star of the Sea Primary School, is a two-stream primary school situated within the Sutherland Shire in the Southern Region of the Archdiocese of Sydney. The school caters for boys and girls from Kindergarten to Year 6. There are 449 children in the school at present.
The children come from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. Approximately 38 per cent of our students are from ESL backgrounds. Some students receive additional support through our Special Education program.
Our Pastoral Care Policy is firmly embedded within the principles of Restorative Justice. The school also manages behaviour through the use of a Schoolwide Positive Behaviour for Learning (SWPBL) approach which helps to create a positive school environment.
