Vision and Mission


“I have come that they may have life and have it to the full” John 10:10

St Columba’s Catholic Primary School was established by the Sisters of St Joseph and inspired by St Columba.

In a Field of Opportunity we:

Explore: In an environment where learners are individual in nature and practice, open ended learning experiences are engaging and purposeful, and promote risk taking and a sense of achievement.

Challenge: The learning environment promotes intellectual quality through higher order and creative thinking, through investigation and problem solving.

Create: Our collaborative learning community offers opportunities for innovation and critical reflection based on best practice.

Thrive: Inspired by the Gospel values of faith, hope and love, learners develop strong and respectful relationships that enable them to make connections with, and contributions to, their ever-changing world. 


Inspired by our motto “Truth and Tolerance” we are committed to:

  • Educating students in Catholic faith and tradition recognising Jesus as central to their lives.
  • Providing quality teaching and learning that challenges students and fosters a love of learning.
  • Recognising and valuing the uniqueness and dignity of each child.
  •  Celebrating as a Catholic community which welcomes all in mutual respect and service to make a difference in this world
