From the Principal

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to St Charles Catholic Primary School’s website. As you navigate our site, you will gain some understanding of the wonderful sense of community enjoyed by our students and their families and the opportunities we provide for all children to fully develop their skills and talents.

Our school is embedded within the faith-filled and Christ-centred Parish of St Charles Borromeo and a rich history of prayer, education and outreach. We celebrate valuable traditions that make up our history from Saint Charles Borromeo, The Mercy Sisters and The Josephites.

I share the leadership of this school with our Priests, Fr Richard Gates and Father Peter Kwak, the leadership team and the teaching staff who play an integral part in the leadership of our school and have a key role in policy and program formation and evaluation.

It is our privilege to work in partnership with families to develop the faith of our children and to assist them in achieving their full potential.

St Charles Catholic Primary School offers a rich and varied curriculum, with our teaching staff embracing twenty-first century teaching pedagogy.

Our school is a place that is continually adapting to the changing needs of our youth and their world. It is a place where all students can discover who they are and develop the self-confidence to take on new challenges in a caring and nurturing environment, supported by the whole school community.

Our school is highly regarded by the local community. I feel privileged to be in the role of Principal at this stage in the history of St Charles Catholic Primary School. I invite you to come and visit us and see!
