About Us

A Brief History

Our school was founded in 1952 by the Sisters of St Joseph with 52 Kindergarten students.

Even then, the school had a high proportion of migrant families. Many families were refugees from Europe after World War II, from Lebanon in the 1970s and from Vietnam in the 1980s. As a result, programs were introduced to cater for the resulting multicultural mix such as a New Arrivals program, English as a Second Language and Vietnamese bilingual program, all which developed and changed and the English as a Second Language now known as English as an Additional Language or Dialect.  

The school has had a number of building projects and the site continues to develop. 

School Prayer

Dear Jesus,

Help me today at school to show respect to all those who work with me,
to do my best in class and to play fairly with my friends.
Help me to make this a happy day for all those I meet as I live out Mary MacKillop's message of love.
Thank you for parents who look after me, friends who play with me and teachers who are patient with me.
We ask this in Jesus' name.

Amen
