Principal's Message

St Gabriel's Catholic Primary School Bexley is embedded within the Parish of St Mary Mackillop - Rockdale City. It is a single-stream school with a current enrolment of 209 students. Our parish community is lead by our Parish Priest, Fr Brendan Quirk.

As a Catholic school we are committed to the development of the whole person. As a partner in Catholic education we commit ourselves to our students by:

  • Celebrating being Catholic in Australia.
  • Ensuring quality teaching and learning.
  • Making a difference in our world.

With a school motto of 'Proclaim the Word of God', we take Jesus as a model for everything we do.

We believe that we 'proclaim' through our relationships with others and the way we respect the dignity of every person we encounter. We do this by work and by deed!

We aspire to excellence in education through programs that are designed to meet the needs of the individual student. We strive to raise the academic bar for all children through exciting and innovative teaching and learning.

With a rich sporting tradition, St Gabriel's provides a variety of opportunities for children to enjoy the thrill of participation in a number of sports. The school also takes great pride in the wide range of creative opportunities we provide, from debating to visual arts. Every student experiences success at St Gabriel's.

Together the teachers, parents and children continue to build a community that can truly be the face of Christ in the Bexley area.
