St Therese School is the largest inner-city primary school in the Archdiocese of Sydney.  The school plant is a multi-million dollar campus consisting of 22 classrooms, specialist rooms, canteen, outdoor learning areas, administration block, staff facilities, parish hall and library.

Under the patronage of St Therese of Lisiuex, we make every attempt to live out her 'little way'.  "You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them." (Therese de Lisieux).

Father Lauro Rufo is our Parish Priest.  He takes a great interest in the school community and is supportive of teachers, parents and children.  The Scalabrinian mission with migrants and refugees is supported by the school community and forms an important part of our outreach.
