About Us

St Therese Catholic Primary School is a parish primary school, which is an integral part of the local Catholic community.

Whilst Religious Education, literacy and numeracy are the core purpose of our school, significant achievements have been made in other Key Learning Areas.  Our school’s extra curricula program and lunchtime clubs include many areas of student interest.

School Prayer & Song

School Prayer
Father in Heaven,
We the family of our school,
Ask you to unite us all in love, truth and courage.
We want to love You and each other.
We want to learn the truth that Jesus taught us.
Give us the courage to live good lives.
Help us to treat each other as special members of our school family.
School Song
Our school’s a special place,
Where the people, they care for me,
All the time
Learning new things everyday
With Jesus as my friend.
At our school,
St. Therese’s Mascot, is the place
That I’d like to be
Everyday at St Therese’s Mascot
With all my friends and family.
Learning to be like Him
In everything that we try to do
In everyway,
Reaching out a helping hand
To others that we meet.
A place of peace, a place of love,
A place where we all feel safe
A place to laugh
Everyday is a happy day
With Jesus as my friend
