Community & Parish

The students have the opportunity to represent St Therese at the annual ANZAC Day Memorial March. Representatives from the local RSL Sub-branch also attend school-based commemorations of ANZAC and Remembrance Day.

Weekly Assemblies

The values of respect and responsibility underpin the policies and procedures of our school.  The weekly assembly continues to be a forum for promoting these values through acknowledgement of country, singing the National Anthem, commemorating historical events, celebrating religious feast days, recognising the Students of the Week and acknowledging students who have displayed positive playground behaviour.

Parish

St Therese Parish Mascot is a Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Sydney.  A strong relationship exists between the parish and the school.  A weekly Children's Liturgy is offered at the 10:00am Sunday Mass during the school term.  This provides an opportunity for students from the school and parish to participate in the Gospel at their level.  The Sunday Children's Liturgy is held in the school library and is facilitated by staff of St Therese with assistance from members of the parish community.  Specific class liturgies for each grade are held on Sundays with sufficient notice provided.

Mini Vinnies

Mini Vinnies is a program of the St Vincent de Paul Society.  Mini Vinnies creates awareness among our students about issues in and beyond our community.  It reinforces the mission of Vinnies and provides an avenue for effective initiatives and responses.

Sydney Night Patrol

Social justice outreach is a very important aspect of belonging to a Catholic School Community.  The St Vincent de Paul Society runs 'Sydney Night Patrol', a program which aspires to provide those living in the inner city with compassion, support and a sense of community through good works and companionship.  St Therese supports this program.  Each month we seek food and donations of money which are used to purchase fresh fruit and milk.  Families can be involved by donating food items which can be brought to school at any time.  The following donations would be appreciated:

Muesli Bars
Le Snacks
Biscuits (not chocolate)
Fruit Snack Cups
Individual small packs of chips
Large plains cans of tuna
Small fruit juice (Poppers or juice bottles)
Baked cookies / muffins
Sandwiches
