School Profile

St Andrew's Catholic Primary School offers an education that acknowledges, respects and nurtures the uniqueness of each person. We provide focused teaching in literacy and numeracy to students from diverse backgrounds. Specialist teachers provide Indonesian, physical education, library, music and computing, using our well equipped facilities. A new arts-focused school hall will be completed in 2010. Our specialist classes include gifted and talented, integrated arts, Reading Recovery, and an instrumental program. St Andrews also operates early intervention programs for students at risk - academically, developmentally or socially. Within a framework of Catholic values and teamwork, the students are challenged and supported to recognise their gifts and develop their potential as they learn and contribute to their community. We are involved in interschool athletics, swimming and cross country competitions. All children are encouraged to participate. Band, choir and a chess club are also available. Our school community is very active and supportive, and has close links with St Andrew's Parish. We operate a 3-year old playgroup, and Out of School Hours Care.
