Welcome to the St Clare’s Catholic Primary School website. I hope it will give you a glimpse into the unique and dynamic education that we offer and the community that makes us who we are.
At St Clare’s we fully live our motto ‘Be a Clear Light’. Together staff, families, students and the parish community work tirelessly to make the school a place where all are welcomed and where each individual can realise their fullest potential.
In an increasingly complex and challenging world, the education of our students, crucially, is grounded in Gospel values and spiritual and faith growth in synergy with academic achievement and development of social skills and confidence.
Parents are recognised and celebrated as the first and most important educators of their children. They are encouraged to participate in the life of the school. A strong sense of partnership is evident in our school community by the high level of parent involvement and the great spirit of hospitality also shown by staff and students. We work together to create happy and safe classroom and playground areas, which we believe, are essential for a successful learning environment.
At St Clare’s, we believe a balanced education is important. Consequently, our students enjoy a wide range of learning, sporting, musical and social justice opportunities. We endeavour to help our students develop their skills, resilience and talents, along with a strong sense of compassion and justice, so that they will make a positive difference in our community. Our students enjoy a very strong sense of belonging which is strengthened by the consistent support and encouragement that exists within the St Clare’s community.
