Meet Our Teachers

Message from the Principal

Wisdom, courage and peace are the values that guide our small parish school.

Each one of our students is unique and precious. We’re proud to boast an enriching and nurturing environment that places families at the centre of our collaborative approach to our students’ learning and development.

Our collective goal is for our children to leave St Thomas More’s proud that they have challenged themselves to become the best young people they can possibly be.

The courage and integrity of our patron saint guides our faith-based community to higher aspirations daily. As educators, we constantly seek to improve our performance, keep ahead of the latest educational methods and practices, and further deepen how we work with our families and carers.

I’m very proud of the success of our school’s unique teaching programs and pedagogy. But our success is not based only on our high education standards; our approach is that children are motivated to become curious, collaborative and connected learners when our school staff, families, carers and students strive together for excellence in both academic results and personal growth.
