Principal’s message

Welcome to St Edward’s Primary School’s website. The website showcases the wealth of experiences we offer the children and gives them a wider audience for their wonderful work. We hope you enjoy your visit and return regularly to check out our latest news.

St Edward’s is a great place to teach and learn! Our teachers are committed to a high quality learning experience focused on the individual needs of each child. We are striving to be creative and innovative in our instruction to engage students in their learning through a variety of extra curricular activities, applications of technology, and 21st Century skills.

St Edward’s serves approximately 530 students from the St Edward’s Parish. Our school community has a long standing tradition of excellence in academics, sport, and the arts. As a school, we are committed to our mission of preparing students to not only be high school ready but most importantly, to be life-long learners in an ever changing world.

We desire to help all students achieve their dreams and find success in pursuing life goals. We are unconditionally committed to providing the best possible educational program to our students. We believe that there are numerous opportunities, both within our curricula and through extracurricular activities, for our students to gain the skills that will allow them to be successful in their lives after high school.

As a Catholic school we offer a rich, inclusive and holistic approach to education in the Catholic tradition.  We offer this to all those who come, Catholics and others, those of all faiths and none.

We try to build their self-confidence so that they are unafraid to take the risk of attempting new challenges, to help them blossom and grow as individuals and to give them the academic, social and emotional skills to enable them to better realise their true potential.

Every day I have the privilege of witnessing wonderful children achieve this transformation for themselves and emerge more confident and assured of their worth as individuals, helped by the loving and guiding presence of parents, teachers, special needs assistants and other members of the school community.

Our Catholic Schools support and promote a collective responsibility for improving the conditions of faith development, teaching, learning and wellbeing. Foundational to this improvement work is the shared desired outcomes that are part of the Living Well Learning Well Framework. St Edward’s School strives to ensure this collective focus through creating and sustaining an environment where learning and wellbeing is enhanced and as a result, our students feel safe, valued, respected and cared for and well equipped to be successful learners. Parents and carers play a vital role in their child’s education and their involvement and connection to our school is key to the success to continued success.

Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community and this is MOST important now more than ever. It truly does take a village and at St Edward’s we value teamwork and collaboration! 

If you would like to witness our school in action I’d be happy to show you around. We love showcasing the everyday learning that occurs within our school. Please call and make an appointment.
