St. Francis de Sales Primary School is a Faith Community striving to live its life according to the teachings of Jesus Christ. We celebrate our Faith in the tradition of the Catholic Church, seeking to be a vibrant witness of our faith in the local and global community .
A sense of who I am and how I can be in the world is nurtured in a hope-filled environment of trust and intellectual inquiry, as students learn to integrate their faith with their life and the world they live in. Inspired by the Gospel, students respond using their gifts to act for justice, peace and seek the Common Good for all.
We are committed to forming lives of faith, hope and love in the light of Christ, to enrich the world.
Prayer keeps the presence of God at the forefront of each school day and connected to the church community and the wider world. Our ‘Culture of Prayer’ starts with Morning Gathering as an opportunity for the whole community to come together for prayer, reflection and meditation.
The liturgical seasons and the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, are woven through the school year, forming a pattern of celebrations where God is uniquely and richly encountered.
As part of student’s faith journey, St. Francis de Sales supports children by preparing them to receive the Sacraments.
Education in Faith, is not restricted to the school environment but spreads far beyond; to the playground, the school community and the Parish. Faith journey is a way of life. Students are empowered to seek truth, ask questions and make meaningful connections in their life.
We create a sense of belonging that is extended to all. Our school community encourages belonging in diversity by listening to and celebrating the narratives of each member, ensuring all voices are heard and engaging many perspectives in dialogue with Catholic beliefs and practices.
Students are supported to grow, enlightened by faith, animated by love and leading to hope.
