ST AGNES' PRIMARY SCHOOL
Light in Darkness
Welcome to St Agnes'
Come along on our new Virtual School Tour
Part One: Prep enrolment and transition
Part Two: Teaching & Learning, Playgrounds, Student Leadership
Welcome to St. Agnes' Primary School, we hope you find our webpage informative and that it provides you with a snapshot of the excellent educational opportunities available for the children in our care.
Our children are growing up in a contemporary world. At St. Agnes’, students and teachers work together in an engaging curriculum that provides a wide variety of educational opportunities for the different learning needs. We believe in a targetted approach to teaching and learning, with small group instruction being a key strategy in our approach.
We value open, collaborative leadership where parents, children and staff are true partners. There is a climate of trust, respect and innovation in our response to the rapidly changing world and its challenges. In the St. Agnes community we develop quality relationships, built on respect, inclusiveness and a strong sense of welcome. We pride ourselves on knowing each child and their family.
We acknowledge that parents are the children’s prime educators and consider ourselves privileged to work in this partnership. Our students are taught, nurtured and inspired by an outstanding team who are dedicated, passionate and committed to their roles as teachers, role models and mentors. We believe that when teachers, parents and students develop strong relationships built on mutual trust and respect, then our students will be happy and willing learners. We strive to contribute to the development of students’ sense of well-being, enthusiasm for learning and optimism for the future.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school as we work together to ensure that your child is the best they can be in our vibrant learning community. I warmly invite you to discover more of how St Agnes, Highett makes education an enjoyable and richly rewarding experience for its students.
