St Agnes' Primary School Highett - Logo.

Our School

St Agnes’ is a dynamic learning environment where our Catholic faith underpins all we do.  We encourage active partnerships with staff, students, families and community and are proud of our high quality personalised curriculum.

Our learning environments are engaging and flexible to enable learning and teaching to be designed to meet the needs of our students. 

Our secure, shaded outside spaces include Adventure Playgrounds, large open play areas, basketball, tennis and netball courts, a large sandpit and a 'Passive Play' area where children can play quieter games and enjoy sharing a large chess set and other play activities.


The school is located on a hectare of land bound by four neighbouring streets. The enclosed site includes the school, the parish centre, the church and tennis courts. The physical dynamics of the parish complex thus contributes to a real sense of community. St Agnes' is a diverse school community where students come from a broad range of social and cultural backgrounds.  We are a welcoming and inclusive community where the wellbeing of all is highly valued.

Extend’s mission is ‘providing opportunities kids should have’.


Our Policies

St Agnes' Primary School is a school that operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them.


Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
