Vision & Mission

Our vision and mission as a Catholic primary school in the Penrith community, is to provide a learning environment where all members feel welcomed, cared for and supported.

  • each child’s social, spiritual, emotional, academic and physical growth
  • each individual according to their strengths and needs
  • the continued development of our school curriculum
  • opportunities for professional and personal development
