Being Principal at St Maria Goretti is a privilege and every day brings with it new challenges and rewards. We strive to provide the students in our care with the essential skills and learning experiences that will provide the platform for life-long learning as they become the future leaders of our society.
St Maria Goretti is 70 years old and steeped in tradition. Despite this, we are always looking towards the future. We welcome your association with our school and look forward to working together to make these early years of education a rewarding experience for you and your child.
My thoughts on...
Our School… You can learn a lot about a place by simply walking around and observing. Our school has a warm, genuine and happy feel. This creates a sense of belonging for everyone.
Our Students… Each day I am greeted with happy, engaged students who are involved in purposeful learning. Our students are proud to say they are from St Maria Goretti and we are proud of everything they bring to our school. Whether it be the contribution they make to the local ANZAC Day service, inter-school sporting teams, the fantastic artwork they produce, their confidence to speak in front of a large audience or the support they provide their friends in times of need – I am proud of each and every one of them.
Our Staff… Our specialised team of teachers and education assistants provide innovative and engaging classes for our children’s first introduction to education. Staff at St Maria Goretti bring a strong commitment towards whole school approaches to numeracy and literacy, as well as early intervention programs and a focus on supporting students with additional learning needs as well as those demonstrating significant academic talent. If you are looking for a school that delivers a unique and stimulating educational environment, where staff, students and parents all work together to nurture and encourage children to reach their full potential, then we believe St Maria Goretti is the place for your family.
