Message from the Principal

Welcome to St Thomas More's, a Catholic School that continually work towards achieving or School Creed.


Each one of our students is unique and precious. We're proud to boast an enriching and nurturing environment that places families at the centre of our collaborative approach to our students' learning and development.

The courage and wisdom of our patron saint guides our faith-based community to higher aspirations daily. As educators, we constantly seek to improve our performance, keep ahead of the latest educational methods and practices, and further deepen how we work with our families and carers.

I'm very proud of the success of our school's unique teaching programs and pedagogy. But our success is not based only on our high education standards; our approach is that children are learners who use our We Are Explorer attributes through the guidance of staff, families, carers, and peers for excellence in both academic results and personal growth as they inspire minds and nurture hearts.
