School Community

School Board

St Cecilia’s School is an integral part of the wider Parish Community.

Within the overall parish vision of faith education we see our task as dealing specifically with primary school aged children attending our school. We are committed to developing policies and programs and providing resources which best reflect the needs of our individual school community and will assist the children to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically and intellectually to their fullest potential.

Above all we are committed to developing a strong sense of parish identity through total support of parish policies affecting the school and through involvement in parish activities.
