Our School

Principal’s Welcome

At St Cecilia’s, our goal is to excel at everything we do as a school.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you and your family to St. Cecilia’s – a dynamic, coeducational Catholic Primary School from Prep to Year 6. If you have not yet visited our school, it would be a pleasure to show you around our beautiful campus in Glen Iris, Melbourne.

Thank you for visiting our school website.  It offers a window into the diversity of our school, providing information about our community, our many programs, existing structures, our excellent facilities and immaculate grounds.  Importantly, this site also presents a glimpse into daily school life – highlighting our wonderful students as they enjoy the many spiritual, academic, cultural and sporting opportunities that are available to them.

Our goal is to excel at everything we do as a school. This excellence extends to all aspects of learning and teaching across our campus, as well as our participation in a wide range of extracurricular activities.

We have so much to be thankful for in terms of those who have worked, learnt and grown in our school before us, and our school will always be indebted to their graciousness and commitment. The school moves forward with great confidence and an eagerness to discover what the future holds.

The first thing that people notice when they visit our school is the warmth and confidence of the students they meet as they walk around the campus. These students are inquisitive, interested and present. They are always keen to engage. Going to school is seen as an enticing possibility and exciting opportunity, with students regularly displaying their enjoyment of their time here at St. Cecilia’s.

We enjoy a strong reputation for the excellent pastoral care of our students. Our staff are wonderful role models who value the dignity and worth of each and every student and strive to create a positive learning environment in which the personal needs of all students are catered for. Students are encouraged to seek personal excellence and challenged to discover and develop their talents not only for themselves, but in the service of others.

St. Cecilia’s offers a wide range of quality educational opportunities that foster the development of each student.  The curriculum programs are current, utilise the latest technology and respond to emerging trends in education and the ever changing demands of our modern world.  

Our school acknowledges the important role of parents as the primary educators of their children. We value and seek to strengthen meaningful partnerships with parents in the education of their children. At St. Cecilia’s, we constantly seek to instil and enhance a strong sense of community, recognising that student success and happiness emerge as a result of the support they receive from their families and the education they receive from their school.

Please take the time to explore our website and learn more about the opportunities for students at St. Cecilia’s. Our staff are always available to answer any of your questions and we invite you to join us for a tour or to meet our staff during school time.

On behalf of the staff and students, I thank you once again for showing an interest in our school.  I trust that this website will provide you with a meaningful insight and greater understanding of our wonderful school.
