Our Vision

St. Columba’s Catholic Primary School is committed to the total development of the whole child in a nurturing family community, revealing Jesus Christ.

Our Beliefs

Our fundamental Christian beliefs are:

  • Each human being is a unique creation made in God’s image, possessing inherent dignity and worth.
  • Education is about learning what it means to be human, and that in Jesus Christ we have a model we can follow.
  • Education is a means of discovering a personal meaning in life, of liberating and Empowering individuals to take charge of their own lives and contribute to the society in which they live.
  • Education encourages the development of individuals by fostering a sense of their own worth, the value and dignity of human life, and of responsibility for and service to others.
  • Education facilitates an integration of faith, life and culture.

Our Values

Guided by our Christian beliefs, our values focus on:

  • Nurturing a living faith.
  • Promoting justice and service to others.
  • Striving for excellence in all we do.
  • Fostering joy in learning.
  • Respecting the dignity of each person.
  • Creating and maintaining a caring and inclusive school community.

School Goals

In line with its strategic plan St. Columba’s endeavours:

  • To lead children to know and love Jesus so that they may follow his example in their own lives.
  • To provide a loving and caring environment in which children can develop to their full potential spiritually, academically, physically, socially and emotionally.
  • To affirm, respect and develop the individuality and God-given gifts of each child, staff member and school community member.
  • To provide a sense of security and hope through encouragement of self-esteem and sound relationships with others and with God.
  • To develop an informed awareness of Church teachings and prepare students for their life in a rapidly changing society.
  • To encourage the parents’ role in their child’s education.
