Our School

Greetings from the Principal

Schools are vibrant places which provide many different experiences of learning. As a Catholic school Whitefriars provides an education which is immersed in Gospel values and which values all people. Our multicultural community reflects the richness and diversity of our wider Australian culture.

Choosing a school is a very important decision for parents and we acknowledge that parents are the first educators of their children. We as staff see ourselves in partnership with parents in supporting the ongoing learning of their children.

We are inspired by the person of Mary MacKillop and are proud to share in the legacy of the many Sisters of St Joseph and others who have shaped this community since 1912. “In All Things Kindness” is our motto which we try to reflect in our relationships with one another and with our environment.

Every child who enters our community brings great hope and potential. Every family brings gifts and talents to share. All are encouraged to contribute to this community, as together we support the learning and development of our young people.

I welcome the opportunity to talk with those who may be interested in finding out more about our school community. I hope that you enjoy learning a little about us as you explore this website.

Yours sincerely,
Mary Hemmings
Principal
