About Us

Principal's Welcome

We are extremely proud of the St Anne’s School community where our students flourish in an environment of mutual respect.

St Anne’s School embraces a catholic philosophy reflected in all aspects of our student’s learning. We have a close and supportive relationship with our Sacred Heart Parish, led by Father Martin Cruickshank. Our School provides a foundation built on faith, relevant to the world in which our students live. At St Anne’s we value the individual within a community of supportive and positive relationships.

Our school of approximately 360 students is two streamed with a team of dedicated teachers. Our staff are professional, collaborative and promote effective practices based on professional learning. We value the child as a whole and prepare them with self-belief and confidence to be great citizens in the wider community. We are proud to provide inclusive, child centred learning practices, individualised to each student. St Anne’s has a culture of high expectations with a clear focus on relationships and academics.

The safe and welcoming environment of St Anne’s is designed to support the 21st century learner. Our classrooms are vibrant and well-resourced. At St Anne’s we value and actively support close partnerships with parents, who are encouraged to be involved in their child’s learning.

We embrace technology as a tool to engage, extend and build independence. Students in Kindergarten to Year 2 have access to multiple devices and all students in Years 3-6 are provided with an individual school device (Chromebooks) to access and support their learning. At St. Anne’s we creatively and effectively utilise technology in our learning to achieve the best outcomes for our students.

Come and join our child-centred and enthusiastic community.

Keep Smiling,

Bede Hart, Principal
