School History

Established over 50 years ago by the Sisters of St Joseph, St Vincent de Paul Primary School has never waivered from its quality Catholic education of its students. St Vincent’s boasts a modern facility with all classrooms either recently refurbished or new. This provides the current enrolment of approximately 240 students with bright, comfortable and modern classrooms. The refurbishments are not limited to the classroom but have also included the library, administration block, a synthetic turf soccer field and playground /oval redevelopment, and spacious gymnasium which the students thoroughly enjoy.

 

 St Vincent’s believes that education involves the whole person – spiritually, emotionally and academically. As a result, St Vincent’s has three priority areas of focus – religious education, quality teaching and learning, and student wellbeing. St Vincent’s is proud of its high quality  staff who continue to remain abreast of changes and improvements within the teaching profession. We have worked in conjunction with Melbourne University contributing to research on the development of Oral Language. As we strive for quality, we know that there is always room for growth and improvement. St Vincent’s is a Kidsmatter school and has implemented strategies to  improve the mental wellbeing of children and families within the school community. St Vincent’s cares for the spiritual welfare of its students who participate in liturgies, prayer and the sacraments and embraces the school motto of ‘Learn with Love.’

 

One of St Vincent’s strengths is the role it plays in the wider community. St Vincent’s embraces the whole school community – both the children and those caring for them – and welcomes parent/carer involvement and ideas. This can be seen in its playgroup and after school activities which operate each week. St Vincent’s encourages parents and carers to get to know each other and embrace the school they have chosen for their child/ren. Morning cuppa’s, parent/fundraising group, assisting with literacy/numeracy groups, listening to children read and other activities foster the building of relationships which can last well after the child moves on to further education.
