Thank you for considering St Monica's as your child's new school.
St Monica’s Catholic Primary School, Kangaroo Flat was founded in 1859 and after more than a century continues to offer the local community a comprehensive curriculum that supports and empowers its students to become independent, socially aware, lifelong learners.
At St Monica’s the wellbeing of our students is paramount. For students to be able to learn they need to feel safe and secure. We aim to create a warm environment where everyone feels that they belong. To that end the development of relationships between students and their teachers and students with each other is fundamental to our work. We want to develop self worth and confidence both pre-requisites for actively engaged learners.
We provide our students with opportunities to be immersed in new content across the curriculum and stimulate a lively curiosity about the world around them. We prepare our students for the challenges of everyday living by developing their skills in Numeracy and Literacy supporting them to problem solve and to think critically and creatively.
Our specialist programs support holistic education through The Arts- Visual Art and Music, Physical Education and Health. AusLan was introduced in 2022. Engagement is high in our choir and every second year we celebrate The Arts through an Art Show or Production.
All this is underpinned by a daily community of faith as we strive to support students in their spiritual understanding through prayer, Catholic traditions and stories.
Welcome to our school community where we explicitly learn to be safe, be friendly and be a learner through our School Wide Positive Behavior Support program and where our student graduate outcomes endeavour to develop students who:
- follow Christ in their care and respect for life, self, others and their environment,
- are able to develop and sustain relationships with a sense of justice and empathy for others,
- have the academic confidence to develop the skills and strategies to succeed in an ever changing society and
- follow their ideals with confidence and resilience.
I look forward to meeting you to discuss what our school has to offer your child. Our families love our school and I think you will too.
Fiona Dearn (Principal)
