Welcome to St Therese Catholic Primary School at Mascot. We are the largest Catholic Primary School in Sydney’s inner-city and we operate as a multicultural, multilingual Catholic community. I am proud to lead a school that is focused upon:
Teaching Catholic knowledge and beliefs and encouraging acts of service; especially towards the vulnerable
Assisting students to consistently improve their competency in literacy and numeracy so they are equipped to handle the demands of future, life long education
Offering students opportunities to utilise technology as a platform for learning, exploring and creating
Fostering empathy and goodwill, so that members of our community can appreciate each other’s point of view
Promoting healthy lifestyles including individual and team sports and through our certified ‘Healthy School Canteen’
Providing a curriculum that includes stretch goals in academia, sport, art, music, technology and other platforms
Valuing the gift of creation and preserving it through practices such as litter reduction and recycling waste.
The special cross that hangs in our foyer represents the rich history and charism at St Therese Catholic Primary School Mascot. Decorated with the thumbprint of every child, staff member, and member of the clergy associated with St Therese in 2016, it depicts the unique fabric of our community.
The cross acknowledges Australia’s Indigenous Aboriginal heritage and includes these specific symbols that are important to St Therese, Mascot:
The Celtic cross reminds us of the contribution of the Irish in bringing Catholicism to Australia
Two roses represent our patron, St Therese of Lisieux, otherwise known as, ‘The Little Flower’
The dove symbolises The Holy Spirit
The Sacred Heart of Jesus reminds us of The Daughters of The Sacred Heart who established our school in 1940
The ocean waves are a tribute to the Scalabrinian priests who travelled from Italy to Mascot to continue their mission of working with migrants and refugees.
We are St Therese Mascot. We are grateful for all of our blessings.
St Therese Catholic Primary School Mascot enjoys a close relationship with the St Therese Parish Mascot.
