Principal’s Message

Welcome to St Therese Catholic Primary School, Mascot. Our school is a place where your child will engage, connect and grow.

Our school strives to promote excellence in education and a love of lifelong learning in the 21st century world. 

A high priority for our school is the identification of student’s learning styles, and how best to stimulate and support their learning by implementing individualised programs. 

A range of intervention programs provided at our school assist in the development  of students’ skills which allows them to participate in a rapidly changing world and contribute to Australia’s future development and prosperity. 

Our school has a strong focus on supporting the learning of students with identified  needs, implementing effective individual learning programs that are designed to cater for the specific needs of every child. At St Therese, there are a range of in-school extra curricular activities for students to access that will allow them to enhance their skill set, knowledge and experience.

Students have the opportunity to engage in a range of STEM activities utilising digital technologies to develop their understanding based on evidence and reason. These skills developed allow them to participate responsibly in developing innovative ideas and solutions in response to questions and situations relevant to personal, social and environmental issues. 

At St Therese Catholic Primary School we work hand in hand with our local Parish and families to gift our children the message that each one of them is seen as unique and special, loved by their parents, cared for by their community and loved by their God. 

Our school Motto, ” Love and Courage’ calls us to place our faith in God and is the foundation of our welcoming school community.

St Therese Mascot Catholic Primary School History and Charism CrossThe 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.
