I love being part of St Elizabeth’s Community and I am proud of the dedication and commitment that I see here from staff, parents and students. My work here as Principal is both an honour and a source of joy. Life is full of ups and downs but this is a happy community where many hands reach out to help.
St Elizabeth’s is a Catholic School , honouring and witnessing the way of life taught to us by Jesus Christ.
Parents and Guardians are the first educators of their child/ren and will always be so. The school staff bring professional knowledge and skills to support this partnership of education. Together to build a relationship between home and school that aims for the best learning possible. Together, we aim to provide a school environment that is safe and attractive. A place where everyone focuses on encouraging effort and where we understand that education involves educating each child as a unique and valued member of our community.
We work together to create a culture that enables children to think creatively, express themselves confidently, follow their curiosity independently and manage their learning in an organized and persistent manner to the best of their ability. We expect our students to work hard and to care for each other and to invest in making St Elizabeth’s a very positive place of learning.
As a staff, we understand that we are all learners and we are privileged to be part of a profession that has the responsibility to teach others. We strive to educate our students so that they can actively contribute as members of society, now and in the future. We want to use the very best educational tools, professional practices and resources available to us in the 21st century.
We educate in ways that enable students to view their future with hope, secure in the knowledge that they are lifelong learners and with the ability to realize their own potential.
Our school is part of the Catholic Education System in Victoria and we are blessed to have such a vibrant and rich network of schools where learning is shared and experiences are celebrated.
