Message from the Principal


Welcome to the St Carthage’s Primary School community.

For over a hundred years, St Carthage’s Primary School has been committed to ensuring that each student achieves their full potential in a rich faith-based education guided by our Gospel values and grounded in our Catholic traditions. We offer a diverse learning environment that challenges and supports our students to achieve the fullness of life.

At St Carthage’s, everyone is welcome and will feel cared for, valued and respected. We are dedicated to giving our students the freedom to grow and develop community connections with opportunities for academic, cultural, social and sporting success.

We are committed to effective relationships. At St Carthage's Primary School, we develop a deep sense of family spirit based on strong relationships and authentic connections between home and school. We believe parents are their children's first and foremost educators, and together, we will accompany you through your child’s positive and fulfilling school experience.

As principal of St Carthage’s Primary School, it is a privilege to lead a faith-filled nurturing environment where all are valued and inspired to grow, learn and thrive through quality education and opportunities. When our students enter Kindergarten, their innate sense of wonder and enthusiasm is sparked through learning experiences that develop a genuine love of learning that lasts a lifetime.

I hope your time within our community is a happy and rewarding experience as we work together.

I encourage you to contact our school to arrange a tour.
