About our school

This page briefly introduces the school. It discusses our commitment to the Catholic mission and an introduction to our vision.

Since 1954, St Agatha’s Parish Primary School has continued to serve its Parish community on its present site.  Prior to that, the Good Samaritan Sisters had conducted the Parish school of St Joachim’s in Yarrara Road Thornleigh from 1928.  The first St Agatha’s building served as a combined church/school until 1983 when the Church was completed.

Beliefs About Learning

St Agatha’s Catholic school is a part of the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Broken Bay and we exist to educate and form young people in Catholic discipleship, offering them experiences of following Jesus as members of the Catholic community.

We strive to be a school of excellence where individuals will reach their full potential in a safe and caring environment.

Our Vision is to be a Catholic school which inspires and challenges our children to know, think and value.

Our Mission includes:

  • Enhancing faith development by providing a welcoming Catholic community as an integral part of St Agatha’s Parish;
  • Being a school of excellence in teaching and learning;
  • Valuing each person as an individual, believing each person has a different potential for spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional and physical development; and
  • Providing a safe and caring environment in which the learning takes place.

With our parent community we are continuing to create a safe and productive learning environment grounded in a strong pastoral care program.

I do hope that this website provides a connection with St Agatha’s and that it reflects the passion and joy we feel about our school.
