St Monica's Catholic Primary is a vibrant learning community where excellence in education is our goal.
Our classes are structured for staged learning in an open plan setting (see parent handbook). We have some outstanding facilities in our school to assist in providing high-quality teaching and learning experiences.
Our modern school library is available to the children for borrowing and returning daily. It is also open for borrowing and quiet reading during lunch time, which helps to further develop literacy skills in our students.
Students regularly visit the library to borrow books which encourages reading at home.
Our technology facilities are outstanding, supporting our staff and students to keep pace with the changing world in which we live. All classrooms have computers that access the Internet and school computer network. These computers support the students to enhance their existing learning tasks, as well as allowing for explicit development of technology skills. The students also use digital cameras, scanners and data projectors to support their learning and each stage now has electronic whiteboards.
We believe that it is important to keep our learning up-to-date which is why we work diligently to provide students and staff with the tools and resources that they need to connect and collaborate.
