We welcome you and your family to St Columba’s School and hope your association with our school will be a happy and rewarding one.
As a Catholic school, St Columba’s is a community of faith which openly recognises Christ and seeks to live and proclaim the Gospel message. We promote this in the way the children treat each other, in their relationships with staff and parents and in the atmosphere of respect, co-operation and friendship that permeates throughout our daily activities.
Every child is unique. Every child is special with different needs, interests and particular characteristics that set them apart. At St Columba’s, we celebrate these differences and, through a broad and versatile curriculum, ensure that we cater for them. Our teachers place students at the centre of the learning process and are committed to the growth and development of the whole child: emotionally, academically, physically, socially and spiritually.
We recognise the unique contribution made by parents to the life of our school and to the learning of the children. At St Columba’s, staff, students and parents work together in a spirit of co-operation in the task of enabling our children to reach their full potential. We strongly encourage you to become as involved in the life of our school community as you can.
We look forward to our partnership in their learning journey.
