St. Therese’s is a Catholic Co-Educational School (K-6) that has provided a quality and Christ-centred education for students in the Moonah region for over 80 years. Today, a dedicated and professional staff team carry on the spirit and traditions of our founders, The Sisters of Saint Joseph.
St. Therese’s continues to respond to, and to serve, the needs of parents who seek a Catholic education for their children. We aim to create an atmosphere in which both children and staff can grow and develop as a Catholic Community, loved by God. The school aims to extend this to a sense of belonging within the wider-community of home, school and parish.
We aim to provide a learning environment, which is stimulating, positive and purposeful that caters for the social, physical, emotional, academic and spiritual needs of the students entrusted in our care. Our School Improvement Plan and our policies and activities strive to develop, enhance and nurture each student’s talents and skills.
There are many opportunities for parents to work in partnership with the school, thereby strengthening the bonds of communication between parents and teachers. Parents are welcome to assist with classroom learning and the myriad of activities that take place in and around the school. There are also more formal opportunities to be involved in the life of the school through the School Board or the Parents and Friends Association.
St. Therese’s strives to integrate faith and life within the daily activities of the school. This is achieved through the adherence to Gospel values, so that a warm, welcoming and supportive environment is created.
