St Catherine Of Siena Armstrong Creek This bold school motto is supported by a caring and collaborative learning environment that empowers students to be their best selves.
Foundation Principal Donna Bryce has a passion for ensuring every child feels safe, inspired and confident to learn and has recruited teachers who believe the same.
“As principal, I strongly encourage positive relationships and a nurturing educational experience,” said Principal Bryce. “St Catherine is a learning community of faith that aspires to engage each student to excel as lifelong learners.”
This learning philosophy is seen through the school’s focus on enhancing each child’s wellbeing through regular exercise and mindfulness. The schools buddy and leadership programs are other examples that build individual and collective wellbeing. While the school choir, bike education and external optional programs of Kelly Sports and the Music Bus allow students to explore their passions.
The popular Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program provides a unique opportunity to feed hungry minds with positive food habits and eco-friendly behavior.  The diverse learning platform enables children to share in healthy food experiences and develop their understanding of environmental sustainability.
“Pleasurable food education is about experiencing the joys of digging in the garden, picking fresh veggies, smelling and tasting the food they prepare and sharing the experience with their friends and helpers.”
All students are energised to pursue excellence through innovative teaching in the foundations of English and mathematics, as well as specialist programs in Literary Appreciation, Performing and Visual Arts, Physical Education and Spanish.
St Catherine of Siena is a Catholic co-educational primary school open to all families who are supportive of the Catholic mission and traditions of Catholic education. The school opened in January 2020 with 135 students enrolled from Prep to Grade 5.
The school boasts a state-of-the-art, research-based educational facility designed to grow over four stages to accommodate an eventual enrolment of 500 students.  The $5.7 million first stage on the 2.8-hectare site is complete and includes two-storey teaching, learning and administration areas, adventure playgrounds with grassed and hard-court play areas. Construction of the second stage is underway.
“We have been overwhelmed by wonderful community support for our new school and look forward to learning and growing together with Armstrong Creek and the Nazareth Parish.”
