Welcome to St Thomas’ Primary School.

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the St Thomas’ Primary School website. Thank you for taking the time to explore our school and the many educational opportunities we can provide for your child.

Our school is situated right next to the beautiful parish church of St Thomas the Apostle Claremont and Mass is regularly celebrated in the church with our Parish Priest Father Wayne Davis. Our Catholic faith is taught in every class according to the religious education guidelines for West Australian Catholic schools. We have a very close connection to the parish with many of our staff being active parishioners who live in the area.

Our school motto is Together in Christ. Our vision is to create opportunities for our children to become loving individuals with the skills to willingly contribute to make the world a better place.

Our school is a warm, friendly, faith filled environment where we strive to develop young men and women of Christian conscience and we are committed to not only the best learning outcomes for our students but the ongoing learning and development of our staff.

We acknowledge the vitally important role of parents. We recognise and value parents and carers as the first educators of their children. We especially welcome parental collaboration in decision making and our school Board and P&F are both excellent avenues for parental involvement.

We encourage and have the expectation that you will be our partners in the education of your children. It is through working together in open honest communication that we will get the very best results for the students in our care. We hope that parents will feel a part of our school and we encourage personal involvement and co-operation. There are many ways parents can become involved in the school and the classroom.

I look forward to sharing a very positive partnership with you as parents and look forward to a happy and successful educational outcome for your children at St Thomas’.

Yours sincerely

Justin Tuohy
