St Therese’s is located on Endeavour Drive. It is a safe sanctuary for children with secure fencing that surrounds the property. There are three adventure playgrounds and an undercover sandpit that children enjoy all year round. There is a footy and soccer oval and other grass areas for students to play on. There are multiple hard courts and a gymnasium that is used for sport lessons as well as local community led sports such as karate and basketball.
There are currently 290 students enrolled and organised into two streams of classes from Foundation to Year Four and three Senior classes made up of Year Five and Six children. The number of students in each class is kept as low as possible with classes in Foundation to Year Four having a maximum of 25 students.
The school has an excellent gymnasium facility that is used for sport lessons. Within this space is a stage area that is used during assemblies, whole school masses and other community events such as our Japanese drumming presentations and Christmas carols concert.
Classes from Foundation to Year Six enjoy weekly specialist classes in the following areas;
- Languages - Japanese,
- Physical Education,
- Visual Arts, and
- Kitchen/Garden (Sustainability).
Each class has access to contemporary digital learning tools, such as iPads, various robotics, chromebooks and 3D printers. Our senior students are allocated 1 to 1 chromebooks to use for educational purposes. Each student has their own gmail account and teachers use digital technologies to enhance learning and teaching.
The school has a fully functioning kitchen that provides hot and cold lunches. Students enjoy the canteen facilities on Mondays and Wednesdays. Parents can pay via an online payment option. Throughout the year, the canteen provides themed lunches for those students who are interested, for example hot dogs on Footy Day.
