Welcome to Lisieux Catholic Primary School.
It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to Lisieux Catholic Primary School, a learning community which began its journey in 2018 on a magnificent bush block near the sea in Torquay. On behalf of this wonderful community, I thank you for seeking to find out more about what our school has to offer your child.
At Lisieux, our motto is “known and loved” and these words are infused into our daily practice. Our mission, working in partnership with parents, is to support our students’ educational journey, inspiring them to flourish, to celebrate their many talents and to become young people of faith who will strive to make a difference in the world. We value strong relationships with God and one another.
Lisieux’s beautiful setting and outstanding facilities provide an inspiring environment for all students. Children have a natural curiosity and our programs have been designed to nurture that sense of wonder and foster growth in resilience, critical thinking and independence, as well as encouraging an understanding of our responsibility to care for the environment.
As a staff team, we invest in a ‘blue sky dreaming’ approach because we want to re-imagine what 21st Century education can look and feel like. We work collaboratively to plan and resource our learning opportunities, and when you wander through our school, what we hope what you see and feel is evidence of authentic learning taking place, lots of laughter and dialogue, and a strong feel of community connection.
What makes our school unique is our community of people, our dedication to excellence and our focus on student wellbeing. Our commitment as educators is to walk with our students on their learning and faith journey, encouraging the students in our care to achieve their full potential.
Please feel free to contact me for a personal tour of our learning community, and to hear more about how we can support your child’s growth.
