About Our School

Our Mission Statement

"An Opportunity to Shine"

St Barbara's Parish School asks all within our community to utilize their talents to contribute to the school and the wider community. God calls us to be truly human, which means fulfilling our potential to help others reach their potential. This is reflected in how the school has developed a shared understanding of teaching and learning that occurs, allowing for the differentiation of learning for students. Each teacher has different talents, and students benefit from their relationships with their teachers and their learning.

At St Barbara's Parish School, our vision offers all an Opportunity to Shine by providing a nurturing environment to create Thriving People, Capable Learners and Leaders for the World God Deserves.
