As Principal of St Martin of Tours School, I take this opportunity to share with you aspects of the unique culture that permeates our school community.
We are fortunate to have highly committed staff members, supportive parents, a welcoming school community and friendly students who are interested in learning. Every effort is made to live our school motto of embracing life’s challenges in all aspects of learning.
St Martin’s is a place where Gospel values are modeled. Respect for each individual is shown and expected. Opportunities for Social Justice are fostered. There is a spirit of joyful learning and genuine friendship amongst all members of our school community.
Our students are foremost in all of our learning and activities. Our teaching and learning is based on contemporary learning styles, skills and resources. Teachers strive to ensure the curriculum is child-centered and meets the needs of all students by delivering a rich, differentiated curriculum. Learning styles and interests are considered when planning lessons and purchasing resources.
Curriculum planning is referenced to current government documents including Aboriginal Studies, Indigenous Perspectives and Sustainability. At St Martin’s we are fortunate to have qualified specialist teachers for LOTE (Italian), Library, Music, Physical Education, STEM and Art.
Thanks to parent fundraising and government grants both internal and external spaces are continually maintained to ensure St Martin’s school is welcoming, engaging, serviceable and safe.
