Welcome to St. Mark’s Catholic Primary School. Our school mission statement is:
‘Proudly and joyfully, we love, live and learn as God’s children’
Everyone at St. Mark’s is proud to be a member of our school community; a community that holds Christ at the centre of all that it does. We proudly live by our gospel values, rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ. We firmly believe Jesus Christ is ‘the way, the truth and the life’ and from his example we can live out our lives, fulfilling our God-given potential.
We proudly and joyfully put our faith into action and create change in the world for the better through the catholic social teachings that are embedded and evident throughout our school curriculum. We are blessed at St. Mark’s to have a very welcoming, caring and faith-filled school community that is diverse, inclusive and rich in love. We joyfully share our love with each other and remember the words Jesus told us; ‘love one another as I have loved you’.
Living together as God’s children, we love and serve each other, regardless of our faults or our differences. We want every child to learn that they are capable of great things, and we want them to achieve academic excellence, in a community of faith. We want every child to feel prepared for their next phase of education, so that they confidently share their faith, their gifts, and the good news for the greater good.
Children attend St. Mark’s in Reception class and it is typical to welcome children from as many as 17 different nursery providers. As a result, we plan transition carefully to enable children to get the best possible start to their education at St. Mark’s.
We have 210 wonderful children at St. Mark’s, and we care and value for each one of them as individuals. Here are some photos of how we as a school, live out our mission statement: Proudly and joyfully, we love, live and learn as God’s children.
