Principal's Message

 Principals Message

Welcome to St Canice’s Primary and to our Upper Blue Mountains home. I am proud to be Principal at this community-oriented school, where there is a committed team of staff that work together with parents, the parish and the local community, to allow our children to experience ‘growth through love and learning’.

Every child is unique and has special talents and skills, and we encourage and develop those here at St Canice’s. We want our students to learn about the world, the Gospel and life. We want this learning to be dynamic, meaningful and challenging, and in a happy and safe environment.

Contemporary learning and teaching is at the forefront for our school. As such, we have recently refurbished our classrooms and offer a wide range of technology. All technology is used to support learning, and includes laptops, iPads and a wireless environment.

We actively encourage play in our outdoor areas. We are fortunate to have grassed playgrounds, basketball and handball courts, sandpits and even a cubby house. Budding musicians and media personalities can use the media workspace and record music, and there is a well-stocked library to encourage readers.

I invite you to read through our school website, and better still, come along and meet us; we are always happy to show families around.
