“Maria Regina is excited to welcome new Principal, Ms Kirsty Thorpe, to our school. Ms Thorpe has a love of teaching and believes that allowing children to think creatively about real-life challenges or situations will build resilience and teach perseverance for the future.”
Welcome to Maria Regina, a school boasting a rich history of over 60 years of excellence in teaching and learning. Here, we strive to “Make a Difference” as a community by embracing and celebrating the uniqueness, creativity and achievements of each individual.
We are an inclusive, student-led primary school that encourages agile, collaborative thinkers with learning that extends beyond the classroom. Tailored learning enhances each child’s education and our class sizes allow teachers to know and understand each individual. Your child will gain a holistic education at Maria Regina, based on the Catholic values which underpin our curriculum and guide all our actions.
As a new Principal at Maria Regina, I have personally experienced the warmest of welcomes from this astonishing school community. Across the playground, I immediately witness children of all ages playing together – here you don’t only gain friends from your class, you gain friends from across the school. I’ve also been struck by how energetic and enthusiastic each member of our dedicated and talented staff are. Our teachers nurture, engage and challenge each student to achieve their personal best. As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child, and this village is bursting with loving and supportive friends, parents and teachers.
I invite you to meet me and to come explore our school at one of our Open Days. Alternatively, if you would like a private tour or wish to speak to someone at the school, please contact the office on (02) 9918 2608 or email us here.
