Vision & values

We continually refine our strategies to empower students… to better enable them to cultivate critical thinking skills and ultimately contribute to society as thoughtful and responsible citizens.

St Columba’s is a Catholic Primary School which promotes, teaches and lives by the Gospel values of Jesus Christ – values of love, compassion, respect for the dignity of each human person and respect for the world around us.

Situated in the heart of Elwood, this small parish community school has a warm, friendly, family environment where all stakeholders work together to inspire excellence.

We recognise the unique qualities of each person in our school and strive to create an environment with a sense of security and wellbeing. To do this we promote the awareness, understanding and acceptance of individual differences.

Our staff is dedicated to working co-operatively and professionally to achieve a high standard of learning outcomes. We provide a comprehensive curriculum that requires us to support and challenge each individual student in their learning and personal growth.

We continually reflect on and refine our strategies to empower students as learners, and to help students develop deep understandings of important issues that better enable them to cultivate critical thinking skills, and ultimately to contribute to society as thoughtful and responsible citizens.
