Why St Columba’s?

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you'll make as a parent. The guiding influence of your child's primary school during their formative years is integral to their wellbeing and success now and into the future. It nurtures their self-esteem, determines their academic trajectory and plays an important role in cultivating their faith. We don't take this responsibility lightly.In fact, we consider it our privilege.

We are currently a candidate school for the globally-recognised International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP). This will make us the only Catholic primary school in South Eastern Melbourne to offer the IB PYP, enabling us to offer a uniquely multi-faceted approach to guiding your child.
