What our parents & students say

"I have been a part of the St Columba's community now for over 30 years. First as a pupil, then as a staff member at Before and After School Care, and now as a parent. My children are thriving here now just as I did."

Parent of Prep, Year 3 and Year 4 Students
 

We respectfully acknowledge the Boon Wurrung  people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the Country on which we learn and play.
We 
pay respect to ongoing living cultures of First Peoples, their ancestors and their Elders; past, present and emerging.
