Our Philosophy & Vision

At St Denis, staff seek to work together with the school community to provide students sound foundations for growth in religious faith, academic achievement, and physical, emotional and social development and well-being.

We take pride in the diversity of cultures, skills and talents that make us unique as individuals, and celebrate gospel values of tolerance, acceptance and love that unify us as a school community.

At St Denis, we strive to seek the truth in order to grow closer to our neighbour and to God.

St Denis Catholic School community seeks to foster an environment that integrates love, truth and learning, where each individual strives to become a model of Christian living and is nurtured toward his or her full potential.

The Aims of St Denis School

Recognising the primacy of the family as the first school of life where basic life-governing values are established, St Denis Primary School strives to enhance and extend these values by:

  • providing a Catholic education which presents Christ as a model to be followed
  • developing each individual spiritually, academically, physically, socially, emotionally and culturally
  • encouraging the enjoyment of life through the pursuit of personal excellence
  • enhancing personal dignity and respect for others
  • preparing students so they can see themselves as agents of positive change in an ever changing environment
  • providing an environment in which the staff community is encouraged to grow and develop
  • recognising the role and rights of parents and teachers as the co-educators of the children
  • encouraging the growth of the individual within the Christian community
