Principal’s Message


I warmly welcome you to Don Bosco Catholic Primary School where we provide a nurturing learning environment living the Catholic Social Teaching Principles in our everyday words and actions. We are committed to child safety and in doing so, we take pride in the fact that all children are known and respected. 

We walk alongside families in our mission to deliver the highest quality educational opportunities and outcomes for each student. Learning is delivered to students at their point of need as teachers plan according to the learning and teaching cycle, incorporating the Victorian Curriculum and our Diocesan Religious Education Curriculum, ‘To Live in Christ Jesus’. 

We take a recontextualised approach to teaching Catholic education, where each member of the school community is invited to engage in meaningful dialogue, open to hearing and being inclusive of the faith and life experiences of each other. 

Our school staff work together to improve opportunities for student voice, and take this into consideration in our planning for the provision of optimal learning opportunities. Reimagining learning, we make deliberate choices in our school improvement efforts to build teacher knowledge and understanding of collaborative learning environments.  We aspire to build a Catholic community of learners through professional relationships with our students and their families. By designing learning where students are encouraged to engage, enquire, question and create; we aspire to build a community of learners who actively contribute to the society in which they live and play; now and in the future.
