"In te Deus corda nostra"
May our hearts, O God, reside in You

St Monica's is proud to be part of Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta’s system of 80 Catholic primary and secondary schools operating across Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains providing more than 43,500 students with a high-quality, low fee Catholic education.

At St Monica's Catholic Primary we aim to instil the values of compassion, justice and a love of learning in all of our students. At the heart of our community is the Parish of St Monica's, which nurtures our faith under the guidance of our Parish Priest. To this end, the activities of the Parish and the school are closely linked.

Our mission is to build a Christ-centred environment by which our community can grow and fulfil its highest potential through quality education.

Our mission is founded on five key beliefs that reflect the vision of our community:

We believe that our Community must be Christ-centred in all its endeavours.

We believe that everyone in our community is valued for the person they are, and the gifts they bring to our mission.

We believe in structuring a caring environment that encourages personal freedom and responsibility for all.

We believe in a holistic approach that allows for the development of the individual to grow in all aspects of their personal life.

We believe that quality education ensures positive structures that allow for effective teaching and learning approaches.

Our History

St Monica's has a rich history behind its community, stemming from the opening in 1892.

St Monica's Catholic Primary was established in 1892 by the Sisters of Mercy. It consisted of a small lean-to at the back of the Sacristy. The first Pastor was Fr James Joseph Mahoney, who supported the sisters in their work and guided the Parish through its first year.

In 1918 the first of the school buildings was erected, and in 1955 extra buildings were added.

By 1971, the school's enrolment had increased to 475 and another building was erected to expand the school site.

In 2010 a new building project was completed, including the construction of open learning areas and the installation of contemporary technology to support learning.

St Monica's continues to evolve in order to meet the learning needs of our students and we look to the future with excitement and hope.
