About Us

Principal’s Welcome

An ethos of deep learning and academic challenge

Real world learning and academic opportunity are just the start of what’s on offer here at St Thomas Catholic School, Willoughby.

We want children to come to school full of joy at being here – and that’s what we see reflected every day in every classroom. St Thomas students genuinely enjoy school because of our rich breadth of activities and project based learning approach.

Children dive into interests as diverse as producing movies, sport clubs, website design, music, coding and sustainability. Teachers guide their students through each project, giving them the space to discover their talents and build a meaningful connection to learning.

Years 5 and 6 enjoy exclusive activities for senior students and in Year 6, every student has a leadership role.

A faith-filled community

St Thomas’ success is built upon our dynamic, faith-filled community who bring our Catholic values to life. When you join our school, you become part of a warm network of families who come together to help each other, the neighbourhood and our school.

St Thomas is a school where your child and your family will be known and valued. Local families choose us because we have a tangible, caring community with plenty of social events to connect with each other, including our annual Art and Craft Show.

Families of many faiths enjoy education at St Thomas. Children from all culture and backgrounds are welcome in our school and contribute to our focus on inclusive global learning.

I look forward to welcoming you to the school and invite you to book a tour by contacting us on 02 9958 7308 or stw@dbb.catholic.edu.au
