At St Gerard’s, we all work together to achieve quality learning within a positive school environment, which we believe, is essential for a successful education.
Making the decision about your child’s future education and wellbeing is a very important one so it is essential to find out about the school and its community.
St Gerard’s is a faith community and as such promotes a Christ-centred education. We do this in partnership with parents and parish. Our focus is inspired by our school motto, “Growing in Wisdom and Faith”, which draws from our Mercy values and tradition. A strong sense of partnership is evident in our school and is strengthened by the level of parental engagement and the great spirit of hospitality shown by children, staff and fellow parents. At St Gerard’s, teachers and students work together to create a positive and supportive school, which we believe adds to a successful learning environment.
Under strong leadership, St Gerard’s is clearly focused on quality teaching and learning. The school provides a well balanced, comprehensive and engaging curriculum, which gives all children the opportunity to become life-long learners. English and Mathematics are given time priority each day and each classroom is equipped with a range of technology to meet the needs of contemporary learners. A variety of programs are available to support student interests and learning needs. Students are provided with the opportunity to participate in Choir, Chess, Band, Maths Olympiad, Science Challenge, Public Speaking and Representative Sports.
