Principal's Welcome

Our Lady Star of the Sea is pleased to welcome you to our beautiful new school.

Selecting a school that recognises the uniqueness of each child and is able to meet the needs of your child is an important investment in your child’s future. As you are the first educator of your child we look to work in partnership as your child continues their educational journey.

Our Lady Star of the Sea exists to provide students with a Catholic education based on the Gospels and teachings of Christ. Our school is an important part of the Catholic Church’s mission. We strive to build a community that offers a warm and welcoming environment to families while at the same time providing a quality and holistic education. As our Vision statement states Our Lady Star of the Sea is welcoming and open to all who seek a Catholic Education.

At Our Lady Star of the Sea, we aim to foster a sense of stewardship for the natural environment and promote global citizenship. This will be underpinned by Catholic Social Teaching and expert teacher practice to enact the Victorian curriculum to ensure a progression of learning for all children.
