It gives me great pleasure to be the foundational principal of Mother Teresa Catholic Primary School. I feel humbled and proud to commence the journey together with students, staff, families and parish in the Northern Territory Catholic Education Diocese. It is very exciting to be part of a school community that will together build the foundations of success for our present students and those who attend in the future.
We are a Catholic school that is inspired by the gospel teachings of Jesus Christ. Our values have a strong focus on Faith, Love, Compassion, Community, Hope and Joy. We are committed to strong school and home partnerships and encourage parents to be active partners’ in their child’s education.
Mother Teresa Catholic Primary School in Zuccoli, welcomes students from Early Learning to Year 2, starting in 2018. In 2019, the next stage of the school will offer places through to Year 6. Our school is part of the Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Palmerston. As one of the newest schools in the Northern Territory Catholic Diocese, we are committed to providing an authentic, quality Catholic Education by promoting a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment.
Our educational program embraces gospel values whilst catering for the academic, spiritual, physical, social and emotional needs of each student. We look to our patroness Mother Teresa, as an example of ways in which we can give life meaning, direction and purpose, just as Jesus showed us.
We provide an inclusive curriculum that supports, encourages and challenges individual student development. Our school has been built with 21st Century contemporary learning spaces that allow students to learn in innovative, flexible and engaging ways as a community of learners. The integration of modern technology into the curriculum is used to support the learning process.
Our school consists of a culturally rich and diverse cohort of students and families from across the world. We believe that together we can, “Do small things with great love” to ensure the education, development and formation of our students. Our aim is to teach our students to reach out to the wider community and to make a difference to the lives of others.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our students and families and pray that together we can build a strong faith community and educational foundation for our students to succeed today and in the future.
