Welcome to the 2020 school year at St James Primary School Vermont.
To the families who are beginning their association with our parish, I extend a special welcome. Our school is part of St John’s Parish Mitcham and we hope that your association with our community will be a very happy and rewarding one.
At St James, we strive to live out our Vision. We aim to promote within our students, indeed all our community members, a love for learning. Our concern at St James is to educate the whole person. The religious, social, academic, physical and emotional aspects of our students are vitally important and we endeavour to have each child reach their potential. As part of a strong, vibrant Parish community, we strive to ensure our faith is nourished. The values of the Gospel are the mainspring of all we do. We hope there is a strong sense of belonging for each member of our community.
Our staff are highly professional, dedicated, motivated and committed to the task of supporting each student. We acknowledge also that parents make a vital and valuable contribution to the education of their child/ren and to this end we wish to work closely in partnership with you in the education of your child. Together we aim to deliver an education of the highest quality.
We invite parents to be involved in the life of our parish knowing that this involvement will assist in maximising educational outcomes for our children. My door is always open to discuss, share and contribute ideas, possibilities or concerns!
I hope that 2020 will be a wonderful year for our school community, and I look forward to working closely with you.
