St Margaret’s primary School is a Catholic co-educational primary school in East Geelong, Victoria, with approximately 190 children from Prep to Year 6. Our caring and dedicated staff are committed to sharing their passion for learning with the students.
Our Catholic identity is enhanced by strengthening the integration of faith, life and culture, inviting students to discover God’s presence in their daily lives and engaging them in Catholic teaching. In this way they may grow in understanding of themselves and their world in light of the Gospel and be empowered to take responsibility for themselves and for creating a just society.
The student is at the heart of all arrangements for teaching and learning at St Margaret’s School. A contemporary learning approach is personalised, responding to the learning needs, interests and experiences of each student. Contemporary learning is designed to empower students with the knowledge, skills and capacities to respond creatively to the challenges of their world. It provides rigorous, relevant and purposeful learning opportunities, supported by explicit teaching. Contemporary and emerging technologies support students to make connections beyond the school, engaging with diverse perspectives and collaborative learning opportunities, developing deep understandings of themselves, others and the world.
At St Margaret’s we strive to provide a learning environment that is safe, flexible, inclusive and fosters collaboration and creativity. Our student wellbeing program engenders a climate of mutual respect and responsibility where students develop a sense of belonging and attachment to school.
St Margaret’s School endeavours to continue the great work of those who came before us as we build on the story of Catholic education in the community of East Geelong.
