We will share all project updates shared with our school and parish communities on this page.
Education in the eastern suburbs is about to change with the reimagining of three Catholic schools into state-of-the-art, innovative centres for contemporary learning.
On 4 May 2022, Tony Farley Executive Director of Sydney Catholic Schools, school principal Rosemary Andre, Dr Jacqueline Frost Chief of Staff, and Dr Edmond Maher Director of System Performance, announced the new primary school name and timeframe to staff and parents.
The new primary school will be called Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School and will be operational from the commencement of 2023.
This news was shared with the school communities through an all staff briefing, and an evening information session for parents. The evening information session was held at St Agnes’ Catholic Primary School Hall and live streamed via the primary school websites. Thank you to all parents and staff who joined us.
Feedback and questions have been received from those attending in person as well as through an online survey. We are currently reviewing this feedback and will share highlights and further information in due course.
On 12 November 2020, Tony Farley, Executive Director of Sydney Catholic Schools and the principals from Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Primary School Pagewood, St Agnes’ Catholic Primary School Matraville, and Champagnat Catholic College Pagewood launched the exciting news of the Pagewood-Matraville Master Plan to the community.
Thank you to those who attended and actively participated in the session by submitting questions. Read the responses to every question submitted during the webinar.
243 attendees joined us for this webinar. 60% of attendees identified as parents, 10% were staff from the three schools, and parishioners from St Agnes and Our Lady of the Annunciation parishes constituted 3% of attendees. The balance was staff from other SCS schools or from head office. Attendees’ key interests elicited from the polls, exit survey and webinar were in the areas of learning approaches, curricula and co-curricular opportunities and the management of change/transitions for students and staff. Overall, most attendees at the webinar were excited about the master plan and what it represents for our schools and community.
