From the Principal


Welcome to St Francis of Assisi Catholic School at Newton...

St Francis of Assisi is a school where we value each child as a successful learner, embrace their abilities, and lead them to realise their own identity and potential. Here, children are at the centre of everything we do. We consider your child’s education and wellbeing a shared responsibility – from me as the Principal, to the teachers and all the support team members because we believe learning happens best when a child’s wellbeing is nurtured in a happy, safe environment.

Our vision is to prepare our students for a dynamic future. Through our literacy and numeracy focussed curriculum, facilities including a STEM room, music and sporting programs, and specialist programs such as Children’s University, we inspire creativity and curiosity. We believe the power to change the world is in the hands of our children of today and that is why we stimulate an exploratory mindset with real-world applications integrated across the whole curriculum. 

The best way to experience our school is to join us for a tour of our school grounds, speak with students about their learning, and experience the inclusive learning environment of St Francis of Assisi. Tours are available at any time by appointment, or you can join one of our group tours.


If you find you have any questions relating to our school, enrolment or being a part of the St Francis community, please don't hesitate to contact our friendly staff through the School Office.  They'll be pleased to speak with you.
