Established in 1859 by Archbishop Polding, St Monica's Primary is one of the earliest Catholic learning communities to be founded in New South Wales. St Monica is patron of mothers and womanhood. Her love of God and family is a love that we strive to live out in our school's Vision and Mission.
Over the years St Monica’s has seen many changes, with new buildings and upgrades to ensure our students receive a contemporary Catholic learning experience. More...

Stage 1 visited Brewongle Education Centre. Levi from Stage 1 told us a little about his day ... Stage 1 went bird-watching walk and were very excited to use binoculars to look closely at the birds they saw. They also were able to touch a Blue Tongue Lizard....Very brave!! The students sat around the campfire and listened to the Dreamtime Story of how the Blue Wren (Muruduwin) got his colours and painted their faces with various coloured ochre to follow the story. They also learnt about the traditional custodians of the land - the Dharug people. What an exciting day of learning!

We opened our Yarning Circle with a traditional smoking ceremony led by Aunty Julie, a darug elder and blessed by Father Gayan. We hope our yarning circle will always be a place where stories are shared, new friendships are made, and old friendships are healed and strengthened.

Look at what our wonderful gardeners have been up to! Lots of little hands have worked together to grow this great collection of vegetables. Keep an eye out for how you can get your hands on our tasty beetroot, eggplant, corn, chillies, tomatoes, cucumber and herbs. We will be selling them fresh from the garden before the end of term 💚
