St Therese's School is situated in Essendon, an established residential north western suburb of Melbourne.
Archbishop Mannix officially opened the Church on March 11th,1923 and the school opened for 30 pupils on April 9th, 1923. The Parish was first named St Teresa's after St Teresa of Avila, until St Therese, the Little Flower was beatified on March 17th, 1925. After this, the Parish came under the patronage of St Therese. 2012 will see the Parish celebrate its 90th anniversary.
Our present student population, as at February 2012, is 533. The school currently comprises 21 classes - three classes of each year level. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards installed, and all rooms have school computer network access..
At present there are approximately 40 staff when all part and full time staff are considered. These include classroom teachers, specialists, aides, administration staff and our school psychologist. The staff work and plan co-operatively and place considerable effort on being involved in curriculum development.
Playground space is divided into three areas – a main playground area, a smaller junior playground and an area comprised of three all weather tennis courts that are utilised as play space during school hours.
Parent involvement in the school is encouraged. Parents participate in the school in many ways, both formally, through representation on the Board and Committees, and informally, through assistance both inside and outside the classroom. The school operates a School Board, a Parents and Friends Committee, a Family Support Group, an Out of School Hours Program, Parent Class Representatives and a Tuckshop Committee.
Steeped in history, St Therese's School Essendon is one of the popular school in the Essendon area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
