School Community

School Community

"It takes a Village to Raise a Child" (African proverb)

St Thomas the Apostle is a welcoming and inclusive school. The sense of community is an important and proud element of our school. We appreciate and encourage parents to build partnerships between school and home and become active participants in their children’s education.

The Education Board has a responsibility to uphold and promote Catholic Teaching and a Christian way of life within the school community


The Education Board is an advisory body, providing a structure for discussion and policy development with specific reference to St Thomas’. The Board is responsible for seeing that the school is faithful to its charter as a Catholic school.


The School Board aims to:

  • support the provision of Catholic education in the Parish by providing a link to the school community.
  • act as a forum for discussion on matters concerning education in the school.
  • promote the role of community in the life of the school.
