Principal’s Welcome

Marcus Gill – Principal of St Thomas the Apostle, Blackburn

Welcome To St Thomas the Apostle, Blackburn

Welcome to St Thomas the Apostle Primary School, Blackburn Website. My name is Marcus Gill, and as the Principal, l look forward to working with you in partnership along with your child’s teacher to support your child on their educational journey.

St Thomas the Apostle is a Catholic Primary School and is part of St Thomas the Apostle Parish in Blackburn. The Catholic philosophy is the foundation of all of our policies and programs, providing students with opportunities to develop spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically and academically.

As a father of three children it is my wish that their school and educational experience is a positive one. I would like my own children to be respectful, accepting of others, care for others and their environment and display Gospel values in their everyday life. I want my children to be the most effective learners that they can possibly be and to continually show growth in all areas of the curriculum.

These aspirations for my own children reflect the vision l have for every student who walks through the gates at St Thomas’. As the Principal l am passionate about and dedicated to the students at St Thomas’ achieving higher standards and having every opportunity to achieve this through inspired learning and teaching.

St Thomas’ is a dynamic learning community where students are challenged to recognise and realise their potential with our caring, dedicated and professional staff.

Our school offers a broad, engaging and comprehensive curriculum with a strong emphasis on academic excellence and building quality relationships.

At St Thomas’ our students are at the centre of all that we do. We have a strong commitment to providing a safe and harmonious school environment where successful relationships thrive. Our strength lies in the close partnerships between students, staff, parents and the wider community which is highly valued by us all.

It is a great privilege to be Principal of St Thomas the Apostle. We have a proud tradition of providing a very high standard of education. I warmly welcome you to our school and trust that you will experience the friendly, community spirit that is special at St Thomas’.
