Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to St Kieran’s Catholic Primary, Manly Vale. Your child will find our school a place of friendship, joy, discovery, challenge and learning.

Our dedicated and committed staff at St Kieran’s are aware of the special privilege they share with you in the education of your child’s heart and mind.  We work together with you to enable your child to develop their full potential spiritually, intellectually, social, emotionally and physically.

Our faith and values underpins our school community. The teachings of the Gospels guide everything we do.

Our motto “To Learn and to Love” is a source of strength and guidance for our school. We are committed to excellence in learning and building quality relationships. The values of community, compassion, respect and cooperation are the foundations on which our relationships are built.

Innovative learning across a diverse range of subjects and extra-curricular activities

St Kieran’s students love the breadth of the curriculum and enriching choice of extra curricular activities that we provide. Your child will enjoy a comprehensive curriculum that engages them in real and relevant learning experiences. We are a two-stream school where the benefit of smaller year groups enables our teachers to meet the needs of all students.

Creating future leaders

Year 6 students take part in a strong leadership program in which every child has a leadership role. Our Year 6 leadership program is renowned for the way it prepares students for high school, giving them opportunities to make a difference within the school and wider community.

Students leave our school empowered to be responsible and committed young people with confidence in their future endeavours. St Kieran’s students are passionate about social justice, confident in speaking up for others and resilient enough to have their own voice.

St Kieran’s graduates are given preferred entry to some of the most sought-after independent and Catholic high schools in the area. We are dedicated to helping your child reach their potential to prepare him or her as best we can for high school.

I look forward to welcoming you to St Kieran’s and invite you to join our Friday Morning School Tours by contacting us on 02 7256 2131 or
