Our School

Our Staff

JUNIOR TEAM 

We are the Junior team! Together we aim to support our students in making a smooth transition into school life. We value the relationships and connections with our community and enjoy working together to help each child reach their full potential. We are passionate about creating an environment that fosters a love of learning in our young students.

MIDDLE TEAM

We are the Middle Team.  We focus on consolidating positive relationships between students to build a strong collaborative learning environment, as well as developing independence as learners.

SENIOR TEAM 

The Seniors are striving towards developing independence through a self sufficient home and school routine. This is imperative to prepare the Year 6’s for a smooth secondary school transition. We are currently working with Berry Street to help guide us to develop better self regulation strategies so we are able to identify and equip our students to have greater emotional regulation and be fully engaged in learning.

SPECIALIST TEAM

Our Specialist team is made up of a passionate group of staff who enrich the students learning experience through language, art, music, library, literature and physical education.

Hi, I’m Katherine and I’m the specialist classroom music teacher at St. Monica’s. I love sharing my passion for music with students and believe that music is a language that everyone should be able to speak!

Hi, I’m Stevie and I’m the specialist Physical Education teacher at St. Monica’s. I have a real passion for being active, especially running,  It is really exciting being part of the teaching team at St. Monica’s! I feel very lucky to share my passion for being active because it is such a great way to support all aspects of wellbeing and is such a powerful tool for learning.

Hi my name is Sandra and I am of Italian background. I have been teaching for more than 20 years, in roles as a class and specialist teacher. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share my passion of both the Italian language and culture as a co-curricular subject with Visual Arts. This is my second year teaching at St. Monica’s and I already feel a strong sense of belonging in a community which promotes connectedness, respect and feeling valued. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, gardening and travelling.

Hi, I’m Anne. Digital Technology is my field and I love learning curriculum area with the children. It has to be the most fun subject on the planet!

 

ADMINISTRATION TEAM

Anna and Ha run the school.  They play such an important role in our community as the first point of contact for parents, visitors and all who connect with us. 

They are holders of advanced First Aid qualifications and when our children are hurt or unwell this team takes very good care of them.  Ha has an important role in creating and supporting links with our parent community. She is also responsible for paying accounts. Anna is the newest member of the team and comes with a broad knowledge of finance and human resources. One of her most important responsibilities is making sure our Child Safety processes are being followed.

Together this team works incredibly hard behind the scenes so that the teaching staff can focus on the learning and teaching. We couldn’t do what we do without them.
