About our school

Siena Catholic Primary School opened its doors in 2017 with just one building, starting with 72 students. Now in its sixth year we have 240 students and 33 passionate staff. We have 4 buildings which boast inviting and interactive learning spaces. Our facilities continue to grow and develop with our school population.

Our learning spaces share operable doors between classrooms providing the option to work collaboratively with other classes. We have an amphitheatre, breakout booths and several smaller spaces for student groups to work together or autonomously. iPads are provided to our junior students, (F-Yr 2), while our middle and senior students (Yrs 3-6) enjoy using their own laptop which helps to prepare them for secondary school.

Our large outdoor play space caters for all interests in children; sport on the synthetic turf using the basketball/netball rings and soccer nets, two playgrounds and sand pits, hop-scotch and down ball courts, mud kitchen, community school gardens and compost area, a lush grass area for quieter play and quiet seating.

As a Catholic school we pride ourselves on inclusion of all. St Catherine of Siena provides our school community with an outstanding role model as we flourish in a faith based educational community. All Siena students know the 3 B’s: Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be Responsible. These were derived from the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support program. A framework for preventing and responding to student behaviour, SWPBS promotes a positive school climate, a culture of student competence and an open, responsive management system for all.

Principal's Message

Thank you for your interest in Siena Catholic Primary School as a possible school for your children. At Siena, our Strategic Cultures drive our ongoing desire to offer the best possible education for the students in our care. As such we aim to be highly effective and learning progressive, aiming to have the students of Siena as active partners in their learning in collaboration with staff, parents and community.

We offer an extensive curriculum which includes Religious Education. We are committed to our culture of extraordinary care and therefore to strategies to promote wellbeing throughout our community.

Good luck with your decision making and if you desire we look forward to partnering with you in the education of your children.
