About our school

St Thomas More’s Catholic Primary School is in Mt Eliza on the Mornington Peninsula. The school was established in 1981 and is an integral part of the St Thomas More Parish community. We recognise the strength of our vibrant community which is enriched by the partnerships between staff, parents, students and parish. We firmly believe that school communities are most effective when teachers, staff and parents work together to educate the whole child, emotionally, academically, physically, socially and spiritually.

St Thomas More Primary School is set within a natural bushland setting which provides a uniquely beautiful learning environment for our students. School facilities include dedicated Prep, Junior, Middle and Senior blocks where classrooms are spacious, bright and welcoming. In addition to these, the school has a STEM (Science, Technology. Engineering, Mathematics) room, a well-stocked library, a recently renovated multi-purpose area, a visual arts area and music room. A state-of-the-art gymnasium is used for PE, school assemblies and other special events. Students are blessed with extensive grounds that provide excellent spaces for outdoor learning, fitness and play.

At St Thomas More we strive to provide the best possible education for every student, within a Catholic framework. Through our learning and teaching programs students are encouraged to become resilient and independent learners who question, reflect, take risks, critique, analyse and act. Teaching programs are personalised to meet the needs of individual students and are based on the rigorous and consistent use of student data to ensure maximum growth for every student.
