Our School Community
Good relationships and clear communication are essential to success, so everyone is invited to be involved in the life of the school.
Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) works throughout the year to raise funds for the school, and we greatly value this support.
The St. Thomas Community Action Partnerships (St. Thomas CAPs), extends out into our local community, making local businesses and local residents aware of the school, and its place in the community it serves.
Throughout the year our children are involved in several charity fund-raising events for other children less fortunate than themselves. We are proud of the level of support our children give to others.
Each class is represented on our School Council, which meets weekly. Items of interest or concern are discussed and debated, and all children and parents are informed of the outcomes.
St. Thomas Primary School will be inspected, like all schools in the country, on a regular cycle. Inspections in the past noted:
