St Clare’s has been established to serve children and their families in the Truganina area as a faith-filled, Christ-centred, welcoming and caring educational community. The St Clare’s community is committed to recognising and affirming the gifts and talents of others, celebrating diversity and embracing difference. St Clare’s Catholic Primary School is situated within the Allura Estate, Truganina South. We are approximately 19km west of the city of Melbourne. Construction of the school commenced in early March 2014 and was completed by end of 2014, ready for opening at the start of the school year in 2015. The next stage of our school was completed by the end of 2016 in time for the 2017 school year. In 2018 our Australian Rules football oval and our soccer / rugby pitch were completed. In 2020, we completed the Stage 3 building of our school. The new facility comprise learning areas for 6 homegroups on the first floor. At ground level there is a multi purpose resource centre that includes a library area and a specialist learning area for visual arts. This year 2021, we have approximately 410 students.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Friends,

It is with much excitement and enthusiasm that we continue our journey together at St Clare's Catholic Primary School. We currently have approximately 410 students and 50 staff members in 2021.

St Clare's Catholic Primary School will continue to promote a contemporary approach to learning and teaching which cultivates rich and authentic learning experiences inspired by Gospel values.

There remains a strong emphasis on developing community. We keenly want to work in partnership with parents and families to provide the best possible Catholic education for our students. As a result parents and families are most welcome to join us in our journey. I am greatly appreciative and thankful for the many parents and family members who work in partnership with us in a variety of ways.

We have a highly skilled and dedicated staff to provide for the needs of our students, parents and the wider school community. I would like to thank them for their efforts and the ongoing contributions to our school.

I would also like to thank all those who support St Clare's Catholic Primary School. A special mention to our wonderful parish priest, Fr Jude and the wider St James Parish team who have been integral to our success.

As Principal, I continue to commit my leadership to working closely with parents and families of the school and the local community to ensure our students reach their potential. We ask for God's blessings as we continue our journey.

St Clare, pray for us.

Kind regards

Andrew Leighton
