Principal’s Address

Welcome to Clairvaux Catholic School. In partnership with the Parish Priest, Parents and other members of the community, our school provides students, as  they grow and develop, with a high quality education that equips them with the spiritual foundations, knowledge, skills  and attributes that they need to participate in and contribute to society.                                                                                  At Clairvaux we place much emphasis on Wellbeing within a framework of Positive Psychology in Education which goes  far beyond our traditional Pastoral Care model.  We strongly believe that the future of our students depends upon what  we do today.                                                                                                                                                The quality of teaching and learning at Clairvaux meets the highest standards set by Government and Catholic  authorities. The school actively sets and regularly reviews its goals for supporting student learning. Although ours is a  regional parish primary school we meet our responsibility to prepare young people for their future in a global society.  This requires us to adopt new technologies and new teaching techniques within a rapidly changing environment to ensure  that our students are well prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century. We aim to give all students the ability to use  information and communication technologies appropriately and with discernment. We help them to develop creative and  critical thinking skills and to acquire the ability to work both cooperatively and independently.                                      Within the context of the things that we value as a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Melbourne, we encourage each  student to develop the attributes of a lifelong learner.
