The school currently has an enrolment of approximately 285 students. We promote gospel values and develop knowledge and understanding of Catholic faith, doctrine and tradition. We support students to become successful learners, confident individuals and active and informed citizens by providing a comprehensive and inclusive curriculum built on essential skills and authentic contemporary learning which is interactive and innovative, allowing students to think critically, work creatively, analyse information and solve problems.
We cater for individual needs, learning styles, backgrounds, perspectives and interests through art, Japanese, sport, camps and performing arts.
Education in the 21st century is continually changing and at St James we identify ourselves as an innovative and dynamic place of contemporary learning.
We aim to develop positive relationships with all; built upon respect, inclusiveness and pastoral care. We care about every child and family within the school. The development of each child academically, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually is important in equipping them to be outstanding citizens beyond their primary school years.

St Teresa’s School was established by the Sisters of Mercy from the Wilcannia - Forbes Diocese (main city Broken Hill) in 1916.
St Teresa's School was named after St Teresa of Avila who was born in Avila, Spain in 1515. She was a great writer who was able to explain clearly her feelings and thoughts about God. Many of her writings are used today in songs.
The first school room was in a small detached cottage in the convent grounds. From there the school moved into a converted conservatory, which served as a church and school for many years. This building later became known as ‘The Hall’ until demolished in 1983.
The first school classroom was built in 1950 and the next in 1961.
Modifications and up-grading were carried out in 1977 and 1979. During 2005 a major building project was undertaken and has brought the school to its present standing.
The Sisters of Mercy administered and staffed the school until 1976, when the first lay Principal was appointed.
With the rationalisation of schools in the South West Region, St Teresa’s School became a Reception to Year 5 school in 1979.
At St Teresa’s School, we embrace God’s unconditional love within the ordinary circumstances of life in our school community. This fundamental value is evident in our teaching and learning and is revealed in the way we touch the lives of those we meet along the journey.
St Teresa’s School strives to provide a quality education for the 'whole' person - spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically - in a spirit of partnership with families and educators. We celebrate the uniqueness and acknowledge the dignity of each person within our community and encourage them to be the best that they can be. Our Mercy charism calls us to be mercy in action wherever we are.
