Welcome to St Aidan's Catholic Primary School at Rooty Hill.
On behalf of everyone at St Aidan’s, I extend to you a warm welcome to our community! I hope that this handbook will be of assistance to you, the parents of our children.
Our school is the parish school of St Aidan’s Parish in Rooty Hill. We recognise each child as being unique and formed in the image of God. We are a school community which fosters a friendly, trusting collaboration between school, parish and parents for the ongoing development and benefit of each child.
Our school provides a wonderful learning environment based on diverse learning activities, initiated and facilitated by a team of caring and dedicated education professionals, and supported by parental involvement.
I invite you to continue your fundamental role as first educator of your children. The staff aim to work in partnership with you and encourage you to be an active participant in the school activities.
I pray that God will bless our time together at St Aidan’s. I pray also that it will be a time full of happiness, caring and support for each other as we focus upon the learning and development of your child, in a truly Catholic atmosphere of love and concern for each individual.
We aim to provide a quality education for the 21st Century. New approaches and skills are emerging for lifelong learning and we will ensure that the best possible emphasis is given to improving each child’s learning, so that they are successful learners ready to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
I wish you and your family a very happy and rewarding association with our St Aidan’s community of learners.
Best wishes for the year ahead.
