Our teachers know their students and work with them to help them realise their potential as learners. Our focus on authentic learning and authentic assessment ensures that we challenge our students to grow in their learning and achieve their personal best.

Throughout our community of Sydney Catholic schools, we have shown high performance of our students in measures such as NAPLAN and the HSC.

We pride ourselves on catering to the diverse needs of every student. This is achieved through data-informed, differentiated learning which is driven by the teachers confidently getting to know each of their students. Academic achievements have been highlighted through participation in our whole school Newman Gifted Education) projects amongst other opportunities.

Several children at Fr John Therry Catholic Primary School have achieved recent sporting success at representative levels in swimming, AFL, soccer and athletics.

Success is regularly achieved in the creative and performing arts arena by many of our students.
