Principal's Message

Welcome to St Nicholas of Myra Primary, Penrith, and thank you for visiting our website. As a school community we strive to grow in the likeness of Christ.

At St Nicholas of Myra, we believe that the Gospel values are essential for our school to be an effective place of quality learning for each individual, and therefore, we rely on our school community to support us in strengthening our Catholic beliefs through both word and action. Our school motto is ‘Truth Through Learning’. Truth in our faith is at the heart of our five core values:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Cooperation
  • Compassion
  • Justice

Our school seeks to be rich in life, love and learning for all those entrusted to our care. We value working in partnership with parents to ensure that children grow in an environment that is both secure and challenging. We are committed to providing a school where children feel happy, safe and cared for. We want them to be engaged in their learning so as to become responsible and successful individuals in a technological and global society.

At St Nicholas of Myra, we acknowledge that parents and carers are the first educators of their child. Together in partnership, we are able to assist your child to grow spiritually, academically, emotionally, behaviourally, physically, and socially. Our joint priorities are to ensure your child is able to grow in a secure, yet challenging environment.
