Message from the Principal

Dear Parents,

Andrew Greco

On behalf of the staff, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all children and parents of the school, and also to those beginning at Columba Catholic Primary School. I am extremely proud and honoured to be this wonderful school's Principal and cherish the opportunity to assist in the development of our most precious resource - our children. 

I know that our school provides an environment of positivity, openness and love where each child’s innate creativity and ability to learn and grow is nurtured. We are a family orientated school with a current enrolment of approximately 200 students. At Columba Primary School each child is valued and encouraged to reach their full potential. Just as each child is an individual with their own character and needs, so too their educational growth is unique. The teachers are committed to nurturing and developing the ability of each child through carefully planned and innovative teaching programs. 

Columba has a strong Prep Orientation program and welcomes parents to come and learn more about our wonderful school. For families of children commencing school in the near future, I invite you and your child to come and observe our team of students and teachers in action, and see firsthand the many ways in which Columba can provide an excellent education for your child. School tours are available at 9:15am upon appointment, which can be made through our office at office@bunyip.catholic.edu.au or 56295933.

Columba is a safe place for children. They feel safe and secure within the framework of established boundaries and routines. These boundaries and routines create a peaceful and just atmosphere. The children are helped to develop an awareness of their rights and responsibilities and consequences for their actions.

Every day I see a genuine enthusiasm for learning and discovery within Columba. The educational programs are stimulating and progressive. The curriculum is strong, comprehensive and covers all educational areas. The school is well resourced due mainly to the efforts of a highly committed and active team of parents. Columba Primary School staff are enthusiastic highly professional educators and bring a wealth of knowledge and commitment to their crucial task of guiding students towards a fulfilling and productive seven years of primary education. Our students achievements in their learning is a direct result of the dedicated, professional teachers who constantly provide diverse, rich, engaging and outstanding educational programs within an environment which is caring, friendly, respective and responsive to the needs of our students. 

As Principal, my door is always open to parents wishing to discuss their child's progress or anything at all related to the school. I welcome and encourage you to be involved as this is the best way to "be learners for life” and be immersed in what schooling is about today.

I look forward to meeting and working with you all and please know, we welcome all students always regardless on whether you are Catholic or not so please come and visit us any time. If you have time, please embark on a journey through our school throuh our virtual tour below,
