Dear Parents and Caregivers,
A very warm welcome to the Corpus Christi School family.
The school was established in 1987 by the Sisters of Mercy for the Catholic Education Office Parramatta.
From three classes (two Kindergarten and one Year One), the school’s capacity has grown to twenty-one classes and almost six hundred children, catering for Kindergarten to Year Six children.
Our purpose as a Catholic Primary School in the Cranebrook community, is to provide a learning environment where all members feel welcomed, cared for and supported. In this way, we will communicate the message of God’s love for all people through our actions and example.
We draw our values from the teachings of Jesus Christ as lived through our Catholic tradition, and as such stress the following:
- love and forgiveness as a foundation for effective learning, quality relationships and personal growth.
- honest, open communication leading to justice in everyday interactions
- the uniqueness of each person, acceptance of each other, and celebration of differences
- a learning environment which nurtures independent, discerning and critical thinkers.
This is an exciting and significant point in your child’s life and the beginning of your relationship with Corpus Christi at Cranebrook. A relationship that will deepen and grow along with your child’s religious, academic and social development.
On behalf of the staff, Fr George O’Mara and the entire school community, we welcome you to Corpus Christi.
It is our vision that your association with our school community be full of happy memories and wonderful experiences that support your wishes and child’s educational life.
Yours in education,
