Principal's Welcome

A message from Gina Burns, Principal, St Columba's School, Bayswater.

Welcome to St Columba’s Primary School, Bayswater.

We are a co-educational double stream school providing primary education to approximately 485 children from Pre-Kindergarten to Year Six. The school was established by the Sisters of Mercy in 1936.

Our Mercy Values underpin the culture of our school. Students, staff and parents take pride in keeping this real today. At St Columba’s School, we value the impact each person has on others within our community. We know this to be the most valuable quality to instil in students, in all of us.

The staff, operating within a professional learning culture, are hardworking and committed to providing a high level of quality education and pastoral care for the children. Developing quality and positive relationships are pivotal to our students’ learning and wellbeing. We know our environment embraces our motto of ‘Growing in Faith, Seeking Wisdom and Living in Peace’.

As parents you are the first educators of your child. We are pleased to be chosen to join you in this privileged task. Together we will deliver a Christ-centred and child focused education.

I am truly grateful to be taking on the role of Principal from 2023. Please take the time to look through our website and do not hesitate to contact the office on 9208 2700 or for further information or to book in for a tour.

In gratitude,
Gina Burns.
