The right of parents to choose an education in conformity with their religious faith must be absolutely guaranteed.
The State and the Church have the obligation to give families all possible aid to enable them to perform their educational role properly. Therefore both the Church and the State must create and foster the institutions and activities that families justly demand, and the aid must be in proportion to the families’ needs. However, those in society who are in charge of schools must never forget that the parents have been appointed by God Himself as the first and principal educators of their children and that their right is completely inalienable.
But corresponding to their right, parents have a serious duty to commit themselves totally to a cordial and active relationship with the teachers and the school authorities.
Familiaris Consortio, no 40.
Our Parish has two Primary Schools catering for the needs of Parish Familes.
St Kevin’s School Hampton Park
120 Hallam Road
Phone: 9702 8177
At St Kevin’s, we view the education of your child as a partnership – a joint responsibility between the school and home. Our programs are linked to each child’s personal ability, and not simply age expectation. Each and every child will progress developmentally according to his or her interest in learning, ability and potential to learn, the skills developed and the encouragement, support and assistance provided by teachers and families. We will strive to provide a happy, supportive and secure learning environment. We shall keep you informed on school life, interviews, information nights and other opportunities as they arise by way of the School newsletter.
St Francis de Sales Lynbrook

At St. Francis de Sales we encourage students to embrace opportunities and to take responsibility for themselves and their learning. Every student will be empowered to become a lifelong learner, able to adapt to the challenges of a rapidly changing world and to commit to authentic action for justice and the common good.
