Principal’s Message

Thank you for choosing to find out more about All Hallows Catholic Primary School Five Dock.

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the All Hallows Catholic Primary School website. I trust it provides you a window into our welcoming community and to the extraordinary learning environment and many opportunities we can provide for your child.

With a rich history spanning more than a hundred years, our school community espouses to live the values of Jesus Christ. Our charism, which is rooted in the traditions of the Presentation Sisters, and is inspired by their Foundress Nano Nagle, calls us to act in charity and social justice in our lives and learning. It is indeed a privilege to lead a community with strong links to church and wider parish family, and one which embraces people from all backgrounds and promotes true diversity and inclusion. 

We are a Christ-centred community, empowering our learners through the realisation of their individual worth. Our commitment to truly know every child enables us to challenge them at their optimum level to meet their true potential academically, creatively, socially and spiritually. 

As an accredited Newman School, All Hallows is recognised for our commitment to stretch and challenge the academic abilities of more able and gifted students. Our highly valued Amadeus instrumental programme provides students the opportunity to develop a love of music as well as the musical skills that will assist them to thrive as learners.

Our recently renovated facility has been specifically designed to promote a sense of belonging, whilst meeting the needs of all learners through active and relevant learning experiences. At All Hallows, we respect the individuality and achievement of each student and it is our overarching objective for every child to witness their personal worth through authentic opportunities for action to ​make a positive difference in their world. 

Our highly qualified and dedicated staff are committed to supporting and involving families in the learning journey of our students. We value and encourage strong partnerships, linking home and school, to ensure the happiness and success of each and every student. 

As Principal, my goal is to lead a faith-filled learning community that first and foremost protects and nurtures the well-being of every student in our care.  I am truly blessed to guide All Hallows on its continuing journey to excellence. 

I strongly encourage prospective students and families to visit the school in person to experience in person the very special All Hallows community.
I look forward to meeting you.
