St Thomas' Primary School, Terang, is situated in a dairy farming community in south-west Victoria. St Thomas' School was originally established in 1907 under the direction of the Sisters of Mercy.
St Thomas' School is a Catholic educational community focusing on the development of the whole child within a global society. Our school presents Christ to pupils and proclaims life with God. Christ therefore is the teaching centre, the model on whom the Christian shapes his/her life. At St Thomas' School we present a diverse and comprehensive curriculum.
All subjects and domains are taught using an integrated inquiry approach. The inquiry process develops skills and dispositions for life-long learning: independence, thinking skills, decision-making and co-operative learning. We provide students with opportunities to work independently and interdependently so that they are equipped in becoming self-managing and self-monitoring life-long learners.
Our parent community is actively involved in school life. It is a priority for our community of staff, students and parents to work collaboratively so that the greatest possible growth can occur.
