St Clare’s is a co-educational Catholic School nestled in the heart of Officer and is part of St Patrick’s Parish in Pakenham. Established in 2015, St Clare’s has a rapidly growing enrolment. The school is on site with the Parish Early Learning Centre and the Officer campus of St Francis Xavier College thus providing a one-stop facility for those in our catchment area.
In 2015, our inaugural year, St Clare’s School brought together 92 students from a diverse range of sixteen ethnic backgrounds and over fifty educational settings. This enrolment is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years and peak at over seven hundred.
Being part of a caring, faith filled community instils our students with a sense of identity, a feeling of belonging and above all, a powerful sense of self-worth.
At St Clare’s, we measure achievement not only through learning successes, but by the emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing of our students. We value excellence and expect our students to achieve their personal best in all they do.
The purpose-built facilities include learning centres specifically designed for the developmental needs of the individual. Each area is spacious, bright and well-resourced to meet the needs of the 21st Century learner.
The school strives to create an environment of mutual respect and support among staff, parents and students and to maintain the flexibility and open-mindedness required to deal with a constantly changing educational environment.
