Principal's Message

Welcome to Corpus Christi Primary School, situated in Cranebrook, one of the northern suburbs of Penrith, and is part of a system of schools in the Diocese of Parramatta.

Our school was established in 1987 by the Sisters of Mercy and from its humble beginnings it has grown from just three classes, to be a school that currently has 21 classes catering for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. The school works in partnership with the Parish of Corpus Christi.

Our relationships are based on the Gospel values of love, respect, trust and inclusion at all points of interaction. We strive to promote positive, constructive and open dialogue between students, parents, staff and pastor.

At Corpus Christi we work within a faith community that supports each person's search for meaning within the Catholic tradition, through liturgy, prayer and celebrations. We also follow the Diocesan Religious Education document, Sharing Our Story, which provides guidance for the formal faith education with content and strategies that are age appropriate for every primary grade.

Our teachers are professional educators committed to the development of the whole child. We have a learning environment that allows each student to be empowered and challenged as they communicate with truth, clarity and integrity, and learn about their ever-growing and changing world. We strive to provide a safe, harmonious and effective environment that is conducive to quality learning and teaching, and our classroom spaces are vibrant, organised and stimulating. Our facilities have undergone a recent renovation program and the children have access to stunning, modern learning spaces that complement the extensive recreation and sporting areas.

Our leadership is distributive, collaborative and values-based. We provide opportunities for students and teachers to lead across a variety of areas.

Our learning community allows all students to grow into the person that they were born to be. I invite you to view our website and visit us personally at the school to see us in action
