Galilee commenced operation as a school in 1994, bringing together four local Catholic primary schools to create one blended school community. The four schools were: Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Middle Park; St Joseph’s, Port Melbourne; St Peter and Paul’s, South Melbourne; and Sacred Heart, St Kilda West.
Galilee was created to serve the educational needs of children in the Bayside area and to ensure that quality Catholic education would be provided both now and well into the 21st century.
The Gospel values of community, hope, justice, faith, peace and reconciliation are an integral part of our school’s faith, culture and teaching. As a Christian family we respect and accept other faiths and cultures and believe that we all have an innate and special worth.
We aim to provide:
A safe environment in which all in our community are given the opportunity to develop their full potential.
A place where strengths and weaknesses are catered for in a supportive and encouraging manner.
- A broad range of opportunities in the key learning areas to cater for the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social, creative and physical needs of each child.
A child centred curriculum, based on the children's own experiences to ensure that programs are developmental, relevant and challenging.
We promote confidence, a love of learning, opportunities for success and the development of life skills. Galilee is where Parishes and the wider community work together in achieving our common goal of educating our children in Christian values, academic and life skills.
We are committed to making this vision a reality.
