Our teachers know their students and work with them to help them realise their potential as learners. Our focus on authentic learning and authentic assessment ensures that we challenge our students to grow in their learning and achieve their personal best.

Throughout our community of Sydney Catholic schools, we have shown high performance of our students in measures such as NAPLAN and the HSC.

At St Therese Catholic Primary School Padstow our gifted and talented students are offered opportunities to explore their areas of strength in the form of competitions and tournaments such as NSW University Mathematics, English, Spelling, Science and Digital Technologies, Christmas Art Competition, Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workshops and many more.

Many of our students have progressed through to regional and state representative teams in a wide variety of sports including; basketball, swimming, athletics, softball and cricket.

Our students also have opportunities to participate in performing arts with specialist teachers who conduct weekly lessons, as well as additional participation in Dance Fever, the annual Talent Quest and dance workshops.
