Principal's Welcome to St Lawrence's Primary School

Bluff Point

My name is David Tunchon and along with the staff, I’m delighted to welcome you to St Lawrence’s Primary School, Geraldton. At St Lawrence’s we are proud to offer an education that is imbedded in the values and traditions of the Catholic Church within the charisms of the religious orders who have come before us – the Presentation Sisters and the Sisters of Nazareth.

With our motto ‘Love and Serve the Lord’, we work to ensure that each person is supported in their endeavours to show love to all through service in, and around our community.

​Our vision statement, ‘With Christ as our model, we seek to nurture our community in an environment that enables all to grow’ gives voice to our yearning for justice, compassion and inclusivity.

At the heart of our school ethos is the Fruit of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).

It is my vision to ensure the development of the whole child with Christ at the centre of their existence. Children will develop skills and attitudes in order to become active, capable and responsible members of Australian society and the surrounding world whilst developing fundamental academic and social skills. Children have the right to the best available education, where staff members together, are responsible for the education of all children at our school.
