At St Helena's provides a strong foundation for students' spiritual, intellectual, social, moral, physical and aesthetic development by providing a supportive and nurturing environment which contributes to each student's sense of self-worth, enthusiasm and optimism for future learning and discovery. It is a faith and learning community, where teachers use their skills, knowledge and experience to address the unique learning needs of each student and to maximise each student's learning opportunities.
We know that the quality of teaching has a direct impact on the learning performance of every student and our aim is to give our children a thirst for learning that continues with them throughout their future school experiences and lives.
We recognise that you, as parents, are the first and foremost educators and that we work in partnership with you in providing a personalised education program that meets the needs of every child.
At St Helena's learning is strongly focused on the development literacy and numeracy skills with ICT skills integrated into daily learning. As students progress through the school there is an increasing emphasis on the developing of knowledge and skills within the Science learning area.
Our school is located in the Swan Valley and by 2020 Ellenbrook will have eight villages spread over 1200 hectares, forming one integrated community of approximately 30 000 people.
