Principal’s Message

Welcome to the St Ambrose Catholic Primary School website. Our hope is that this website will provide you with a snapshot of the strength of our school as a dynamic, innovative, Catholic learning community. 

We are a community that combines a rich history with highly engaging and contemporary approaches to education. Our vision is “In Faith and Love We Challenge The Mind and Engage The Heart” and we consistently strive to achieve this through our commitment to our Catholic faith and to ensuring that all of our students are nurtured to achieve their potential through a culture of high expectation and support.  At St Ambrose we believe that children learn best when they are known, understood and supported to live life ‘to the full’ (John 10:10).

St Ambrose Catholic Primary School Concord West was established by the Sisters of Charity in 1924. With nearly 100 years of education, we are immensely proud of our heritage and we draw on the charism of the Sisters to inform what we do today.  

“The Love of Christ Impels Us” is the motto of the Sisters of Charity and it is the foundation of our school values – The Love of Christ Impels Us To Be: Respectful, Compassionate, Proactive, Faith-Filled, The Best We Can Be. It is the love of Christ that unites us as a faith-filled community.
