Our Principal


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the St Francis de Sales School website.

I am proud of the experience we offer the families of Clifton and I am fortunate to lead such a caring, professional, and dedicated learning community. 

Being a Catholic school makes us unique.  A St Francis de Sales School education means providing for your child’s intellectual, spiritual, social, physical, emotional, and cultural development.  

Our teachers and staff are committed to empowering students to reach their full potential, to become life-long learners and become active contributors to their communities.  We aim to educate the whole person – the head, the heart, and the hand. 

All members of our community contribute to its success. A commitment to excellence in all areas of school life commands that we are clear about our expectations of staff, students, and parents.  Such a culture drives success whilst ensuring no student is left behind.  

We welcome all families without distinction, and it would be my pleasure to share more about St Francis de Sales School with any prospective familyIf you’d like to know more about how your child can begin a remarkable journey at our school, I can be contacted on telephone on 07 4612 4000, or email brendan.oreilly@twb.catholic.edu.au
