Our history

St Thomas Aquinas Primary, was opened in 1921 with a total school enrolment of 24 students in the old church building located on the corner of Hawkesbury Road and Macquarie Road, Springwood.

By 1962, enrolment had increased to 187 students and to accommodate these growing numbers a new school building was erected on the Hawkesbury Road frontage. The school was run by the Sisters of St Joseph until 1976, when the first lay principal was appointed.

The first stage of the new St Thomas Aquinas Primary School was opened on its current site in 1982. The school continued to grow and to take it into the new millennium, seven new classrooms, an administration block and library were completed in 2001. A covered learning area was constructed in 2006 with funds raised by the school community.

In 2011 the school was able to complete a number of upgrades as part of the federal government's Building the Education Revolution (BER) program, including a new multipurpose learning and performance space (Bishop Manning Learning Centre).
