At St Monica’s, students think for themselves, accept challenges and, most importantly, value their achievements. We celebrate the gifts of every individual.

Our Vision

At St Monica’s, every child, every day will be supported and challenged in a faith-filled, welcoming and inclusive environment, underpinned by best practice and high expectations.

We are a community of faith and hope with many gifts and talents. We promote justice for all, preserving the dignity of each individual – and we believe that those individuals can reach their full potential with a strong relationship between home and school.

All students need an engaging curriculum that provides them with a variety of learning experiences, which is what we are proud to deliver every day at St Monica’s. We cater for all, and we celebrate the individual.

Our campus



The right environment is critical to the development of a child.


At St Monica’s we are fortunate to have inspiring grounds and classrooms.

Our learning spaces are purposefully designed to motivate learning at every opportunity. Most importantly, they are built for a community of learners, where students can share their academic journey in a focused and fun school day.

Beyond the classroom, our students enjoy lunchtimes around an oval, a full stadium, lots of play equipment, and a sensory garden which was designed by an occupational therapist.

Our Catholic Identity


At St. Monica’s, our school is open to all who seek a Catholic education.

We welcome families of all backgrounds. We share and celebrate the diversity of our community. All students participate in Religious Education and learn about the Catholic Story. This is a central part of school life, including our pastoral care and student engagement, communication and interaction.

Our Catholic identity informs and influences all learning in the school and is integrated throughout the curriculum. Sending a child to a Catholic school involves supporting this religious aspect of school life.

Our History


Educating the community of Wodonga for generations.


Catholic education in Wodonga began in 1876 when St Augustine’s Primary School was established by the Sisters of Mercy. By 1899, the new school buildings were completed, and St Augustine’s was catering for primary, secondary and commercial classes. A boarding school was also established at the convent.


By the late 1940’s and the decade that followed, the large number of European immigrants moving to the area and the post war baby boom saw a substantial increase in numbers at St Augustine’s. As a result, St Monica’s Primary School was built and opened in 1973.

Professional. Proud. Dedicated.

Our staff are committed to the education and wellbeing of every student.
