“Dear Ms Jayne Wheen, Principal,
We received <name withheld> NAPLAN results last week and were very happy and proud of him.”
“I write to let you know that we are totally grateful for Corpus Christi for giving him this opportunity.
I just wanted to say, thank you. <name withheld> would not have achieved these results if he was still at the old school.
Thank you for your help and support.”
From The Bijzitter Family – parents 2020
“We arrived in Australia from the Netherlands in 2019. Our four boys hardly spoke any English and we had to find them a good and nice school. Fortunately, we came across Corpus Christi. From the moment we have met Mrs. Wheen, she made us feel at home. Also, all the staff we met, was such a warm welcome. Once the boys started at school, not only the teachers but also the children did their utmost best to make them feel appreciated and special. The whole Corpus Christy Community felt almost immediately as family!
We especially liked the way that Corpus is acting towards children as they align with the child’s interest and possibilities. All four of our boys obviously had their own strength and weaknesses and they were encouraged to develop those.
Unfortunately, we had to leave Australia because of COVID. We will miss everyone at Corpus!”

From Brian & Ingy – parents 2020
“Our daughter, Jessica attended Corpus Christi St. Ives from Grade 2 to Grade 6 (2016 – 2020).
In that time she has made many marvellous friends with a significant contribution to this being the friendly, family orientated environment nurtured by the school.
Jessica was given the opportunities to excel in her studies, sport and religious guidance offered by the school and she now sadly has to move on but I am sure her time at Corpus will be forever remembered.
We both need to say a big thank you for all the teachers during such a difficult 2020 and all teachers were dragged way outside their comfort zone and they have all done a wonderful job in the most difficult of circumstances. For that, we are eternally grateful.” – Brian and Ingy
From Riaan & Lisa – parents 2020
“Lisa and I are immensely grateful for all that you and your lovely staff has done for our Children.
We have seen them blossom during the last year and a half and we are are positive that it is mainly due to the care and love you and your teachers bestowed on them. We sincerely hope that we can find a school of similar calibre in Perth.
We will always look back fondly to our time at Corpus Christi and are sure that the school will only go from strength to strength…thanks again for your influence on our children.” – Riaan and Lisa
“A wonderful aspect of Corpus Christi is that it is a very social school. Not only do all the children know each other, which often means that they play across grades, the parents know almost everybody too through the various fun events held throughout the year. We have made some life long friends because of the community feel that Corpus has to offer.” – Alison and Cameron
“Corpus Christi Primary School in St Ives is a great school.
My three children have all attended Corpus Christi from Kindergarten to Year 6, and each of them has received a wonderful, well rounded education that has prepared them perfectly for the transition into high school.
Corpus Christi has a wonderful team of teachers and support staff, all of whom encourage each child to perform to the best of their ability.
Corpus Christi has an active co-curricula program. Children are encouraged to participate in the soccer club, netball club, school band, school choir, inter-school debating and public speaking competitions, and in the end of year school musical. The school also offers private tuition in music and French.
One of the best aspects of Corpus Christi is the strong sense of community amongst the teachers, students and parents. The school has an active Parents and Friends Association (P&F), which organises social events throughout the year. Many of our friends are fellow parents who we met at Corpus Christi, and who will be friends for life.
As a small school, Corpus Christi provides a caring and nurturing environment for all students. The school has excellent classroom facilities and has plenty of open space and playgrounds for the kids to enjoy outside class.
Corpus Christi also has a before school and after school program (Link Road Kids), which is very supportive for working families.
In summary, Corpus Christi Primary School provides a quality, well rounded education for its students in a happy and nurturing learning environment.
I highly recommend Corpus Christi to all families considering it for their children.”

Letter from The Director of Pinjarra Pre-School at Pymble – November 2015
“Thank you so much for having me at your school last Thursday. From the moment I walked in the gate I felt welcome. It was easy to tell how proud the children were of the school and they delivered their tour with great knowledge, passion and respect for each other.
I was so impressed with the facilities and the sense of community.
Thank you for taking the time to introduce me to so many exciting experiences that are taking place at your school.”
Email from Past Family:
“What we loved most about Corpus Christi was the inclusive and welcoming environment. Not only do all the students seem to be valued and respected by all their peers, but the staff at the school continually model this behaviour through their interactions with students, parents and other staff members. A wonderful peer support program allowed kinder students to interact with older children who are wonderful role models for these students. This was ever so evident when observing the children in the playground, when it seemed the whole school was happy to be playing with each other.
Whole school events such as athletics day build upon the already strong community and school spirit of students. Special events celebrated by the school help to value the wider community and the importance they play in our children’s lives. Assemblies were fantastic in that they were full of celebrations – from birthdays, personal achievements and celebrating those who following school rules and being a valued and contributing member of the school community. We loved that the values of the school were constantly reviewed with the children, encouraging desired behaviours.
Our children have been supported by professional and caring teachers who not only supported their academic learning but their personal growth. We also liked that the school offered a range of specialist programs. Our children enjoyed the topics covered in school and this was evident by the strong conversations we were able to have with them. The homework set by the school was not excessive but consolidated knowledge and allowed us as parents to gain an insight of what was being covered at school.”
