Victory through faith

Celebrating our Golden Jubilee - 50 years of quality Catholic education!

Christ the King is proud to be part of Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese's system of 80 Catholic primary and secondary schools operating across Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains providing more than 43,500 students with a high-quality, low fee Catholic education.

Our vision is to make Christ the King Primary a Christ-centred community where Catholic values, the nurturing of the whole person, and a commitment to quality learning and teaching are part of our everyday life.

Our school is committed to creating a learning community where:

We promote our faith formation.

We nurture our students.

We provide quality learning and teaching.

We grow as a community.

We treat each person with respect and as an individual.

Our school logo

Our logo shows the Greek letters of 'CHR' for Christ, which is surmounted by a crown to signify our King. Christ the King is our leader and protector.

Victory Through Faith is our school’s motto. It is a direct link to the Holy Faith Order who sent out nuns from Ireland to help start our school back in 1970.

Our history

In 1969, a new school was planned for the North Rocks area and the Holy Faith Sisters were invited to lead and work in the school.

Founding Principal, Sr Catherine Maddock and Sr Elizabeth from Ireland, began teaching children from Kindergarten to Year 2 in St Gerard’s Hall in Carlingford in 1973. By 1974 two lay teachers, Patricia Taylor and Maree Salkeld, joined the Sisters in educating the children. The school grew and in 1975 the primary building was completed and blessed by Bishop Clancy on 8th June.

The establishment of a Catholic community was as a result of the passion and efforts of our founding parish priest, the Reverend Fr Eric Burton, who was our parish priest for forty five years. Fr Eric Burton named the parish and our school 'Christ The King'. He saw that Christ was the shepherd who served His people. He wanted us to serve each other as Christ has served us. It is the vision that continues today.

In 1994 the first lay Principal, Ted Langford was appointed and over the years our school has evolved with refurbished learning spaces and embedded technology. We welcomed Tony Hughes as the fifth Principal in 2015 and continue to enjoy the tradition of quality education within the community of love, which is Christ the King.

We continue to build our community, working together for the common good, so that our school continues to grow into a just and safe place where our school rules, based on gospel values, are instilled and practised by all members within our school environment.
