St Theresa School, a mixed primary school run by the Carmelite Missionary
Sisters of St Theresa of the Child Jesus, provides the moulding of children’s
character primarily in the love of God and of neighbours.
We provide a safe, happy atmosphere and give special attention to our
pupils’ emotional needs. We create a caring climate within which we
provide a holistic education. At the same time, we establish links with
parents in order to foster supportive parental involvement and we
endeavour to encourage students to develop a positive attitude towards
themselves and to appreciate and tolerate others.
We especially do this through the Carmelite spirituality and the teachings
of St Theresa of the Child Jesus and our founders.
Blessed Maria Crocifissa Curcio, our foundress, used to
urge the sisters to love children and work towards the
well-being of youth. She was often heard to say ‘free
gold from the mud’ – ‘liberare l’oro dal fango’.
