St Simon the Apostle Primary School Rowville

St Simon the Apostle Primary School was established in 1982, the second school created by the Parish of St Jude’s, Scoresby. The school started with an initial humble enrolment of 92 pupils and a staff of six before quickly expanding. 1988 saw the appointment of Rev. Father Les Tomlinson as the first Parish Priest of the newly formed parish, with the school population quickly reaching 500 by 1989. Throughout the years St Simons has always strived to provide the highest quality of education through the lens of the Catholic tradition.

St Simon the Apostle is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). 

MACS governs and operates Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills, and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them. 

Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
