St Thomas More's School is situated on 23 acres in an attractive, rural setting in Canadian Bay Road, Mt Eliza. St Thomas More’s was originally opened in June 1981 with 126 students from the parishes of St Macartan’s, Mornington, and St Francis Xavier’s in Frankston. Today, we are delighted to provide a quality Catholic education to approximately 300 students from Mt Eliza and surrounding areas.


St Thomas More Primary School is a nurturing and inclusive Catholic community. We help children develop a loving relationship with God by fostering an awareness of self, others, the world and the faith community. We embed Gospel values in all we do; modelling and promoting love, compassion and respect for each and every person. We welcome and embrace families from all faith backgrounds and value the uniqueness, potential and diversity of all members of our community.

At St Thomas More we are committed to excellence in Catholic education. We work in partnership with our families to ensure the full flourishing of every child. We aim to achieve the highest standards possible for our students by using research informed strategies to ensure progress and growth for all. We provide children with a learning environment where they feel safe, engaged and challenged to do their best. We encourage the natural curiosity of our students and support them to become lifelong learners, equipped with the necessary skills to solve problems in an ever-changing world.
