St Patrick's Primary School is a Catholic school offering a faith based education for primary aged children.We are constantly monitoring our literacy and numeracy practices and are excited by the growth that we are seeing in our children. Our school values wellbeing above all other facets of school life. We employ restorative practices in order to foster and maintain positive relationships among all members of the school. Our afternoon program, along with Fridays' rotations, ensures that all our students have the opportunity to develop their sporting, artistic and musical talents.We believe that it is important that our children have a strong connection with the wider community and make valuable contributions to it.
At St. Patrick’s, we see ourselves as an extension of the family by supporting the values and aspirations that you have for your child. St. Patrick's aims to be a safe, friendly, supportive and caring school community.
Ours is a Faith Community, which includes our Parish Priest, Father Eugene McKinnon and parents, as well as the staff, students and volunteers that work with us. We are proud of our catholicity but we welcome all students regardless of their religious status. Our Christian Values support parents in raising children who are capable of making positive behavioural choices.
The staff at our school prepare academic, sporting, artistic, social and spiritual experiences for our kids. We aim to teach the core curriculum in a variety of ways in order to cater for different learning styles. A typical day's experience at St.Pat's will include whole group learning, small focus groups, the use of technology, social opportunities, sporting or other physical challenges, creative tasks, and some reflective/spiritual time. The school has excellent facilities. Our four classrooms are complimented by a The Hub (Intervention space), Performing Arts Centre, and a separate art room. We are busily redesigning our yard, in order to make it safer and more suitable for both sport and recreational play.
Welcome to our school.
