At St Patrick’s Primary School, we are blessed to have so many wonderful children in our care. We believe that each child is a precious gift from God with their own gifts and talents. Our aim is to support each child in using their gifts to find their place in this world. We acknowledge the great work that parents do as primary educators of their children and we are striving to build open and trusting relationships with parents and guardians. We have a very close link with our parish in supporting our families and outreaching to those who are in need.
Our teaching and learning program looks to promoting life-long learning and the development of each child spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually and socially. Teaching and learning are at the core of our business and promotion of quality research based practice is driven at St Patrick’s. Teachers have become highly engaged in learning about the brain and how it works and putting into practice social and emotional skills to support children and parents.
St Patrick’s offers many programs to suit the different learning styles of our students. We provide opportunities for students to take part in Leadership activities, sporting teams, drama, speaking and listening and community service. Our students have opportunities to live out their faith by participating in mass and sacramental programs and our Religious Education units of work support the development of important religious content and faith integration.
I welcome you to our website and hope that you can find the answers that you need. Please peruse the different aspects of our webpage and view some of the important links that we have included for parent support and information. There are many on-line forms that can be used to assist parents with providing information to the school and to their classroom teacher.
