Welcome to our website.....
St Patrick’s is the Catholic Primary School of St Patrick’s Parish in St George and is part of the Catholic Education family in the Diocese of Toowoomba. Our school exists not to be different but to make a difference and to present a vision of reality that has its origins in the gospel of Jesus. Some of the most important characteristics of a Catholic School are listed below:
- The Catholic School is a faith community. It is a place where God is named and recognised and where gospel values are reflected.
- It is focused towards evangelisation. By the example of community members, students see how faith and contemporary life can be integrated.
- It is oriented towards total development of the individual – spiritual, moral, social, emotional and intellectual.
- It enhances the dignity of each person.
- It has a special orientation towards the marginalised.
It values openness and seeks truth.
- It is characterised by hopefulness.
When enrolling students at St Patrick’s, I believe that I am enrolling not only the child/ren but the whole family. To achieve the best educational outcomes for a child, positive and close partnerships must be formed between school and home. We recognise that parents are the first educators and it is our role to support and enhance this education. We are very proud of our students and it is our hope that whatever they do in life, they will be able to recall the values we hold true here at St Patrick’s, to help them along life’s journey.

CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
28th July to 1st August is Catholic Education Week, a time of celebration for all that is done in Catholic School communities across Queensland. It is timely to remember that St Patrick's is not a tiny entity sitting all on its own 'down the Moonie' but rather a part of a very significant community providing outstanding education across Queensland and Australia. On Wednesday, 30th July, staff will travel to Roma for the Annual Bishop's In-service Day. It is a *Pupil Free Day*.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) have been working this year to help assist the school in events and ideas the student body is interested in. There have been 2 members from the upper school classes selected and have represented these students in Terms 1 and 2. This term we welcome in a new set of Representatives and thank the outgoing Representatives.
Congratulations to the NEW SRC members.
Please come to Assembly on Friday Week 2 (25th July) to congratulate these students and watch them being presented their badges.
