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.

Our Awards Night is at 5.30 pm on Thursday, 27th November; this is the school’s celebration of all our successes for 2014. We are expecting that all students, from Prep to Year 7, and their parents will be coming together for this final whole-school event for the year.
Year 6&7 and 5O parents are reminded to please bring a plate for the shared supper at the end of the ceremony. Students are reminded that they must be wearing their formal uniform.
2014 SWIMMING CARNIVAL
Our swimming carnivals were a great success. My thanks to all the parents who assisted: we would not have been able to run the carnivals without your help. My thanks also to the staff who were there at 7.00 am both days to help set up all the equipment and shade tents.
SRC FUNDRAISING - SCHOOL DISCO
On Friday the 28th November the SRC will assist in running the last out of uniform day and Disco for the year. The disco will run during school time instead of assembly and all are welcome. The cost of the Disco and out of uniform day will be covered with a gold coin donation. There will be chips, soft drinks, poppers, and cold water for sale. The donations will assist in building another Bore in India.

ENROLMENTS FOR 2015
Enrolment applications for all year levels, especially Prep are now being taken. A child who will be five years of age by June 30 2015, is eligible for enrolment. I would really appreciate bringing this to the attention of your families. A clear indication of enrolment numbers at this stage of the year, allows us to better prepare for the following year. Interviews will occur in the next couple of weeks for new enrolments.
