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.
  • Catholic Education Office Toowoomba

    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.

LIBRARY NEWS

Book Fair has arrived!
During the week the silver cases of books arrived and students received their brochures. Book Fair will run all of the week Monday 23rd March – Friday 27th March from 3.00– 4.00p,. Please come along and support the school Library as we receive commission from all sales which means more resources for our students!

Suitcase of Stories
Last week the Library Monitors started taking our “Suitcase of Stories” out to the back oval at second break. This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to access books during their play break. We had the older students reading to younger students and some children simply enjoying reading by themselves. It was wonderful to see the children engaging with the stories and we look forward to continuing this activity for the remainder of the year. Please see photos.

Movie Night

STATE SWIMMING NEWS

Congratulations and best wishes to Charlie, Samuel, Holly and Olivia, who will be competing in the State Swimming Championships next week. Thanks also, Allie Jones who is accompanying them as Coach/Manager. Well done Charlie, who broke a couple of South West Swimming records!



LITERACY CAMP

This morning we farewelled Miss Kate Condon and a group of year four, five and six students who are on their way to the Somerset College Celebration of Literature Festival, being held on the Gold Coast this week. In 2014, the Parents and Friends explored the possibility of groups of students attending non-sports related events outside of the Maranoa and Warrego districts. With the determined efforts of Jen Street this has come to fruition with our first albeit small group of students venturing off to attend a series of events at the Festival that have a particular focus on the development of the written word. Our students will have opportunities to interact with authors and illustrators of various types of fictional works. One of the authors is Scott Prince who is best known for his skill on the football field. What a wonderful opportunity! Thanks to Jen and Kate!
