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.

SW ATHLETICS CARNIVAL
Congratulations to the sttudents who were selected to represent the Balonne at the South West Athletics, to be held in St George at the State High School, on 28—29th August.

BOOK WEEK SUCCESS
Book Week has been and gone and so too has Book in a Night. What a wonderful event it was to showcase the talent of our Choir and Eisteddfod students as well as the creativity of our children. Over the last few days I have received lots of positive comments on the night. However, it could not have happened without the help of a large
group of people and for this I wish to extend my sincere thanks to:

  • the teachers who gave endless amounts of time practicing with students for the Eisteddfod and Choir performances,
  • Book Week - Book In A Night all the teachers involved in encouraging students to participate in Book in a Night and collecting their photos and book reviews,
  • the staff who helped set up the display, run the bar and entrance area, dismantle the display and wash tablecloths,
  • teachers who willingly rearranged their schedules so that the hall could be utilised, for over a week,
  • students and staff who kindly lent items for display,
  • the year 6/7 students who generously gave up lunch times to help set up and pack up,
  • and last, but by no means least, the parents and students for coming up with such wonderful, creative photos to display.

On the night we also ran a raffle and a 100’s board. The winners of the raffle, in order, were Sharyn, Suzie and Cheryl. The winner of the 100’s board was Naomi who very kindly donated her winnings back to the school. Thank you Naomi for your generosity.

Don’t forget the library is open every Tuesday morning before school. Parents and siblings welcome to come and read.

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.
