Welcome to our website.....
At St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, our aim is to provide quality educational experiences for students from Prep to Year 6. Through a happy, safe and supportive learning environment, students, parents and staff work together to encourage personal growth and promote success which leads to the establishment of solid foundations for lifelong learning.
In accordance with the founding Sisters of St Joseph and in the spirit of St Mary MacKillop, our school believes in the promotion of relationships built upon mutual respect, trust and faith. We encourage students to explore and learn about the Catholic faith and the understanding of and the love for Jesus.
Our school is a welcoming community where staff inspire and challenge students to do their best, to develop their talents, a love of learning and to become happy, caring, responsible and resilient individuals who can make a worthwhile contribution to our society.
Unity is strength, and here at St Patrick’s, that is what makes our school a family.
I encourage you to explore the website so that you to may be able to share in the educational journey with us and become a member of our family here at St Patrick’s.

First Day of Term 1
Please remember that Saturday 11th November is Remembrance Day. The RSL service will start at 10.30am at the Cenotaph. It would be great to see St Patrick’s represented so if your child can be present, please ensure they are dressed in formal uniform.
Year 6 students are very excited (and maybe a little nervous) that they are about to take the next step in their educational journey. This week saw the first of our high school transitions where students attended the high school for the afternoon. They were given a taste of high school life and completed some mini lessons. I’m sure they gained some valuable information and now have an idea of what to expect next year.
Back at school, we are well and truly into assessment mode aiming to complete most of our testing by the end of Week 7. Science continues to be a favourite amongst students. Last week the students designed patterned circles. We then attached these to a motor in an electrical circuit, which made our circles spin. Students enjoyed experimenting with different patterns and colours to create interesting effects.
This week we are beginning our English assessment, which will see students aiming to create a sense of time and place as they write a letter to their future selves describing life in St George in 2017.
Graduation preparations are in full swing with invitations out. Please ensure that you RSVP by 22 November as this is the date that final numbers will be given to the catering staff.
ST PAT'S PARISH FETE
Well what a Fete. Many thanks must go to the many helpers prior, during and after the celebration. The Parish Fete Committee certainly excelled, along with the many dedicated students, teachers, parents and community members. A final tally of how much was raised will be announced in the coming days. Thank you St George for supporting our major fundraiser for the year. We are very blessed.
