Welcome to our website.....

Founded by the Sisters of St Joseph’s in 1933, St Patrick’s is a coeducational Catholic Primary School providing a quality educational experience for students from Prep to Year 6.  Our aim is to provide a safe and happy learning environment where students, parents and staff work together to encourage personal growth in order to lead to the establishment of solid foundations for lifelong learning.

Our school is characterised by strong links to Toowoomba Catholic Education, the Balonne Catholic Parish and broader St George and Balonne Shire communities. We strive to provide experiences for students to explore and learn about the Catholic faith and develop an understanding of and love for Jesus.

Australia: Story Country

Next week we celebrate book week with the theme Australia: Story Country. Over the week children will be engaged in activities around this theme. To commence book week on Monday the 22nd August we are asking students to come dressed in an Australian theme. There is NO cost involved or dress parade, but simply a time to have fun and immerse ourselves in everything Australian. If students choose not to dress up they are to come in their normal school uniform.

Enrol now for Prep 2016CLASS NEWS - Year 2J

Last week year two were working very hard on their assessment pieces. The class were asked to write a procedure on something both Grandma and George would enjoy doing together. The class also enjoyed playing around with word, typing up their procedure and saving onto their USB. This week we have started our new 5 week unit- ‘Exploring informative texts’. We have enjoyed our introduction to the unit with a narrative called ‘Make Way for Ducklings’.

Last week 2J were investigating length, area and capacity. We compared, measured and ordered several objects using uniform informal units. This week we have been busy looking at flips, slides and turns and also re-visiting our numbers to 1000 concepts.

This week we learnt a new game! Kelereng, a traditional Indonesian game of marbles. You may be asking what does this have to do with Science? Well marbles are moved by flicking (pushing) with the thumb and finger. The students realised they had to adapt the amount of force they used with their marbles if they were to get their striker outside the circle.

We hope you enjoyed listening to our Olympic presentation at our assembly. Year two have been eagerly following the Australians in competition and the medal tally. We really enjoy catching up each morning, talking about events that have happened over night and how our country has competed. I’m very much looking forward to the Commonwealth Games already!

We are currently taking enrolments for Prep for 2017. If you know of families with Prep aged children please encourage them to call in to the office to collect an enrolment package.
