Welcome to our website.....
At St Patrick’s our aim is to provide quality educational experiences for all. We encourage students to explore and learn about the Catholic faith and the understanding of and the love for Jesus. Our staff inspire and challenge students to do their best and to develop a love of learning so all students can achieve academic success. In the spirit of St Mary MacKillop, our school believes in the promotion of relationships built upon mutual respect, trust and faith.
Unity is strength, and here at St Patrick’s, that is what makes our school a family.
I encourage you to explore the website, to share in the educational journey and become familiar with our school.

End of Year Mass 9am
School concludes for 2018
Graduation Liturgy 6pm
and Dinner 7pm
As this is the last newsletter of the year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of our community for their support, dedication and commitment to St Patrick’s. St Patrick’s is very lucky to have the support of many generous families who will pitch in to lend a hand whenever it is needed. This has been very evident all year and to all I say thank you.
To the graduation class of 2018, our warmest congratulations and well done. As you grow into young ladies and gentlemen, we trust that the skills, values and attributes you have learnt and developed at St Patrick’s will stand you in good stead for a bright, happy and successful future.
One of the best parts of the holiday season is the opportunity to take a break - however brief - from regular day-to-day affairs. I hope this year that you can use this time to reflect on items that are most important, rather than on what is most urgent. As an educator now for 17 years, I have grown to appreciate how easily the urgent can push aside the important, but I strive daily to focus on the important- our children! I hope that, during the holiday break, you will also be able step back and focus on the important topics in your professional and personal lives. Best wishes for a peaceful and joyful holiday. Looking forward to seeing you at our celebration events over the coming week.
Many richest Christmas blessings and thanks for reading this year… Brendan
THANKSGIVING MASS and GRADUATION LITURGY

SUNCORP WISH UPON
A BALLET STAR COMPETITION
Annie is a Year 5 student at St Patrick’s and she loves to dance in her spare time. Therefore, we are excited to share that she gained selection as one of the top 10 finalists for ‘Suncorp Wish upon a Ballet Star’ competition. This means Qld Ballet will fly her to Brisbane later this month to spend a day with Ballet superstars! She will get to experience a glimpse of the life of a ballet dancer and meet Queensland Ballet’s Artistic Director Li Cunxin. For this alone, we are so very thankful and excited for Annie.
To be THE finalist, however, and experience a once in a lifetime opportunity - a walk on role in ‘The Nutcracker’, Annie needs your vote! Please spare a moment of your time and vote for Annie and share so your friends can vote too!
PREP ENROLMENTS FOR 2019
Prep interviews for 2019 are underway. Our numbers are moving along quite nicely so if you know of any interested families who have Prep aged children, please inform them to send in their applications in as soon as possible so they do not miss out on the chance to attend St Patrick's. I appreciate your diligence in assisting the school.
