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.
St Patrick’s is a welcoming school community where staff encourage 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.
I welcome you to the St Patrick’s School website and encourage you to explore further to find out why St Patrick’s is the right place for your child and family.
