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.

FRIDAY 8TH AUGUST ASSEMBLY
Assembly will be after the Book Parade which starts at 8:45am in the MPC. We anticipate the Book Parade will go for at least an hour.

Year 6 Canberra/Sydney CampYEAR 6C CANBERRA/SYDNEY CAMP
From the 2nd to the 8th August Year 6 went on a camp to Canberra. The students experienced lots of educational places and activities including: Parliament House, Old Parliament House, Australian Electoral Educational Centre, Questacon, National Museum, Australian War Memorial, National Zoo and Aquarium, Mary Mackillop Place, Sydney Harbour Cruise and a day at the snow in Perisher.

Lots of people have been involved in making this camp happen. We would like to thank all the parents of year 6 who have been tirelessly fundraising since the end of last year, especially Bec who coordinated the fundraisers. Also we would like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations - Apex club of St George, Balonne Shire Council, Rotary Club of St George and the Lions Club of St George. As well as this we received a grant from Easternwell Community Grants and a rebate per child of $60 from the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (PACER) funded from the Australian Government. Thank you to Heath and Sarah who generously gave up their time to accompany us in Canberra for the week. Thanks again to all those who supported the 2015 Year 6 Camp.

Enrol now for Prep 2016THE GOONDIWINDI EISTEDDFOD 4th August 2015
Speaking
Congratulations to the 24 children from Years 3 -5 who participated in the annual Eisteddfod for Verse speaking. Unfortunately 2 of our students, Isabella and Brigitte were unable to participate because of illness. All of these children worked for 4 months on their selected pieces of verse. They gave up their lunch hours, came before and after school and practised at home. Their commitment and dedication paid off as I was very proud of every student for their outstanding effort and achievement they displayed in Goondiwindi.

Thank you to our parents who travelled to Goondiwindi and those who stayed overnight. Without your support and commitment the Eisteddfod would not be possible. It is very much appreciated. Our student’s presentation and the way they conducted themselves was outstanding. Seeing each child beautifully dressed in their school uniform and confidently standing in front of an unfamiliar audience made me feel very proud. Every student from our school did not need to be prompted by the adjudicator. That is something to be proud of as quite often nerves can play havoc to a participator.

In the mail today I received a lovely letter from Judy Dunlop, the tireless hard working secretary of the Goondiwindi Eisteddfod. Judy always writes a ‘thank you’ letter after each Eisteddfod. This year I decided to put it in the newsletter. It is always so good to receive positive and encouraging comments.
