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.

INDIA BORE WELL
India Bore Well In February, St Patrick’s staff and students donated $1000 to The Shiloh Church Ministries to install a bore well in India. This was our 3rd donation of $1000. When you see how it is spent and how much it is appreciated it stirs a desire to continue helping these unfortunate children. This letter of appreciation was emailed to me recently, along with photos. Sharing it with you all seems fitting, as it was through the generosity of all staff and students that we were able to assist.

This year we started plans for our 4th orphanage home at Yerravaram in India. This area is filled with tribal people, many of whom are uneducated. In this area thousands of orphan children are homeless and they have no hope. They are suffering without food, clothes, education and shelter. By the support of Australian donors, we bought the land to build the big orphanage home. Before construction started, we needed a bore well to build the orphanage building, so we prayed for the financial support to install the bore well. Amazingly God answered our prayers and touched the hearts of St. Patrick's Catholic Primary School, at St. George and opened the doors. With your great support of $1000 dollars we were able to install the bore well on the new orphanage home building land. Next week we are starting the construction. We have dedicated the bore well with all the orphan children. They are so thankful and grateful to St. Patrick's Catholic Primary School, at St. George for your great support of a bore well. They are unable to express their gratitude in words so you are always in their prayers and blessings. Soon after completing the buildings 100 to 150 orphan children will live in this building. This bore will supply the water for all the children. Thanks for your special concern, prayers and support to install bore wells. May God bless you all abundantly. Yours in Him. G. Raju & Paul

SHOT PUT OLYMPIAN AND WORLD CHAMPION VISIT

In the last couple of weeks we have been lucky enough to have 3 time Olympian and former World Champion, Justin Anlezark (shotput), here at St Pat’s working with our students, teaching them the fundamentals of throwing.

He brought his 7kg shotput that he used at the Beijing Olympics to show everyone. He also showed us sprinting techniques and took some students for after school sessions in shotput and discus.

We have loved having you here, Justin!
