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.

Enrol now for Prep 2016Community News      

Catholic Education Week begins next Monday, July 25. The theme for Catholic Education Week is “Opening Doors in the Year of Mercy”. Our celebrations will begin with Mass at 9.00 am on Monday. After mass we will ‘Open the Doors’ of our classrooms. You are most welcome to come into our rooms and talk with the students, read a book, work on a puzzle or complete other activities with our students. Our ‘Open Doors’ will occur at 10.00 until 10.45 am. This will be followed by a picnic lunch together on the oval. Once again I would like to stress that you are all very welcome to join us on this special occasion. Please make sure you check out the display at Golders. We thank Golders for giving us the opportunity to place this display in their window.

Year 2J

Welcome back for another fantastic term full of fun, making new friends and of course lots of learning. Christmas will be here in no time!

This Term Year Two are studying procedures within English. We are currently reading a very hilarious novel called ‘Georges Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. George's Grandma is a grizzly, grumpy, selfish old woman with pale brown teeth and a small puckered up mouth like a dog's bottom. It’s so nice to hear the fits of laughter, giggles and cheer come out of the class’s mouths during reading. I think it proves just how much the class is enjoying our unit so far. Please ask your child to provide a recount of the story so far. They just may have you in stitches of laughter also.

Art ShowScience- Toy factory
In this science unit students are learning that pushes and pulls affect how an object moves or changes shape. The context of a toy factory, will involve the class making toys to present to prep. I hope this unit excites and engages students by making connections with what they already know while providing extensive opportunities to develop science knowledge and achieve the intended learning.

Last week we were busy investigating numbers beyond 100. We learnt how to represent 3 digit numbers with MABs, filled in missing number boards on the cement with chalk and ordered 3 digit numbers from smallest to largest. This week we have been partitioning collections and shapes into halves, quarters and eighths. As we were working so hard the class enjoyed a special treat when we cut lolly snakes into quarters.


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.
