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.

Last Day of Term 4
Welcome back to the final Term of the 2016 school year. Term 4 is always a busy time for students, teachers and families. There are a number of significant events which will occur in the no so distant future, including: Swimming Lessons and Carnival, Fete, Awards Evening, Year 6 Graduation and Mass for Year 12’s. I wish everyone well for the busy Term ahead.
Next Thursday, October 20, I will hold a parent meeting to discuss school improvement around the areas of Social Justice and Pedagogy: Planning and Teaching. I would like to receive input from parents around what we do well in these areas as well as provide an opportunity to put forward suggestions and ideas future initiatives. All are welcome.
This week we were visited by representatives from Shiloh Ministries. The children of St Patrick’s have raised $1000 each year for the past three years to enable Shiloh Ministries to place bores in villages in India. The bores have increased in cost to $1100 this year. We are well on the way to raising the money for this year and we will have a fundraiser shortly to enable us to support this important work.
