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.

Spring bannerBANNERS FOR SPRING MASS
Thanks and congratulations to Year Two and Year Four students along with Miss Jones, Mrs Shellshear, Mrs Twidale and Mrs Morris for the wonderful Spring Mass which we all experienced. If you haven’t already done so, drop in to the Church to see the banners our students have created to represent the Seasons of the Year which are reflected in our own faith growth.

CROSSING SUPERVISOR
Mary, our crossing supervisor will not be at the crossing over the next week. Unfortunately, Mary’s employer, Dept. of Transport, does not have a replacement for her, meaning that the crossing will be unattended. Please ensure that you speak to your children about crossing the roads safely during this time. If you are interested in becoming a relief supervisor (a paid position) please contact the Dept. of Transport for further information.

LIBRARY NEWS
Book week for 2015 has been and gone, but what a great week! Last Tuesday and Thursday the library was open before school and at first break and it was so lovely to see it full of children participating in various activities. The culminating event was the Book Character Parade on Friday. There were so much enthusiasm in the hall that it created a wonderful atmosphere. The range of costumes and creativity of parents and students was outstanding and a credit to you all. Thank you to everyone involved in making the week a success; from parents and grandparents to students and teachers. I am already thinking about 2016!!

Enrol now for Prep 2016Once again we have Book Fair operating in term 3. It will occur in week 3 of the term from Tuesday 20th to Friday the 23rd October. The Book Fairs are always very well supported by the school community so I have decided to have a goal for the commission raised during this book fair. I would like to purchase 2 IPads for the library so that students can access interactive books when the library is open before school and during lunch times. In order to receive enough commission to make this purchase we need to sell $5000 worth of books. We have reached this amount during the last two book fairs and I believe we can do it again.

ST PAT'S PUBLIC SPEAKING
