Welcome to our website.....

At St Patrick’s our aim is to provide quality educational experiences for all. We encourage students to explore and learn about the Catholic faith and the understanding of and the love for Jesus. Our staff inspire and challenge students to do their best and to develop a love of learning so all students can achieve academic success.  In the spirit of St Mary MacKillop, our school believes in the promotion of relationships built upon mutual respect, trust and faith.

Unity is strength, and here at St Patrick’s, that is what makes our school a family.

I encourage you to explore the website, to share in the educational journey and become familiar with our school.

Community News      

Welcome back parents, students and staff to the new school year of 2018. A seamless transition has been evident with a delightful commencement of routines and structures that have significantly contributed to the learning environment. Way to go St Patrick’s.

CLASSROOM NEWS
Year 4M - Welcome to Year 4 2018. Your children have settled in well and we are still establishing classroom routine. There are 29 children in the class, 15 boys and 14 girls. In English, we have commenced our unit with a focus on a piece of literature called “The Best Bottom” by Brigitte Minne and will be learning to write a persuasive paragraph. Guided Reading lessons will begin in Week 4 but until then there is daily reading happening in the form of Shared Reading and Independent Reading. In Maths, the students have revised place value and reading and writing numbers to 10 000 with some extension to 100 000. Parent Information Night will be Thursday, 8th February at 5.30pm. I will be on sick leave in Week 3 due to having a small operation. I hope that all goes well and I will attend the Information Night. Please call into the classroom if you have any concerns or you would just like to help. We are looking forward to working with you and your child this year. Majella and Shelley

Year 5W - 5W has had a great start to the school year. I had a feeling of deja vu when my class presented on their first day as I had taught 20 of the 31 students in 2016 when they were in Year 3. Of the 31 we have this year, 15 are girls and 16 boys. We welcome two new boys… Brent and Hewie. Within the last 2 weeks we have been very busy being organised and doing some testing in preparation for the year ahead. We are very fortunate to have Mrs Sheree Davies timetabled to our class for 14 hours a week, to offer additional support in Maths and English. Mrs Kellie Twidale is also with us for 2 hours. I look forward to working with your child in 2018 and I will appreciate your support as the year unfolds. Warm regards, Donna
