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.
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.

Thank you to Dr Cameron Bardsley and Kathy Avery who
visited Year 6 as part of Family Life. Dr Cameron spoke about
saying no to drugs and excess alcohol whilst Kathy Avery spoke
about personal hygiene. Thank you to Mrs Morris and Mrs
Worboys who worked through other aspects of Family Life with
the class including puberty and the changes that occur.
Thank you Sheree and Sarah who volunteered during swim block. We all enjoyed our time at the pool and the swimming carnivals. Well done to all students.
English All students in Year 6 created an anthology of poems which was displayed as an interactive Power PowerPoint. Students created a Tanka poem which is 5 lines long and follows a 5 syllable, 7 syllable, 5 syllable, 7 syllable and 7 syllable pattern. They also created a free verse poem utilising their choice of poetic techniques. All poems were to utilise the theme of 'Year 6'. Please see the current newsletter for more poems.
Good Bye Year 6
Year 6 was fun
We have been on an amazing run
With all our friends
We've been through all the bends
We have ended the year
A new time is near
With a rather large sigh
We are leaving
Without no meaning
But, I will be happy.
Thank you for all of your support throughout this incredibly busy year. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you and all of the students in Year 6. I am looking forward to seeing you all at graduation next Wednesday! Kate Condon
