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.

Earlier this week a letter was sent home to
all families indicating that I have accepted a
position with Brisbane Catholic Education.
The position is Principal, at St Mary’s
Catholic Primary School, Laidley. It is with
mixed emotion that I leave St George and
the St Patrick’s Community. My time with
you this year has been a time of both
personal and professional growth. I am so
grateful to the St Patrick’s School Community, the Parish and
the broader St George Community for the support I have
received and friendships I have made. There is a very special
quality I see in the people of St George and the St Patrick’s
Community. I urge you not to take this for granted. The
Toowoomba Catholic Schools Office is in the process of
appointing an Acting Principal for the 2017 school year. I wish
the incoming Principal well in his/her endeavours in 2017 and
The St Patrick’s Parish Fete committee met last week. The
preliminary indication is that the money raised from the 2016
Fete was very similar to that of 2015 – Approximately $23,000.
Congratulations to all who contributed to the 2016 St Patrick’s
Parish Fete. I would like to acknowledge Rocky Geofrielle who
was the winner of the $1000. Rocky generously donated the
proceeds back to the School. This is a very kind gesture and it
is greatly appreciated.
