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
    Catholic Education Office
    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.

Community News      

Congratulations to students in 4S who performed at the Yellow Belly Country Music Festival last Friday. The performance of a Banjo Paterson’s A Bush Christening was appreciated by one and all. A few brave students who are preparing to compete in verse speaking at the Goondiwindi Eisteddfod also performed and received many accolades. Thank you to parents who assisted with transport to and from the venue and of course to Mrs Shellshear and Mrs Davidson.

2016 Prep Enrolments are now being accepted. Interviews to be held between 3rd – 5th August 2015. Please get your Prep enrolments into St Pat’s Office ASAP.

NAIDOC Week Celebrations
Year Two would like to say a big thank you to Miss Weatherall for teaching us some really fun traditional games last week. We are very lucky that we still don’t have to hunt for our food as we think a few of us may have gone hungry! We all enjoyed some delicious cake on Friday also.

Year 2J
Welcome back for another fantastic term full of fun, making new
friends and of course lots of learning. Christmas will be here in
no time!

Enrol now for Prep 2016English
This Term Year Two are studying procedures within English. We are currently reading a very hilarious novel called ‘George's Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. George's Grandma is a grizzly, grumpy, selfish old woman with pale brown teeth and a small puckered up mouth like a dog's bottom. It’s so nice to hear the fits of laughter, giggles and cheer come out of the class’s mouths during reading. I think it proves just how much the class is enjoying our unit so far. Please ask your child to provide a recount of the story so far. They just may have you in stitches of laughter also.

Science - Toy Factory
In this science unit students are learning that pushes and pulls affect how an object moves or changes shape. The context of a toy factory, will involve the class making toys to present to prep. I hope this unit excites and engages students by making connections with what they already know while providing extensive opportunities to develop science knowledge and achieve the intended learning.

Last week was a very exciting week for the Preps and Year 1/ 2 class as we got to pick and taste our first lot of produce. The snow peas and lettuce went down a treat but the jury is still out for some children as far as the radishes were concerned. It is a wonderful experience to be a part of the whole gardening experiences the next venture is planting our turnips out and investigating the introduction of a chook yard for the school! Happy gardening everyone!
