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.
