St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School is an inclusive, faith based community grounded in Christian values. Faith in action is inherent through our Religious Education Program encompassing the teaching of religion and supporting the community in how to be religious in the particular way of the Catholic church and other Christian traditions. St Patrick’s aims to respond to the needs of the whole child: the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, communal and physical being. Here at St Patrick’s we value respect, acceptance, inclusivity, option for the poor, and nurturing of Catholic faith and personal spirituality.
In acknowledging that our local community consists of diverse cultures and religions, St Patrick’s supports the right of parents to choose the education they want for their children and is prepared to enrol children from all faiths. An acknowledgment that all students will participate in the Catholic Religious Education Program and an acknowledged willingness to commit to this mission and the ethos of a Catholic primary School are essential when seeking enrolment.
