Welcome to our new school blog
Welcome to our new school website & blog, where we will be keeping up our tradition of introducing new ideas and initiatives to our fantastic school community.
This school year St. Patrick’s have welcomed Jason & Harvey the dog, a new project that has injected enthusiasm and enjoyment for our reluctant readers. Harvey the dog loves listening to the children’s stories, and his owner Jason (who is fluent in doggy language) tells the children exactly what Harvey is saying.
We are almost ready to apply for our Active Flag award, and will have some new initiatives for those who need an extra carrot to get up and moving!
Watch this space for our inclusive school folder, where you can see all of the work the staff is promoting to include all members of our diverse school community.
Our new Parents Association have injected a wonderful sense of fun, and are organizing a Fun Family Bingo where Grannys and Grandads can join with Mums and Dads and grandchildren to win lots of fun prizes and make much needed money to provide exciting extra learning activities in St. Patrick’s.
We would like to thank our entire school community, staff, parents, children, and friends for all of their support over the years. We look forward to a wonderful new term and wish you all every good blessing throughout 2018.
Ms. Barnes, Principal
We in St. Pat's work as a team to nurture and motivate all the children in our care. We welcome children of all abilities and backgrounds and help them develop and appreciate their talents. We encourage everybody in our school community to show respect for each other and for our school.
The boys and girls had fun with Scott Ziglinski from 'Elementary Engineering on Mon. 12th March. He provided some great 'hands on' activities for our budding engineers in 2nd to 6th class.
Our school choir performed very well in Laudate 2018. Now they are busy practising with Tony Norton for our 6th class confirmation.
After Easter the children will be excited to observe eggs hatching in an incubator. These chicks will be looking for a home!
