Welcome to our website.

2019 is underway and already it looks like being a busy year with lots happening in our school. This year we have 301 students in 15 classrooms with 44 staff. This year we welcomed 4 new staff members; Ms Lisa Donovan in the 5/6 area, Mrs Jess Courtney in the 5/6 area, Miss Amy Pemberton in the 3/4 area and Miss Harriet Place who is completing a traineeship. We also welcomed back from leave, Mrs Pru Darcy & Mrs Claire Powling.


In 2019 we have also continued a number of new initiatives started over the last few years. We have continued a journey into becoming a Professional Learning Community (PLC), a community where everyone takes responsibility for the learning of every child, a community where our staff endeavour to be the best teachers they can be and a community where all students are given the maximum opportunity to learn.  This journey is a continuation of our RtI- Response to Intervention program we were implementing for the last 6 years. This program looks at everything we do to help children reach their fullest potential and assesses how well we are doing with these programs.


Our school also has a continued focus this year to improve the wellbeing of all our students and will do so by continuing to develop the Resilience project. This project focuses on the 4 pillars of Empathy, Mindfulness, Gratitude and Emotional Literacy and we will be specifically looking at improve the Resilience & mental health of the students under our care. We also will be implementing the I can Imagination Club Program for those students who struggle socially and we are certainly looking forward to this new initiative.


By undertaking all of these initiatives we are certainly endeavouring to improve the educational outcomes for all our children. A great school however, is more than just the bricks and mortar and programs, it’s about the people within the walls. We are very lucky at St Patrick’s to have a dedicated staff, enthusiastic children, supportive parents and an interested school community, who believe in working towards improving our children and making their education as positive as it can be.


Our school is a beautiful place of learning- a place where the people make it what it is. At the core of my belief is the ethos that there is nothing more important than family. If you wish to become a part of our school and our school community, I hope that you will give of yourself to our school and become a part of our family. Our school is what you and the rest of our families make it and everything we do is in the best interests of our children. I look forward to hearing from you in regards to the education of your child/ren.

Yours sincerely,

Michael McKenzie
