St Patrick’s School has a long, proud history as a Josephite school.  Founded by the Sisters of St Joseph, the charism of St Mary MacKillop continues to permeate the school and we are guided each and every day by her example.  We are blessed to be a part of the St Patrick’s Parish and give thanks for the wonderful work done and continued pastoral support provided to our school and families by Fr Garry McKeown and Sr Anne Hourston RSJ.


We are also truly blessed to have a staff of highly capable, hardworking and dedicated professionals who care deeply for the students in their care.  I express my deep gratitude to this incredible team for their continued commitment to providing high quality Catholic education with such energy and enthusiasm.  It has been an absolute pleasure to return to St Patrick’s in Term 3, 2019 to lead this wonderful team.  


At St Patrick’s we are committed to educating the whole child and providing an inclusive learning environment for all.  In moving forward, with a strong focus on student engagement, formative assessment and differentiation, we are committed to equipping our students with the fundamental skills and capabilities required to become successful lifelong learners.
