A Message From the Principal
St Paul’s is a small school offering big opportunities and high quality education, with a history of academic excellence. We recognise that children learn at different rates and in different ways. Therefore, we provide learning experiences that are child centred, differentiated, relevant and meaningful.
St Paul's is also a place of spirituality, where students come to know Jesus through life at school. It is our goal each day for your child to experience this and find our school as a place of faith, friendship, joy, discovery, challenge and learning. St Paul’s cares for students and provides a safe, and nurturing environment.
The dedicated and committed staff of St Paul’s are aware of the special privilege they share with you in the education of your child. We work closely in partnership with you to assist your child to develop his or her full potential. Communication between school and home is a key priority for our staff members.
As a Christian school, we are nurturing within our students an inner compass of valuing and thinking in a way that brings about an holistic growth. As our students move from Kindergarten to Year 6 and beyond, they go with the knowledge that Jesus is their friend, that positive and caring relationships matter, and are enduring; and nothing is more important than being true to themselves. Our aim is to grow children into discerning, faith-filled, responsible, confident, and intelligent individuals who care deeply about the world in which we live. Developing a culture of understanding that is true to our Christian identity is at the forefront of all that we undertake.
A great school stretches far beyond being just about academic achievement. We live in a community that demands so much more from us. We encourage the children to use the wisdom they gain at school; to be critical and creative thinkers. They will be collaborating and imagining new ways of doing things for employment opportunities that don’t yet exist; and will need the problem solving skills to get there. Our students are taught to take risks, make mistakes, and be passionate - there are no limits. The students are taught that everybody’s ability can grow and when they believe this, their achievement improves significantly.
It is indeed a privilege to serve as Principal of St Paul's Primary School. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to find out more and I encourage you to visit and experience the warm and friendly atmosphere of St Paul’s first hand.
