Dunnstown – St Brendan’s Primary School
St Brendan’s Primary School in Dunnstown is a small rural school located approximately 11 kilometres east of Ballarat. Since 1858, St Brendan's School has provided Catholic education to the children of Dunnstown and its surrounds. The school provides opportunities to educate all children in a happy, caring and supportive environment in a spacious, picturesque, country setting.
St Brendan’s aims to create an atmosphere in which both children and staff grow and develop as a Christian community loved by God. We offer the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that will enable the children to lead full Christian lives and be able to play an active role in their community. The staff aims to engender a sense of welcome and belonging within the wider community of home, school and parish by building positive and respectful relationships.
The school encourages the participation of the parent body and acknowledges the supportive and dedicated commitment of the parent and wider community. The St Brendan's community is justifiably proud of its heritage. The school looks to the future with a sense of optimism, knowing that the children who attend St Brendan's are receiving a creative, sound education in a modern and well-resourced school.
