St Patrick's Parish Primary School is a Catholic school in the south west of Victoria with an enrolment of 174 students. St Patrick's was established in 1849 and has had associations with the Sisters of St Joseph of Cluny and the Good Samaritan Sisters.
At St Patrick's, our mission is, in the spirit of the Good Samaritan Sisters, to be a Catholic educational community, giving ourselves to goodness throughout our lives. We achieve this by nurturing, developing and celebrating faith, welcoming, including and supporting each other, inspiring and challenging each other through excellent teaching and learning, responding to the uniqueness of each person and enjoying life as part of a community.
St Patrick's is an accredited KidsMatter school where student wellbeing is a high priority. We seek to develop and enhance relationships between students, staff and parents in order to nurture the sense of community at our school.
St Patrick's offers specialist programs in visual arts, performing arts, physical education and Japanese and provides opportunities for students to participate in a number of extra-curricular activities.
Our school has modern facilities including open plan classrooms, a modern library and an ICT centre, as well as extensive grounds with ovals, an adventure playground, tennis courts and a passive play area.
