Mr Peter Green


St Patrick’s Primary School is a very well resourced, modern primary school that was completely rebuilt in 2006 and underwent further major extensions in 2010. It is now a state of the art educational facility rich in technological resources. An all purpose hall was included in the school makeover and this outstanding school asset completes a wide range of attractive, safe and in many cases shady play areas for students.


Because Australian Schools are very much in a transitional stage in respect to curriculum, the curriculum at St Patrick’s Primary School encompasses Religious Education along with the six key learning areas of the Board of Studies of New South Wales Syllabuses. Aspects of the new “Australian Curriculum” will be introduced as they are released into the broader Australian educational community.

School ethos

St Patrick’s Primary School is a place of quality education, opportunity and growth. In a community of faith and love the school seeks to have community members bring out the best in one another. The school also endeavours to inspire its community to be a people of Jesus and create a learning environment where everyone is challenged and supported and all students are equipped with the skills and knowledge for them to thrive in an ever changing and challenging society.
