About St Patrick’s Primary School

St Patrick’s Primary is a Catholic K-6, co-educational school located in the town of Walcha in the New England region of northern New South Wales. The Sister’s of Mercy, who continued to operate the school up until 1975 when the first lay Principal was appointed, established the school in 1911.

A number of significant upgrades have taken place at St Patrick’s over recent years, including the building of a new library. There is a range of technological resources for use in all classrooms. A safe playground is available for students with a covered play equipment area a major feature.


Classroom instruction at St Patrick’s School draws its content from the NSW Board of Studies Syllabuses involving the six key learning areas. Religious Education is also a major area of study, along with the Indonesian language, which is taught in classes from Kindergarten to year 6. 

School ethos

St Patrick’s students are encouraged to model Christ’s teachings; learn and develop their skills; build strong and positive relationships, explore their own values and focus on how they can support those most in need.
