Vision Statement
In our relationships – We love, respect and encourage one another, with the heart of Christ. 
In our classrooms – We teach and grow in knowledge with one another, through the wisdom of Christ. 
In our school and wider community – We look upon and support each other, with the compassion of Christ.


St. Patrick’s School aims to provide opportunities, in the context of the Catholic faith community; for our children to grow as people of faith, of worth, of self-discipline, learning skills appropriate to their present and future citizenship in our society. We believe our children will also develop respect for each other as children loved by our God as they work and play co-operatively.

Mission Statement

We will proclaim the mission of the Church by embedding the spirit of the Gospel in an integrated school culture of faith and life learning, whilst showing justice and equity for others.

We will value learning as a lifelong and continual process, that will allow our students and teachers to develop knowledge, skills and critical thinking together.

We will develop an Inquiry process for children to engage in critical thinking and learning through listening, questioning exploring and reflecting. 

We will continue to incorporate processes that will develop a critical social consciousness within the context of current and future global and local issues.

Democratic Principles

St Patrick’s School displays posters of democratic values. The flying of the Australian flag is a regular observance in our school at assemblies and important events. Through the integrated inquiry units of work the students undertake studies in the two dimensions of the Civics and Citizenship domain of Victorian Essential Learning Standard: civic knowledge and understanding and community engagement

The programs of, and teaching in, at St Patrick’s School support and promote the principles and practice of Australian Democracy, including a commitment to:

  • elected Government;
  • the rule of law;
  • equal rights for all before the law;
  • freedom of religion;
  • freedom of speech and association;
  • the values of openness and tolerance.
