School Principles


School Logo

St Patricks Primary School logo

Our School logo is representative of who are as a school. At the centre is the Chi Rho Cross as a sign of belief, strength and courage. The green line represents Mumbulla Mountain, which is our beautiful backdrop and a sacred site for the local Indigenous people. The red and yellow represent the hills that fill our valley and the pastures of our local farmers.
The blue waves represent our connection to the coast and the creeks and rivers that provide water and life to all in the valley. The green, red and yellow are also the colours of our sports houses.
“Christ With Us” was a prayer written by St Patrick himself, which is part of our School prayer that we celebrate this with our children.

Our Patron Saint

Known as the Apostle of Ireland, St Patrick devoted his life to sharing the ‘good news’. It was on his escape from captivity in Ireland that he decided to devote himself to a missionary life and eventually return to educate the people of Ireland and enable their freedom. It is St Patrick’s strong view of his mission and his love of Christ on which we base our vision.

Our Parish

We place great importance on developing positive links between family, school and parish. It takes a working partnership to continue to develop a child’s faith that starts in Kindergarten and grows and strengthens through the primary years.
