Principal's Message

St Patrick’s has a long tradition of providing a welcoming and inclusive environment, where we foster a lifelong passion for learning in a Christ-centred community.

Our Catholic faith underpins all aspects of school life and is at the heart of everything we do. We develop in our students a deep understanding of their faith; a commitment to the Gospel values of mercy, compassion and forgiveness; and a love for God, themselves and others.

Our school focuses on the core value of respect for ourselves, others and the environment. We want our students to feel safe and nurtured in our community. We also want them to be challenged to take risks in their learning, and develop skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, creativity, resilience and confidence.

St Patrick’s Primary is committed to excellence in teaching and learning. We engage students in challenging learning through rich and meaningful experiences, while providing a supportive environment that nurtures the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of each student.

Parent involvement in learning is critical to success for each child. Therefore, we work in partnership with parents, to provide opportunities for families to be actively involved in learning and teaching, community life and regular conversation with their child’s teacher.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend to you a warm welcome to St Patrick’s Primary School, Blacktown. I encourage you to use our website to gain an insight into our school and community.
