Principal's Message

Welcome to the St Patrick's Primary Blacktown website


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 to develop in our students a deep understanding of their faith, a commitment to 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 while being challenged to take risks in their learning and develop skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, creativity, resilience and confidence.

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

Our staff members are highly qualified, committed and caring. Literacy, Numeracy and Formation in faith are our major focus. The teachers are committed to professional learning to enhance their capacity to differentiate the learning and teaching to meet the needs of all learners.

Parent involvement in learning is critical to success for each child so we work in partnership to provide opportunities for families to actively participate in the learning and teaching, community life and regular conversation with your child’s teacher.

At St Patrick's our aim is foster thoughtful, resourceful, resilient and faith-centred students through a learning journey that will set them on the path to happy and rewarding lives. Together with their families we strive to enrich their learning with the gospel values of faith and love, based on the person of Jesus.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend to you a warm welcome to St Patrick’s Primary School and I look forward to a shared partnership in the mission of Catholic education.
