About Us

St James Catholic Primary School is a friendly, welcoming and caring school which is firmly embedded within the parish. Our goal is to provide a high quality Catholic education, where students are encouraged to be Fully Alive in Christ in their learning and faith education. We believe that people achieve more when they feel happy, secure and valued.

Our philosophy is to educate the whole person. We want the children to enjoy their learning and we have high expectations for their spiritual, academic, creative and social progress.

The diverse needs of our students are met through a variety of programs which include weekly professional learning team meetings, Special Education program, specialist English teachers, and Indigenous support programs.

Specialist programs including dance, gymnastics, swimming and a variety of ball games, and Learning Support Assistants all help cater to the individual needs of students.

Team spirit is very much part of the ethos at our school and there is a high expectation that all staff, pupils and parents will work co-operatively, to make a positive contribution to the life of the school and to give their best.
