Principal's Message

The time your child will spend in Primary School is a most significant period in your child’s life and in the life of your family. Catholic education looks at the whole person. For children, education primarily occurs in the home. This is particularly true of the spiritual growth of your child. The Catholic School, as part of the parish, supports the family in this development. Therefore, the full benefit of the Catholic school occurs when you enable the school, the family and parish to work in harmony to create a true environment for faith development.

As a school we follow the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and integrate His message of love into our daily activities. We strive for excellence in all academic areas and we are very proud of our students’ successes. All students are encouraged to put forth their best efforts and are challenged each day by their teachers to reach their potential.

At present all children are involved in our Ambassadors of Peace program. This program highlights the value of living in peace, living with inner peace and living in peace with the environment. We recognise that parents make an important contribution to the education of their children and welcome their active involvement and participation in the life of the school. Many opportunities are available for you to be involved in our school.

The staff at St Paul of the Cross will work in partnership with you in meeting your child’s needs. We will guide, support and assist your child in every possible way and we take a genuine interest in your child’s welfare.

Our website is designed to assist you in becoming familiar with the operation of our school so that you are able to support us in the education of your child. Evidence suggests that when parents are actively involved in their children’s learning, educational outcomes are maximized.

Let us bring to life the words of our motto “We belong Together” .
