St Patrick’s School is true to its mission of being a welcoming faith community, centred on the person of Jesus Christ. Visitors to the school often comment on the warmth of the school community, demonstrated by the staff, students and families of the school. As an integral part of the Catholic Church, our mission is also to help develop the full potential of each person, drawing on the riches of the past and present and fostering hope in the future. Even though St Patrick’s is only a very small school with a varying enrolment of between 60 and 80 students, children are encouraged to participate.

Taking Enrolments for 2017 –
We are now taking enrolment applications for next year. To assist in planning and resourcing we are asking parents to make contact with the office if they have not done so already. If you know of someone that is considering St Patrick’s for their child / children, please ask them to contact the school office.
Last Friday’s athletics day was run and won by team Rynne with a very close second place going to Lynam. Thank you again to all of our parents both in the support they offered in cheering on the students but also in working alongside our teachers in the running of the events. In total four records were broken over the course of the day. Congratulations to Sophia, Daniel, Georgia and Emily for their record breaking efforts.
Yesterday, students from C&K Kindy and Headstart, teachers, carers and parents joined our school community for a wonderful demonstration by the St Joseph’s Junior Band and the St Joseph’s String Ensemble. A total of 7 pieces were played for the audience who were riveted to their seats for the entire performance. A big thank you goes to Fiona and Joshua from C&K Kindy and Headstart for facilitating their visits with their children. Thank you also goes to the teachers and students of St Joseph’s for taking the time to come and play for us. Many of the St Joseph’s students were able recall for our students their recorder playing experiences at primary school with some of them even having played the ukulele, both instruments currently played by the students at St Patrick’s Allora.
Glengallan History Performance
Today the students from Year 5/6 performed skits that formed part of the history unit they covered this semester on early colonial Australia. As part of the display they also presented the dioramas that they created in their history lessons. Attending parents and friends were thoroughly entertained. Well done Mr Clarke and the students of Glengallan.
