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.

The next P & F Meeting will be held on Wednesday 16 August at 7pm in the Library.
It’s a huge week in the Library next week where we will be celebrating Book Week from Monday the 21st to Friday the 25th August. On Monday the 21st at 8:40 we will hold our
Book Week dress-up parade. Students will come dressed as their favourite book character and are encouraged to bring a copy of the book to school. Prizes will be given for the most creative costumes in each class.
Readers Cup competitions will be held in each class on Monday 21st August. St Patrick’s Storytelling on Monday 21st August at 2:30 – 2.55, all parents welcome. A shortlisted book will be chosen by each teacher and students will nominate which story they would like to hear, without knowing which teacher is reading each story.
We will also be hosting a Book Fair which will run from Monday 21st August until Wednesday 23rd August. I will be opening up the fair at 8:00am each morning and on
Monday I will keep it open until 3:30pm for those of you who may like to come in the
afternoon. If before or after school times don’t suit, you may come in during school
I look forward to seeing you at the Book Fair. Remember, a percentage of every dollar
you spend is then donated to the library by Carnival Book Fair.
Southern Downs Success
Last Friday the Southern Downs Athletics Carnival was held at Allora State School. Twenty of our students made up the strong Central Downs Team.
All students represented their school and region proudly. Notably, Patrick was awarded the Under 9’s Age Champion medallion and Darcy was awarded the Under 10’s Runner Up Age Champion.
As a result of their efforts, six of our students have been nominated for the upcoming Darling Downs Athletics carnival to be held on Tuesday 29th of August. Congratulations and good luck to George, Porscha, Jack, Darcy, Ella and Patrick .
