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.

ANZAC Day March on the 25th April – All students are urged to march as a school on ANZAC Day. This is a culturally valuable glimpse into our nation’s history and a way of showing our respect for those that have fought and those that are still fighting to preserve our free Australian way of life and to defend the rights of others.
All students are to meet at the corner of Herbert and Drayton Streets outside of the Senior Citizens Centre in their formal day uniforms by 10:30am Tuesday morning. As in previous years, our students will march with other schools and various local organisations down to the Allora War Memorial Gardens on Warwick Street. The service is expected to be finished by twelve o’clock. I look forward to joining with our teachers and students in marching with our community on this very special day.
PARENT / TEACHER INTERVIEWS
Starting Tuesday 2nd May- Parent teacher interview preference sheets will be sent home on Thursday. As soon of the majority of these have been collected, interview times will be allocated and parents/carers will be notified. As mentioned in the form it is very important, where applicable and possible, to have both parents/carers at the meeting. The partnerships we establish needs to be visible to your children.
A wonderful day of competition was enjoyed last Wednesday by the students, families and teachers of St Patrick’s Allora and St Francis de Sales Clifton. All of our students, showed resilience, grit and determination in completing their events. Well done to all of the students.
