Dear Parents & Caregivers,


Welcome to the community of Mt St Patrick Primary School, Murwillumbah.

We hope your association with the school is a happy and rewarding one and we look forward to working with you during the time you and your child/ren are members of our community.


We are committed to our students and to our parish-school community. We act out of shared values and beliefs, and shared and agreed practices and procedures with consistent approaches.


The school aims to assist in the development of the full potential of each child within the atmosphere of a caring Christian Community. As a Catholic School the reason for our existence as a separate education system, is to facilitate the faith development of each child.  However, this is not done in isolation, or is it something separate and added on to the curriculum; it is that which permeates all aspects of life within our community.


Since Mt St Patrick Primary School is a Parish School we strive to foster a sense of belonging to the Parish community.  This is done firstly through efforts to develop a strong sense of community within the school and through involvement in liturgical celebration in the Parish church either as a school community or as part of the wider Parish community.  In this, as in all aspects of school life, we recognise the vital role of you, the parents, for it is your involvement in the life of the parish that will complement what is being done at school.  We see the school as working in partnership with you to ensure the best possible education for your child, now and for the future.


The staff at Mt St Patrick Primary School is committed in providing an effective education that endeavours to meet the social, spiritual and academic needs of all students.


Mr. Brendan Ryan
