Vision, Mission and Charism


"Constant in Faith"


In the richness of our Catholic faith and tradition we achieve excellence.


In partnership, our St Paul’s school community and parish will:

  • give witness to the life and mission of Jesus
  • build and nurture positive relationships
  • provide a safe, inclusive, quality learning environment
  • develop socially and ecologically responsible citizens


St Paul's Catholic Primary School was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart, and due to this our charism is heavily influenced by the charism of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and the Josephites.

Mary MacKillop wrote in one of her many letters to her sisters to “Never see a need without doing something about it”. At St Paul’s we are influenced by this and as such we endeavour to strive to build within our school community the understanding of social justice and to respect the human dignity of all.
