How this school shows pride for both school and students

RECOGNISING students for their hard work and effort is important at St Patrick's Catholic Primary School.

Because of this, during this year's Catholic Education Week, Jessica Purvey from St Patrick's said they are going to be celebrating with some awards.

"We want to do something to recognise those kids that go a bit above and beyond around the school,” she said.

"Someone who you might see is there to serve others, as the disciples did.

"We're here to serve others in different ways, but it's also that we're all here on a learning journey as well, which is very important.”

This all spans from the school's core religious values.

"At our school, we feel like we're a community with love and joy, as well as hope and forgiveness. We live our life through Jesus,” she said.

"We're very proud of who we are as a school, and we see a lot of the actions of students being played out in everyday life as well.”

Ms Purvey said they're also proud of the effort the parents make within the school community.

"We have a great community with parents getting involved, we actually encourage the parent involvement through these activities,” she said.

According to Ms Purvey, their last activity was St Patrick's day where they brought parents in for a big morning tea.

"We have different celebrations that we focus on throughout the year, and it's great to see the growth of the students as we go along, and the pride they take in our school as well,” she said.
