St Patrick's School provides Catholic Education for the students in Holbrook and surrounding areas. Our current enrolment is 49 students. The school's motto is 'Pray, Live and Learn in Christ' and this provides the focus for actions of the members of our school community. Our school is proud of the students' achievements across all the Key Learning Areas (KLA's).
Each year we participate in a self evaluation process. From this, the School Annual Report is published listing our achievements for the year and our targets for the future.
Our targets for 2017 are:-
Our school ensures it provides the educational opportunities available in larger schools whilst maintaining the close and supportive environment of a small school. Our school pursues excellence. This pursuit occurs across the school in classrooms and in the extracurricular opportunities made available to students. Our school has the best of both worlds. We are big enough to ensure children have a wide range of opportunities whilst small enough to foster close relationships between parents, teachers and students.
Our school boasts experienced and committed teachers who strive to achieve the best results possible for every child within our school. We have a strong emphasis on recognising and rewarding positive behaviour. As a small school, this is evident in the caring manner in which staff and students relate to each other. We are working at implementing a student welfare program based on the 'Making Jesus Real' program, supported by a Discipline Policy based on the Restorative Justice model.
As a co-educational systemic Catholic School the school operates under the guidelines and policies of the Catholic Schools Office in Wagga Wagga. We welcome all to our school community and know that children will benefit from and enjoy the years they spend in a Christian environment at our school.
