Welcome to Padbury Catholic Primary School.
It is with great pride that I welcome you to the Padbury Catholic Primary School website. We are a double stream, co-educational Catholic school community from Pre Kindy (3 Yr Olds) to Year Six, founded on the traditions of the Sisters of Mercy. Our school is a community that places Jesus at its centre and we strive to follow in Jesus footsteps every day. We strive to build an exciting and dynamic curriculum and learning experience, enabling our students to flourish in all aspects of their lives as we focus on educating the whole person.
Our staff are enthusiastic, highly dedicated and committed to nurturing the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and social needs of our children. It is of great importance to us that our children are happy, feel safe and secure and experience success and confidence. Our learning environment is built upon a foundation where children belong and are valued and respected and where there is a focus on nurturing our children to become active, faith filled and responsible people.
Our students are blessed with many diverse learning opportunities both in specialist classes of Music, Physical Education, History, STEM, Library and Italian, as well as learning opportunities through our Extension program, Student Leadership, Instrumental programs, Swimming and Netball programs, Tennis, senior Camp and Sustainability projects. Students with learning needs are very well supported through such programs as Reading Recovery, Levelled Literacy Intervention and EMU.
Technology plays a significant part in the life of our school with iPads, computers and smart boards in all classrooms and a state-of-the-art Maker Space, which allows for 21st century learning to occur for all children as well as ensuring learning is exciting, meaningful, current and alive.
Our committed staff are supported by a vibrant and active school community involved in many aspects of school life. Strong parent-teacher partnerships are valued, and we support the important role that parents have to play in developing their child’s potential for learning. This partnership is founded on a spirit of mutual respect, cooperation, communication and involvement. Families are welcomed into the school at all times and their contribution to school life is highly valued.
Padbury Catholic Primary students enjoy modern classrooms, a large undercover area and hall, a natural landscaped play area for our junior students and spacious sporting and play areas for our senior students. We also cater for busy families who require Before and After School Care with our OSH facility on the school site.
As a school community we are very proud of our school, our excellent facilities and the quality of our learning programs. In exploring this site, we hope you gain a sense of this and we encourage you to contact the school for further information or to arrange a tour so you can get a feel for what Padbury Catholic Primary is all about – living our motto of ‘Love One Another’ each day.
