Our Principal

Allora_Oct22-224.jpgOn behalf of the St Patrick’s School and Parish community, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our school.

As Principal I feel extremely fortunate – fortunate to be a part of a community where everyone belongs, feels valued and can succeed.

I believe that we can trace the characteristics of our community back to the Josephite Sisters, who came to Allora and established our school over 100 years ago. Built on shared values of love, dignity, integrity and justice - our community has thrived.

At St Patrick’s we believe it is important to treat each person with dignity by respecting their unique value and worth. Our interactions are based on being accountable for our actions, being trustworthy and conducting ourselves honestly and ethically. We support a positive learning environment that has relationships, fairness and inclusive practices at its core.

Having common goals for students, staff and families and for the welfare of the broader community are underpinned by our Catholic values; enabling us to achieve great things together!

At St Patrick’s we are firmly committed to working alongside our parents in carrying out the very great task of shaping the lives of the young people in our care. We strive to help our students grow in their awareness of God by immersing them in a genuine Catholic, supportive community. It is in this endeavour that we hope to nurture the development, of caring and justice orientated members of society.

We live out our vision of an inclusive community committed to high levels of learning for all.

Deciding on the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent will make. Please contact the school for further information and a personalised tour of the school.

God Bless,

Keith Blaikie
