We at St James the Apostle Primary School are very proud of our dedicated staff, supportive and involved community and the wonderful children who attend the school.
If you already have children at our school, we look forward to continuing our partnership with you. For new families considering enrolment at St James, we would welcome the opportunity to present to you the great educational opportunities that our school has to offer.
Our aim is to create an atmosphere of faith and a sense of community in which all can participate and feel welcome. We look forward to journeying with you, celebrating our faith and belief in God, encouraging, supporting and caring for each other as we face the challenges that are ahead.
At St. Peter Apostle Primary School, we recognise that each person is special and we aim to provide an education in an atmosphere of love, support, trust and understanding.
We endeavour to meet the needs of all children, parents and staff. As part of the community of St. Peter Apostle Mission Parish, we foster an environment where we all may grow in faith.
