On-going successes will encourage the development of a positive self-image, which will in turn allow the child to risk and accept failures without retreating from the learning setting. It encourages an awareness of what each child knows and what he/she needs to know in order to accomplish and achieve further. This requires teachers who emphasise the successes a child achieves and necessitates a positive approach to learning.

What is a Jesuit School? It is one based on Christian Humanism, which sees the growth of all the humane as important, and which knows that ‘the glory of God is man and woman fully alive’.
Hence we have always emphasised the development of ‘the whole person’ mind, heart, body, will; the intellectual and the affective, the spiritual and the physical, the imagination and the sense of critique. Our ideal is to see our students as unique and gifted, no matter the range. In traditional Jesuit terms, they are to be treated with ‘cura personalis’, individual care, ‘like the several instruments of an orchestra, each with its own timbre and quality’, so that each may play the part in the world that only he or she can fulfil, the role they are called to play in the Mind of God.
Our ideal graduates are to be ‘young men and women of competence, conscience and compassion’, with an attitude of excellence and service, knowing that they are called to be ‘men and women for others’. In the words of Ignatius, our young people are called ‘to praise, to revere and to serve’, and they are to do this by developing their talents, the potential within them. Their search should be to find God in the world, and in their hearts and minds, as they grow through life in their love of Christ and their neighbour. They should grow as young people able to use their judgement, to discern the direction of the paths into which they tend, whether such paths lead to greater love and truth or to hate and evil in the world. And they are to be young people of great heart, ‘fully alive’, and of great generosity: ‘Lord, teach me to be generous’ towards God and towards neighbour, was Ignatius’ own prayer.

The story of St Pius X School is steeped in the tradition of the Brigidine Sisters.
The Brigidine Sisters were founded in Ireland in 1807 for the purpose of providing a Catholic education to children. They were women of faith and hope, strong yet gentle in their love, in close union with Jesus Christ and in communion with all God’s people.
In the 1960s, Fr JP McCann approached religious orders of Sisters to take charge of a primary school being built in Adelaide. Mother Pius, the Provincial of the Brigidine Order in Melbourne, accepted this challenge with great strength and kindness. A community of sisters moved to South Australia for the sole purpose of opening a Catholic primary school in Windsor Gardens.
On March 4th 1962 St Pius X Primary School was officially opened with 200 students from Kindergarten to Year Four.
