Welcome to St Patrick's Primary School Pakenham

At St Patrick’s Primary School we believe that the social, emotional, moral, spiritual and physical wellbeing of our students is pivotal to student health, safety, learning and success.

We pride ourselves on being a welcoming school where everyone is valued and respected. Our committed and professional staff provide a safe, caring environment where we aim to engender a love of learning in every student.  We take our adherence to the Child Safe Standards very seriously and as a result take all reasonable care to avoid acts or omissions that may result in harm or injury to a student.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the Child Safe Officers at St Patrick's, Mrs. Meg Escalante or Mrs. Lisa McDonald by phoning 5943 9000.

St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School provides a comprehensive curriculum that caters for the individual needs of students. The learning is engaging, exciting and relevant. We utilise modern technology within contemporary learning spaces that are created and owned by the students. We encourage students to collaborate, listen, engage, inquire, question and create. We believe that strong links between home and school are vital and parents are offered many different avenues through which they can become involved in their child’s education.

Please feel welcome to make an appointment with the School Leadership at any stage should you wish to discuss any aspect of our school in greater detail.
