What We Offer


Providing opportunities for individual growth

The St Paul the Apostle Primary staff is committed to providing opportunities for individual growth and is continually striving for excellence in learning and teaching. Our outstanding facilities and resources assist us to ensure the best possible learning outcomes for our students, and enable us to provide a range of high quality educational experiences.


The Learning Environment

We acknowledge the importance of a well-resourced, comfortable learning environment by:

  • ensuring that resources are used effectively
  • providing opportunities for all students to have access to technology
  • endeavouring to provide equipment appropriate to current technological advances
  • exploring options to provide a safe and happy playground

Our Library

Our commitment to enhancing our students' knowledge is evidenced by our well-stocked library, which showcases a wide range of children’s literature available for reading and borrowing. It also houses 14 computers, all with internet access to enhance student research. We also have a selection of parent resources covering a variety of topics. A frequently changing, theme-based focus area is on display at the library entrance, designed to capture the imagination of our students.


Technology for learning

We constantly update our technology facilities to keep pace with the changing world in which we live. We are a dual platform school after purchasing some Apple Mac computers which are currently being used in the senior classes. All classrooms have computers with network and internet access. Recently, each stage level received a data projector and wireless laptop to help enhance the students’ learning experiences. The staff and students also have access to digital still cameras and video cameras, and scanners to support their learning. The school also ultilises interactive whiteboards for use in every year level.


A safe and happy environment

As part of our mission to provide an environment where children feel safe and happy, we have opened a classroom at lunchtime. This room is called REST@St Paul’s.

It stands for:

R -
Respect
E -
Everyone
S -
Solving Problems
T -
Together

Students are personally invited to attend REST at St Paul’s if their teacher believes that they would benefit from the skills taught in the room at lunch time.

During their time at REST students learn social skills such as turn-taking, negotiation and compromise, through games. Students are also taught about self-esteem, confidence and behaviour management strategies through role play and discussions. Values such as respect, tolerance and empathy are also promoted through the REST program.

Students are encouraged to use the strategies learnt in REST when they make the transition back into the playground.


Learning at St Paul the Apostle

Currently our students are taught in grade levels and co-operative teaching is encouraged in order to cater for the diverse needs of all students. Team teaching occurs in Kindergarten so the children have the opportunity to form friendships across the entire year.  

Students are given the opportunity to participate within their stage in the Key Learning Areas of Religious Education; English; Mathematics; Human Society and Its Environment; Science and Technology; Creative Arts and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education.

St Paul the Apostle has specialist teachers for Physical Education and Music. In addition to these specialists, each grade is assigned research time where the teacher/librarian and teacher work co-operatively. During this time the students are introduced to Information Technology and encouraged to use it to develop their research skills.

The students have access to a learning support teacher and teacher’s aide, both of whom work in the classroom and also withdraw students for individual attention. During the English block, a literacy support teacher works with students in Years 1, 2 and 3.
