St Patrick's School
Katanning

 

St Patrick’s Catholic School in Katanning aims to emulate Jesus through its motto of CONCERN by engaging children, teachers, parents, community and the parish to work together in a supportive and happy environment.

Our school acknowledges parents as the primary educators of their children, and aims to further develop each child intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually, creating lifelong learners who have the ability to draw upon processes and skills, to cope with future technologies in a changing society.

Our school strives to be accepting of multicultural and individual differences. It acknowledges the rights of children to be safe and values them through pastoral care.
