Our School

St Paul Apostle North Primary School

St Paul Apostle North is a Catholic learning community that inspires, challenges and engages all to become inquisitive global citizens, grounded in faith and inclusive of others, with an intrinsic desire to make a difference.

 

St Paul Apostle North – Igniting the Mind and Spirit.

St Paul Apostle North Catholic Primary School is situated in a peaceful, residential area adjacent to Churchill Park Reserve, close to sports grounds and recreational activities. We are characterised by our safe and stimulating environment.

Our students come from diverse cultural backgrounds. This rich cultural diversity is a great strength which enables our community to genuinely embrace our differences and to respectfully share perspectives, enhancing knowledge, understanding and harmony. Our Respectful Relationships curriculum and continued commitment to “BeYou” (formerly KidsMatter) complements this.

Our commitment to family engagement and our relatively small size allows for meaningful student interaction, the nurturing of relationships and the building of self-confidence that is essential for learning and life. Building positive relationships is the key to knowing our students’ needs and providing a differentiated curriculum to support their learning development.

The school offers a balanced curriculum based on the Victorian Curriculum and the Catholic Education Melbourne Pedagogy of Encounter, with authentic links to faith and life. There are specialist teachers who work part-time in the following areas: Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Physical Education and LOTE –Mandarin. The school provides Literacy and Numeracy support for students through our differentiated learning programs, supported by our rigorous assessment structures, which provide the data for our educators to develop personalised and scaffolded learning tasks.

We believe in being proactive and offer a range of support programs that build academic as well as interpersonal and personal skills. Our Religious Education Leader, Learning and Teaching Leader and Learning Diversity Leader work together with the Principal to support the professional development of staff to ensure continuous school improvement.

Our grounds are safe and attractive with excellent play areas for sports, creative play and peaceful contemplative zones. St Paul Apostle North, Endeavour Hills builds authentic partnerships with parents and the wider community. Our positive, supportive relationships and engaging learning opportunities ensure personal success for each student.

We challenge and support our students to be independent thinkers, problem solvers, and compassionate members of society who truly believe they can make a difference, and who continually strive to do so.
