Welcome to St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School
St Patrick’s is located in Walcha, which is 65km south of Armidale, 110km East of Tamworth and a two and a half hour drive from the coast either to Port Macquarie along the Oxley Highway or through Nowendoc to Forster.
Walcha Shire has a population of 3021 people. A few of our students live outside the shire while a number travel great distances to get to school. Some students can travel up to 45 minutes by car and bus to reach school.
Currently St Patrick’s has 94 students enrolled.
The motto of St Patrick’s School is “Growing in Wisdom and Faith”.
As a school community, our school’s mission is to provide an inclusive Catholic environment where the Gospel values of Wisdom and Faith can grow and be nourished. We aim to develop individuals to their full potential and instil in each person a sense of responsibility, self discipline and respect for the needs of others and for the environment in which we live.
