We are proud to open up our new play areas. The long wait is over and our children can now enjoy playing Basketball, Netball and Downball during lunchtime and recess. We will also explore other sports such as soccer and volleyball and allow our children to use the running track to improve their running skills. This area is also scheduled for our PE lessons and will provide our main venue for our Twilight Sport Night.

Please feel free to visit our new play areas.

Welcome to our Virtual Tour of our Prep Learning Areas. Please feel free to move around and explore the entire learning area. You can click on any space to explore, use your touchpad, computer mouse and arrow keys to move around and zoom in and out of displays, look at resources and to get a snapshot of our Thinking Culture.

Our Principal, Mr Phil Doherty also welcomes to the school in the following video discussing the unique culture of St Paul the Paul School and the exciting learning possibilities that exist for our students.

We look forward to developing our Prep Orientation Weblink which will be available shortly.

Dear Parents and Carers

We hope that you have all had a relaxing, safe and healthy holiday. Welcome back to Term One 2021

Just a quick note at this stage to establish or check in on our Home / School Communications.

Late last year, we were encouraging our families to sign up to our new Home / School Communication App.

The App is called School Stream and this app will become our main means of providing you with up to date, real time news events and a means for you to contact the school, report absences and access purchasing facilities (through CDF Pay) for the Uniform Shop and Special Orders etc ( This facility is coming soon). There are links to the Parent calendar and school events. An important feature of School Stream is that it incorporates a ‘translation’ facility to convert the text to over 150 different languages.

Please note that School Stream is now our main form of communication. Our Website also provides important information and we now have a weblink for our new parents and children transitioning to our school.
In light of providing you with accurate and up to date information, please note that we do not use social media apps such as Facebook and Instagram for official school communications. We feel that School Stream provides a safe, unique multidimensional facility for our communication needs.

For those who didn’t receive an Invitational Email from School Stream please follow the link below ( You can also go directly to the App store and search for School Stream)

School Stream – our new School Communications App


Please note that we will continue to use Flexi Schools and our School Website in the short term to duplicate our messages.

In the meantime we will send out more detailed information on Wednesday 27 January regarding our Health and Safety considerations (in light of COVID restrictions) and also general information regarding the first day back for all children.


– Yr One to Year Six children return Friday 29 January 2021 – 8:55am – 3:25pm
