It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to St Rita’s Catholic Primary School,
Our school has a rich tradition in providing a quality Catholic education to the children of Babinda and surrounds and being principal of this school is a great honor. My family and I have moved to Far North Queensland this year after living in Victoria, and I have spent the last 14 years working in Catholic schools in both the Ballarat Diocese and Archdiocese of Melbourne.
St Rita’s may be relatively small however we provide our students with outstanding learning opportunities. We pride ourselves on knowing each child both personally and academically in order to provide them with a highly personalised, interactive and engaging curriculum.
St Rita’s students are engaged in challenging learning experiences in classrooms that are well-equipped with modern technology. Interactive whiteboards, laptops and iPads have been successfully incorporated into planned teaching and learning. The school provides a nurturing and structured learning environment in each of our multi-aged classrooms.
Our teaching programs aim to educate the whole child. While academic success is important, it is equally important to ensure that the spiritual, intellectual, personal and interpersonal needs of each student is being met.
The life and teachings of Jesus Christ is at the center of all we do at St Rita’s. We’re inspired by his message to live out the Gospel values of Faith, Hope, Love, Service, Courage, Reconciliation, Community and Justice. These relate nicely with our school values of Learning, Respect, Community and Faith.
I look forward to building on the many strengths of our school and would invite prospective parents to book a tour to see all that we have to offer.
