Playgroup and Theraplay

At St Patrick's Primary School we value the relationships with our families.  We believe that when we enrol a student, we enrol the whole family.  That's why at St Patrick's we offer opportunities for younger siblings and their parents/carers to also engage with the school through our Playgroup and Theraplay programs.

Unfortunately the St. Patrick's Playgroup will not be running during Term Two.

However there will still be opportunities for fun and play through our Playgroup Email List!

Each week we will be sharing ideas and activities which you can complete at home. If you would like to be a part of this modified playgroup please contact Anne at


Theraplay is an engaging, playful, relationship-focused treatment method that is interactive, physical and fun.  It can be used for children and adults of all ages, but is most effective between the ages of 18 months and 12 years.  

Children who can benefit from Theraplay often show internalised behaviours such as withdrawal, depression, fearfulness or shyness, externalised behaviours such as acting out, anger and non-compliance, and also relationship or attachment problems.

Theraplay has been used with children with ASD, developmental delays and physical disorders quite effectively.
