  • Photo Catch-up Day

    A reminder to all of our families that photo catch-up day is on Wednesday 2 December (next week). If any student did not have an individual photo taken, or any family ordered a family photo and it was not taken, please email your classroom teacher so that we can ensure that you are on the list to have the photo taken next week. Year 6 students will also have a graduation photo taken, so we ask all Year 6 students to be ready for their photo next week. Please ensure that all students that require a photo are in full summer uniform (not sports uniform, even if you have PE that day).

  • Governance | St Patrick's Primary School Kilmore

    School Governance and Policies The governance of a school takes many forms such as government-mandated curriculum or policies, external reviews, internal policies and reporting, strategic planning, parent-based committees such as the Parents and Friends or governance committees such as the School Advisory Board. Some of that information can be found below. St Patrick's is a MACS school St Patrick's is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them. Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures. More information on MACS is available at macs.vic.edu.au . ​ Democratic Principles ​ St Patrick's is committed to the principles of a liberal democracy. We believe in an accountable, democratically elected government. We respect and observe the rule of law, and believe that no person is above the law. We believe in equal rights for all before the law, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender or other attributes. We believe not only in the freedom of religion, but also the need to practice tolerance and understanding of others' beliefs. We believe in the value of freedom of speech and freedom of association, but also acknowledge that we have the responsibility not to abuse this freedom. We believe in the values of openness and tolerance, and value and respect all members of the school community regardless of background. ​ ​ Statement of Philosophy ​ St Patrick's Statement of Philosophy, including the school's vision, values and how the school enacts these, can be found in the Statement of Philosophy, which can be found here . ​ ​ School Advisory Council ​ The School Advisory Council provides advice on education matters relating to the school.
