Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to the St Kevin's Catholic Primary School website.  Established on the land of the Turrbul people, St Kevin's prides itself on being a safe, welcoming and inclusive community. We place a high priority on student performance by nurturing each child's potential to thrive in an ever-changing world.  

Inspired by our patron Saint Kevin and Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop, our Mission Statement highlights the approach through which students are motivated to be the best versions of themselves that God created them to be.  Our focus on virtues education provides a solid foundation on how the St Kevin's community lives and learns just as Jesus did.  As a Catholic school, we embrace a “Head, Heart and Hands" approach, empowered by our virtues to enhance and forge character everyday through compassionate thoughts and actions.

Catering for students from Preparatory to Year 6, St Kevin's staff are an exceptional, hard working group. Students are encouraged to 'S.H.I.N.E.' by being curious learners who respectfully question and challenge the status quo. We use the Australian Curriculum and the Brisbane Catholic Education Religion Curriculum with learning and teaching that is targeted to each student. We promote respectful relationships and positive behaviours that foster a supportive and nurturing environment.  The established pride is evident as soon as you walk onto our campus. This strong sense of school spirit and ethos combined with the modern and contemporary facilities and education make St Kevin's a school of choice for many students in our local area.

A wide range of services are available to assist students and their families, including a Student Pastoral Counsel and a School Counsellor. There is a wide array of extracurricular activities for student participation including the Environmental Crusaders club, the Student Buddy System, Robotics Club, various sport programs and a vibrant Japanese and music curriculum. We also provide the opportunity for external lessons in speech and drama, chess and instrumental lessons.

We have a very involved and supportive community who are dedicated in their support for our school.  We are proud of this partnership and families are encouraged to actively participate in the wider school community where possible.

As Principal of St Kevin's Catholic Primary School, I look forward to welcoming you to our community. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information or if you would like to organise a school tour through one of our friendly front office staff.
