Principal's Welcome

For parents who are experiencing their child going to school for the first time, or those who are relocating to the Rutherford area, this can be a time of enormous excitement and nervous trepidation.

St Paul’s is a ‘two-stream’ Catholic Parish school of over 400 students, ranging from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our school, which was founded in 1967 by the Sisters of Mercy, has established a strong tradition of academic, sporting and cultural excellence.

St Paul’s cares for the individual. Staff, parents and students all work together to ensure each student is respected and accepted as a happy individual.

Recognising that parents are the main and prime educators of their children, St Paul’s strives to work in partnership with our families. It is our aim to strengthen and support you as parents in the quality education of your child. It is certainly our privilege to work with you and to share this responsibility of helping your child prepare for the future.

Please take some time to look through our website and visit our Facebook page to see what St Paul’s is all about.

If you do decide to enrol at St Paul’s I would encourage you to become involved, as much as possible, in your child’s education and in the life of the school.
