Why Choose St Paul's

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important educational decisions you will make.

As parents, carers or grandparents you have a choice - and the right - to provide your child with the best education available.

The Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle proudly hosts some of the best schools in Newcastle, Maitland, the Hunter and Upper Hunter, Lake Macquarie and Manning Regions.

St Paul’s Primary Rutherford offers educational experiences that forms the student or young person as a person of integrity, compassion, faith and wisdom. We work closely with our Rutherford Parish and the Region of Chisolm to enhance a student’s identity in their faith community.

We have a supportive community of teachers, clergy, parents, support staff, carers and an active Parents and Friends Association who work together for the ultimate good of our students. We all work to encourage success, promote self-discipline, support creativity and instil compassion.
