Our vision for St Francis of Assisi Primary, is for our students to belong to a peaceful, Catholic community. One which celebrates its cultural diversity, is accepting of each child’s individuality, and strives to follow Franciscan traditions of responsibility, gentleness, respect, compassion, and generosity of spirit.
St Francis' mission is built upon the belief that a unique partnership exists between family, school and parish. At all times, our ethos and our commitment to the values of the Gospel drive us to keep our focus clearly on our students. And all learning builds on the rich foundation of Catholic traditions and values.
Our School PrayerPrayer is important at St Francis of Assisi Primary. Our school community has a special prayer that helps the children bring to mind the special gifts that St Francis brought to the world.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
