Our Story

St Francis of Assisi Primary Glendenning opened in 1991 and has been established on its current site since 1993.


We are a welcoming community that works closely with our local parish and families of Good Shepherd, Plumpton.

Today, the grounds of St Francis of Assisi Primary are attractive, sizeable, and set in a natural environment. The timber buildings form the main physical feature of the school and house each grade group.

Each of our classrooms, from Kindergarten to Year 4, have three learning areas connecting to a central space. These grades have wet areas, integrated technology (interactive whiteboards and wireless access), as well as outdoor learning areas. The Year 5 and 6 classrooms are individually setup with integrated technology and devices.

Our school also has many wonderful facilities, such as a basketball court, expansive grass areas and canteen. Our school environment is filled with many plants and shelter areas, which makes coming to school every day enjoyable.

Working together with parents in Strength and Gentleness describes the hopes of our community, and is the legacy of St Francis. Working together is an essential part of our foundation. It helps nurture the development of your child.



Vision

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.

 

Mission

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 Prayer

Prayer 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.
Amen.
