Saint John’s Parish Primary School    ……..

Welcome to St John's Parish School Trangie

Our School

We would like to acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional lands of the Aboriginal people and their many custodians. We pay our respects to both present and past elders and the continuing custodians of these land. May we listen with great care to the heartbeat of Aboriginal lands and to its people who have cared for it so well and for so long.

ST JOHN’S PARISH SCHOOL

On the 16th July 1914, a community of five Mercy Nuns arrived in Trangie to establish the first Convent and teach at a school to instruct Catholic children.

The Parish Church where Mass was provided only once a fortnight, served as the Primary School.

The Trangie Convent of Mercy remained open until the end of 1964 when it was decided that the nuns would reside in Narromine and travel each day to teach in Trangie.

The Sisters continued to teach in Trangie until the end of 1981. Since then, there have been lay Principals and staff.

Father Walter Curran was the first Parish Priest at Trangie. The Sisters of Mercy was founded by Sister Catherine McAuley. Due to their significance in the history of the Catholic School community of St John, the sporting teams are named Curran and McAuley in their honour.

St John’s Parish School celebrated 100 years of Catholic Education in Trangie in 2014.

 

Principal's Welcome Message

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school. I trust your association with our wonderful school will be rewarding, fulfilling and enjoyable for your family and especially for your child.

Our school is an integral part of St Carthage’s Parish. Catholic values and traditions are taught in a formal Religious Education program and are a guide for all that we do throughout the school.

Our core task is education. Our staff devote their classroom time to the tasks of teaching and learning. Assessment and reporting are ongoing features of our curriculum.

We recognise that each child is unique and has a right to develop his/her individual talents, especially in developing meaningful relationships with God and with fellow human beings. St John’s is a Catholic school where parents and teachers strive together to reach the full potential of each child spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically.

Our school needs the support of all parents. Each has his or her unique contribution to make: some special quality that can help build a community that really cares for children. We hope that you will experience a sense of warmth and welcome and that there will be a rich sharing of ideas, talents and enthusiasm as together we go about our work of helping our children to learn and grow.

Our¬†website contains information that I hope may assist you to settle into our school. Should you have any queries or wish to discuss matters concerning your child’s education, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s classroom teacher or myself personally.

I look forward to the partnership we are going to share, of giving your child the best education possible. We look forward to you taking the learning journey with us.
