Welcome to St Laurence's Parish School Forbes

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 this 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 Laurence’s is a co-educational Kindergarten to Year 6 school which is part of a system of Catholic schools within the Diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes.Centred on the person of Jesus, St Laurence’s Parish School community develops and nurtures the faith of each child and through an extensive curriculum educates all children to achieve their full potential.

Principal's Welcome Message

Welcome to St Laurence’s Parish School. In the tradition of the Catholic faith, our school strives to be a truly Christian community and, as such, attempts to provide an environment which encourages teachers, children and parents to work together, worship together and share friendship together. We are a welcoming, caring and inclusive community where all are welcome and every child participates fully in the life of our school. Our school is an exciting and enthusiastic place of learning where we work in collaboration to create a contemporary educational environment for every child in our care. A dedicated and professional staff team bring to life 21st-century quality teaching and learning and St Laurence’s is a school of great reputation, with a strong curriculum embedded in contemporary learning approaches. It is hoped that our website will provide a window into our school community and the rich relationships and learning that form the fabric of our school. Thank you for visiting our page and may we always walk humbly with our God.

Yours in partnership
