St Agnes’ Primary is a 3 stream coeducational school proud to play an important part in the Catholic Church’s mission in Port Macquarie. We have strong Parish links and our parents play an active role in the operation of our school. Daily prayer is important and liturgy is celebrated regularly. We strive to be a happy school that builds community.
Our main focus is the children in our care. We aim to promote their fullest personal growth through a curriculum and pastoral care system that caters for their spiritual, academic, social, physical and emotional needs. The desire to maintain strong academic standards is an ongoing focus for our school. We value prime teaching time and continue to put increasing emphasis on the teaching of Literacy and Numeracy.
The Professional Development for our staff has an ongoing focus on quality teaching initiatives. St Agnes’ has installed interactive whiteboards in all classrooms. Staff and students have embraced new ICT initiatives enabling our students to have excellent exposure to the technology shaping the 21stcentury.
Our motto of “Grace and Truth in Christ” and the belief we have in our Catholic Tradition inspires us to strive to be a School that strengthens faith, promotes respect and acceptance and builds community at all levels of the School.
Our aim to develop each child to their fullest potential is planned through a varied curriculum that includes all Key Learning areas, complemented by many initiatives including specialist music lessons, an optional band program, and after School Art, Dance and Drama classes.
