St. Agnes’ Parish Schools
The Catholic Schools in our Port Macquarie Community strive to witness to Christian values. The dignity and sacredness of each student is respected, as the teachers work with the parents to build up within the student an awareness of the presence of God. The teachers endeavour to foster a love for learning and to create a happy, accepting environment.
