About Us

Our History

We have been on the St. Patrick’s site since 1911 and as such our buildings are Heritage listed and older style classrooms, mixed now with contemporary and modern modular buildings to house our growing population.

Our school is in the Parish of St. Michael’s Bell Park with our Parish Priest – Fr. Minh Tran. We currently have a school population of approximately 420. In 2023 we have 19 classrooms with a staff of 43 including registered class teachers, teachers’ aides and other support staff.

St. Patrick’s Primary School in Geelong West has a rich and proud history dating back over 110 years. Founded in the 1900s, our school has been a cornerstone of the local community for generations and has played a significant role in the education of countless children.

Throughout its history, St. Patrick’s has adapted and evolved to meet the changing needs of its students and the wider community. From its early days as a one-room schoolhouse to its current status as a thriving and modern primary school, St. Patrick’s has always been committed to providing a high-quality education to the children of Geelong West.

From the dedicated teachers who have called St. Patrick’s home over the years, to the countless students who have gone on to make a positive impact in their communities and beyond, our school has a rich legacy that we are proud to continue to build upon.

Whether you are a current student, a former student, or simply a member of the local community with an interest in our history, we invite you to explore the story of St. Patrick’s Primary School and to be a part of our ongoing journey.
