St Paul's is a co-educational Anglican school founded on the ethos and values of the Anglican Church. We are a multi-campus school with campuses in both Traralgon and Warragul. We are a community committed to learning and, as such, we strive to provide engaging and enriching learning experiences for all of our students. We aim to nurture every child's talents in areas of challenge and extending in areas of accomplishment. From the child-centered and play-based activities of our Early Learning Centres through to the mastery of critical skills and the pursuit of individual passions through a diverse range of specialist subjects and programs, St Paul's aims to foster the potential academic joy of learning which will be life long.
For us, learning is much more than that which takes place in the classroom. Our school offers a broad range of co-curricular programs, including sport, music, drama, and outdoor education. Our students are also active participants in their communities, contributing and raising awareness through service to others. There is a strong emphasis on cross-age mentoring and the provision of authentic, age-appropriate leadership opportunities for our students within our community.
Our focus is on effort and growth in learning and bringing out the best in every student. As you will see from our NAPLAN results, regardless of a child's academic level when they join us, we do make a difference well beyond what would usually be expected.
We also understand that not all learning can be measured through testing and that there is so much more to be considered when choosing a school. Our students are recognized as confident, reliable, and contributing members of their community. Employers will often seek out a St Paul's student for employment because of this reputation. As one local business owner said, "I have not met a bad one yet!"
Having graduates who are such fabulous young people does not happen by accident. We are blessed to have a healthy and supportive parent body, high-quality and committed teachers, and students who are fresh and eager to learn. Teachers who are new to our school often comment that they can "get on with teaching" rather than focus on behavior management and address students who are disengaged.
As a school that seeks to bring out the best in every child, we also offer a wide range of opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. We have an enormous range of co-curricular activities available across the school, and we offer academic enrichment and support opportunities as necessary. The school's documented history is aptly titled "No Ordinary Days," which reflects the reality that there is always something new and exciting happening at St Paul's.
You may also be interested to know that we are an accredited eSmart school, have been officially recognized by the Victorian Government for our commitment to creating a "health-promoting school," and we are working towards accreditation for our commitment to sustainability.
