Testimonials

Wow! What an amazing opportunity for the kids (NASA Scientist Visit). Michael and Carolynne, on top of their ‘Wedding Singer’ excursion today and their trip to Scienceworks last week. ​Thanks for putting together such a fantastic program for them, I know it takes a lot of duck-paddling beneath the water to make these things happen! 

~ ST PAUL’S PARENT

I wanted to mention that the bus driver who drove the Gr 4s back from Burrinja today commented on how wonderful our students were. 

~ ST PAUL’S STAFF MEMBER

Like many parents, we are understandably very particular about the schooling environment that our child is exposed to and I must commend you and your team on creating a safe and nurturing learning environment for the students. We haven’t been privy to the ‘era’ before your time Michael but I agree with your previous comments to me, that the teachers and staff that have been with St Paul’s for a number of years have remained committed to the student’s happiness, well being and continued growth. 

You are doing a great job continuing to improve on this very high standard.

I remain pleasantly surprised with our child’s growth and enthusiasm about school – thank you for helping to provide such a strong foundation, building confidence for the children to make their own decisions about the present and the future (and step out of the comfort zone).

~ ST PAULS PARENT

Just wanted to say how lovely it was to be at prayer gathering yesterday and what a terrific job you do keeping all children engaged throughout. Two thumbs up! 

~ ST PAUL’S PARENT

Hi Michael & Helen (and St Paul’s team) – this has obviously been a mammoth effort with contribution from everyone. The new website looks and feels fantastic. From a new parent’s perspective, I think it will provide visitors and prospective families with a much stronger sense of the school’s warmth and identity. Great work ;o)
