HOW TO ENROL
The mission of the Catholic School is based on the belief that every individual is called to communion with God. Access to St Paul's Catholic Primary School, Gracemere, therefore, is available to those who recognise and seek to respond to this call. The school recognises that the world today is a multicultural society and respects individual's rights to their own beliefs. In endeavouring to maintain a distinct Catholic character, the school actively promotes the evangelising role of the Church.
