St James Primary has a proud tradition of excellence. Excellence in Catholic Education, faith, academia, the arts and sporting avenues.
Students at St James are known and loved and our focus is on every child - every day.
St James Primary is in Banora Point, Northern New South Wales. Our school nurtures students from Kindergarten to Year 6 and is an integral part of the St Joseph’s Catholic Parish community in Tweed Heads, as such we are a prominent partner in the evangelising mission of the Church.
St James Primary School strives to be a Christian family centred around Jesus Christ and his teachings. The Catholic Identity and tradition of the school, therefore, is characterised by Christian attitudes, values, and practices in a welcoming and caring educational environment. Each student’s personal growth and the pursuit of learning within the Catholic context is nurtured, promoted, and celebrated in partnership with parents, pastors, parish, and the wider community so that all can have life in all its fullness.
Our students participated in our annual athletics carnival today, basked in glorious sunshine. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and participated with joy, endeavour and sports-person-ship; well done kids!
It was amazing to have the student disco back on the calendar, which enables our kids to experience the fun and joy of dancing and singing once again! Students had a fantastic time and we thank the parent organising committee who facilitated this event.
We extend our best wishes and love to all Mothers and Mother Figures. On Friday, May 6th we held our special Mother’s Day breakfast at school and we hope everyone enjoyed this celebration, especially as we gathered once again as a community.
Our Year 6 students were inducted as leaders through our house system: Ryland - Learning for life; MacKillop - Seeds of justice; Hanly - Strength and gentleness & Polding - Stewards of creation. We look forward to their energy and input that they will present to the school in various ways during the year ahead.
