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 are cared for and valued as individuals.

St James Primary School is located 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 are 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.
