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 recent Open Day and Principal's Presentation was a wonderful success, receiving terrific feedback from families about our staff and school. Enrolments for Kindergarten 2023 close on May 20th; places are filling fast so please ensure applications are received by then!
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.
We congratulate all students who represented St James at the recent Zone Swimming event at Murwillumbah and extend further congratulations to those students who will move on to the Diocesan Swimming event!
