Principal’s Message

Welcome to the St Paul’s College Website.

St Paul’s College is a Catholic co-educational systemic school, serving the needs of students in the Macleay Valley.
It was established in 1980, when the two Catholic high schools at the time amalgamated to form Macleay Regional Catholic High School. However, in 1985, the school once again adopted the motto, ‘Let Your Light Shine‘.

Based upon Gospel teachings of dignity, equality, justice, and peace, the College incorporates a system of Pastoral Care existing within a Catholic environment and ethos.
St Paul’s invites individuals to share, celebrate, and grow in their faith, emulating Christ in the context of modern times.

For over forty years, this community has developed young men and women of incredible generosity, resilience, and faith by guiding them through their late childhood, through adolescence, towards adulthood.
Many achievements have been celebrated over these past four decades, not the least being the outstanding successes of our graduates in professional, academic, cultural and sporting pursuits.

The College has always sought to create a happy and caring environment, where students and staff are keen to arrive each morning.
Staff strive to provide a solid, comprehensive educational foundation by enabling each student to explore their own particular gifts in spiritual, academic, cultural, social, and creative fields.

Faith development and Catholic education is central to the existence of St Paul’s College – The College boasts a very strong Catholic culture with a vibrant prayer life. It is essential that every student participates positively, and actively, in Religious Education, irrespective of their own faith system.
The College community celebrates the main feasts of the liturgical year, and prayer is celebrated in small class groups, as year groups, and as a whole school. The College also participates in Parish liturgical celebrations, by playing an active role in rostering year groups to assist in Sunday Mass.
In addition to faith development, the College offers a formal Religious Education curriculum, from Year 7, through to Year 12.
