A range of schools, groups and organisations play an important role in the life of St Paul's Catholic Secondary College. In particular, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, in Kempsey and St Patrick's Catholic Primary School in Macksville offer a seamless transition from primary to secondary school for families in the Macleay and Nambucca valleys.

St Joseph's Catholic Primary School
For more than 125 years, the academic success and spiritual and emotional wellbeing of each student has been the focus of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Kempsey.

Established in 1884, the school plays a vital role in laying the foundation for your child’s lifelong learning.  St Joseph's focuses on ensuring that each student develops into a happy, resilient and successful person, with strong morals and values. 

St Joseph's and St Paul's hold a range of events throughout the year to continue to enhance the relationship between the teaching staff of the schools and to ensure that students moving from the Primary school to the Secondary campus feel comfortable when starting their secondary education.
