Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St James Primary School – Learn and Act with Heart and Mind. We are proud of our school motto and as a community, we feel honoured to work together with parents to help all our students grow to be the best they can be.

Our school is a warm and inviting community, that is passionately committed to the learning and development of our students. St James is an exceptional learning environment, where all students are nurtured and supported to achieve and exceed their potential within a caring Catholic community.

At St James we believe we are blessed to work in partnership with parents and families to support the growth and learning of our students. At our school, we believe in developing the whole child – their faith, emotional, social, physical and mental wellbeing and learning.

Our school has an outstanding reputation for establishing high expectations and achieving excellent academic results. We provide quality education through an excellence in learning and teaching, together with a strong focus on wellbeing. Each teacher at St James is a passionate educator, with a love of learning. They are committed to the development and learning of each student. In addition to high quality teaching and learning in each classroom, St James also provides specialist lessons and extra-curricular experiences in Italian, Arts, Technology, Instrumental Music and Physical Education.

St James Primary School is situated on Kirkland Avenue, overlooking picturesque views of Brisbane City. Our school has a treasured relationship with the parish community. It is through our vibrant and contemporary Religious Education program and the religious life of the school, that we ensure each child's faith development is fostered.

​St James is a small school with a big heart! If you share our educational vision and would like to learn more about our community, please contact us and discover what St James could do for your family.
