St Paul Apostle Parish was founded in 1980. The parish motto “One Family” reflects unity in diversity for this dynamic multicultural Catholic community.
St Paul Apostle South School commenced in 1981 with the support of the Presentation Sisters. A second parish school (St. Paul Apostle North) was established in 1985. Currently, the two parish schools work effectively and harmoniously together.
In 1998 the Passionist priests assumed pastoral leadership with Father Xavier, our current Parish Priest, being appointed in 2016. The Passionists have added a strong spiritual dimension to the school with their focus on families and constant support and generous presence in the school.
St. Paul Apostle South School is a Catholic Primary School that promotes, teaches and lives by the Gospel values and Catholic tradition. Our School community supports each child to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically and intellectually so that they can find a worthwhile role in society.
