"I am committed to ensuring students in rural and remote areas receive high quality educational and wellbeing experiences."
Miss Aislinn Callinan - Years 3-6 Teacher
After growing up in Brisbane, I completed a Bachelor of Creative and Professional Writing, then went on to study a Masters of Primary Education while working as a Governess on cattle stations in Northern Queensland. My first teaching position was in Surat in a Year 4 classroom in 2022. I began teaching the Year 3 to 6 class at St Patrick's School in 2023 and I feel grateful to be a part of a multi-age classroom. Being a multi-age class, the students are inclusive and collaborative. They learn many skills that prove challenging when in a straight year level class. I enjoy listening to the students' passions and challanges and working with other staff members here at St Pat's to ensure every student feels supported, and each need is met.
Mrs Alice Bryant - Years Prep-2 Teacher
St Patrick's offers opportunities for every learner in a supportive and friendly environment. I enjoy matching appropriate strategies to each phase of learning to maximise skill development and understanding, consolidate learning and providing opportunities for learning to be applied to differnent contexts.

“St Patrick’s has a unique culture, both within the staff and student body. It embraces people’s individual qualities and celebrates successes of different levels. The St Patrick’s community is like having an extended family.”
Miss Sonya Martin - School Support Officer/Community Liaison Officer
