Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome

St Paul’s Catholic College, Manly is a systemic Year 7 to 12 school catering for boys on Sydney’s Northern Beaches for over 80 years. Our aim is to provide an excellent academic education in the Catholic tradition, enabling each boy to develop to his full potential. An education at St Paul’s will inform, encourage and excite each boy and promote the Catholic values of acceptance, love, forgiveness, compassion and prayerfulness in every aspect of school life.

The motto of St Paul’s College is “Prima Primum” – First Things First – and is a challenge to all members of the St Paul’s Community to properly arrange life’s priorities. At St Paul’s we aim for excellence in every area and purposefully educate each person’s spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth. We also recognise that parents are the prime educators of their children and we endeavour to support, compliment and involve them in the education of their sons.

The College aims to produce confident young men who are flexible, innovative and well-rounded decision makers and who are consequently well-prepared to meet the challenges of a good tertiary education and a successful career. We have worked hard to create a school, which is at once challenging, yet friendly; demanding, yet supportive; serious in purpose, yet light in spirit. To achieve our aims we provide extensive Information Technology facilities, an excellent Information Resource Centre and dedicated, experienced and professional staff who teach in a disciplined and happy atmosphere.

We are very proud of our school, of its excellence, character, energy and sense of fun, but you must judge whether it is the right place for your son.

Prima Primum
