Principal's Welcome

​​Welcome to St Vincent's Primary School.

St Vincent's Primary School, Clear Island Waters is one of Brisbane Catholic Education's primary schools and a part of the Surfers Paradise Catholic Parish. We are a co-educational primary school (Prep – Year 6) with a current enrolment of over 800 students. 

Our team is committed to developing an inclusive and culturally responsive environment where everyone is supported, accepted, and empowered to thrive and flourish. 

We achieve this through: 

  • Building trusting relationships, 
  • High expectations of success by focusing on individual strengths, 
  • Best practice, whole school programs, ​
  • Collective teacher efficacy, 
  • Students, staff, and community agency, 
  • Responsive, engaging, and inclusive learning environments.

Our core values of Enriching Life, Excellence in Education, Future Leaders and Catholic Spirit Alive underpin everything we do. A place where every child matters, each moment counts and everyone belongs. 

Our leadership team and educators implement a whole school approach to delivering the Australian Curriculum and the Brisbane Catholic Education Religious Education Curriculum using research and evidence-based strategies, with a sharp focus on developing the whole child. This consistent, yet differentiated approach, fosters continuous growth and achievement for every student, in every classroom, every day - from Prep through to Year Six. Our specialist program includes Physical Education, Music, Italian and STEM. 

St Vincent's Primary School prides itself on the spirit and relationships that can be found in our community. The opportunities that we offer our students are unique, vibrant and engaging.

The St Vincent's Primary School website provides a wealth of information about St Vincent's - the quality education we provide our students and the welcoming community culture we continue to cultivate.
