St Francis Catholic School Hughenden

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the St Francis Catholic School, Hughenden website. I hope it will give you a glimpse into the unique and dynamic education that we offer and the community that makes us who we are.


St Francis Catholic School is a small school that caters for students in Prep to Year 6 and has a proud history of providing high-quality education in an environment of the Catholic tradition. We have a friendly atmosphere where every child is cared for by our dedicated staff. Our school is committed to meeting the challenges of education today and in the future in order to provide our students with the skills necessary to progress further along the life-long journey of education and learning.


Teachers at St Francis Catholic School embrace the very latest in technology and best practice to educate your child according to a multi-age philosophy, while also considering each child’s abilities and needs. Our school prides itself on a high standard of education, providing up to date and relevant resources for use in each classroom. Our staff work together to create happy and safe classroom and playground areas, which we believe, are essential for a successful learning environment. Our supportive, welcoming atmosphere ensures great partnerships and relationships are created with our parents and the Hughenden community.


At St Francis, we believe a balanced education is important. Consequently, our students enjoy a wide range of learning, sporting, musical and social justice opportunities.  We endeavour to help our students develop their skills, resilience and talents, along with a strong sense of compassion and justice, so that they will make a positive difference in our community.  Our students enjoy a very strong sense of belonging which is strengthened by the consistent support and encouragement that exists within the St Francis community.   


I look forward to welcoming you and your family to be a part of St Francis Catholic School.

Kindest regards,

Brenton Place
