St Paul's Catholic Primary School is committed to the promotion and lived experience of Christ's Gospel Values. We are committed to providing not only a safe and caring environment, but one which fosters respect and justice for others.

At St Paul's, we endeavour to teach our students the importance of following the principles and values of their Catholic tradition. The following principles are drawn from the Catholic Education Office of Wollongong's Pastoral Care Policy 'Path to Life':

Respect for human dignity

Justice and equity

Compassion

Excellence

Integrity

Service

Trust

Loyalty

Courage

Subsidiarity

In 2006, the school introduced an additional recognition of positive behaviour. The Mary MacKillop medallion was initiated for students who achieved more than five Principal’s awards during their time at St Paul’s Camden. The three different Mary Mackillop medals that the students strive to achieve included bronze, silver and gold. In 2018, St Paul’s introduced a new system of awards to highlight students achievements in the various fields of these Gospel Values, The Truth Love Faith awards. Further details are found in the Truth Love Faith Award policy located on this website.

Catholic schools in the Diocese of Wollongong are committed to a safe and supportive environment. The principles, guidelines and procedures set out in the Policy documents Maintaining Right Relationships and Safe.
