Welcome to our school website. We wish to acknowledge that our school is built on Awabakal land, and we pay our respects to the people of this land both past and present.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St Pius X Primary School, Windale. Our school is a Kindergarten to Year Six systemic school of the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle. We are situated in the Lake Macquarie region, in between the tranquil shores of Lake Macquarie and the beautiful beaches of Redhead and Dudley.

St Pius X is a Christian school in the Catholic tradition with a rich heritage and strong sense of community. The school was founded in 1955 on the traditions and strong foundations of the Sisters of St. Joseph and St Mary Of The Cross’ call for people that they “never see a need without doing something about it.”

Through a dynamic partnership between students, parents, staff, parish members and the wider community, we challenge and support one another towards growth and full potential. Our teachers work in collaboration to ensure high-quality programs are taught and to ensure differentiation across the curriculum to suit all learners. We are inclusive of all and provide quality support for students with additional needs in safe and supportive classrooms.

The school gives new meaning to “child centred” and recognises the uniqueness of each child and strives to fulfil the specific needs of every child. To assist this process, we have engaged a Paediatrician who visits the school each term to work with staff and families to ensure this process. Our aim is to provide a sound educational framework that will equip pupils with the skills to make a worthwhile contribution to society and ultimately achieve personal development. The school is proud of all students for their performance and participation in school, system and state-based initiatives.

The school is indebted to the many parents and volunteers who give so freely of their time and efforts to support the staff and students in all ongoing initiatives. I would like to acknowledge the staff for their ongoing commitments to the students and their families. It is this collaborative partnership that ensures that St Pius X continues to grow as a learning community.

St Pius X Windale is a school where children are loved and nurtured.

Warm regards,

Steve Pryde
