Welcome to St Paul’s Catholic Primary school. Our school is located approximately 20km north of Hobart in the outer suburbs, and caters for families in the Brighton area and beyond. The core values and mission of the school are based on the Gospel Values and include a strong emphasis on promoting the value of each child in the school as well as a very recognisable culture of caring and pastorally supporting all students and families. The school provides an educational foundation for each individual to reach his or her full development as a person, intellectually, spiritually, physically, morally and emotionally.

St Paul’s was first opened in 1984. The school’s original founding orders are the Sisters of Mercy and Christian Brothers.

The school caters for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 and has a current student enrolment of around 200. These students enjoy large grounds where we encourage and enable play to build positive relationships. Our school has an excellent bike track, construction area, gardens, a ‘creek bed’ and spaces for building cubby houses, digging in our large sand pit and an oval for team sports.
