School’s Religious Character

PAX et bonum – Peace and all goodness

St Francis Catholic Primary School, Tannum Sands is a young, energetic Catholic community where learning and relationships are based on the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ and inspired by the life of St Francis of Assisi.   St Francis followed all that Jesus said and did, joyfully and unconditionally.  From his caring of the poor to his adoration of nature and his fervent times of prayer, all of Francis’ actions were an act of worship.  His life, both contemplative and active, inspires our school community to live a life of service and gratitude.

Our Catholic faith offers a unique approach to the development of a relationship with Jesus Christ through its rich heritage of theology, sacramentality, spirituality and morality.  Our Franciscan charism adds another faith dimension through which our students are encouraged to develop a relationship with God.
