Our staff

Patricks Road State School is fortunate to have dedicated, professional staff who are enthusiastic about assisting each child to reach his or her potential. 

Administrative staff are welcoming and able to assist parents, visitors and students with their enquiries. Teachers are committed to continually updating their skills in order to best facilitate learning. There is a pleasant blend of long-serving staff and some who have arrived more recently. The staff are extremely proud of the school and its students.
