Catholic Education South Australia

From the Principal


Welcome to St Francis of Assisi Catholic School at Newton...

We trust that our website will give you some valuable insight into what we, as a Catholic School Community, aim to achieve in the education of your child.

Catholic schools exists to provide education in a Catholic Culture where the meaning and message of Jesus Christ is available to students and young people.

We have a focus here on St Francis of Assisi and St Clare. They give us some great ideas about how we can form a relationship with Christ and then inspire us to do something with that relationship! 

This message permeates all dimensions of school life. Catholic schools educate for today’s world and are involved in the offer of faith and community in the Catholic Church. Schools are called to be faithful to students and families by providing the best possible education and by offering this in the best possible context of faith and life. 

If you find you have any questions relating to our school, enrolment or being a part of the St Francis community, please don't hesitate to contact our friendly staff through the School Office.  They'll be pleased to speak with you.
