Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School
Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School which is one of the family of Catholic primary schools in the Diocese of Leeds, serving within our parish the communities of St Patricks Church in Huddersfield and Holy Family Church in Slaithwaite. Central to our mission is the message of Jesus which lies at the heart of all that we try to achieve.
If you would like to know more about us, a visit to the school will help you appreciate the caring atmosphere we provide for our children enabling them to flourish and grow to become independent learners. Many Blessings!
The RHS and the European Space Agency have teamed up to create an exciting scientific experiment and we are proud to be part of it! Year 2, with the help of some older school council members, planted 200 seeds of the salad leaf, rocket on 20th April. 100 of those seeds have spent 6 months on the International Space Station with British Astronaut Tim Peake, and our job is to help them all grow fairly, and to send our findings back to the scientists. Our young space biologists are helping to discover whether food could one day be grown in space!
Update: 25.04.16. Our seedlings have sprouted!
Everyone in school is excited by the installation of the Roktagon - our new custom-built, 3D cimbing structure. Huge thanks to Friends of the School and the Big Lottery Fund for their support with this project!
