St. Pius is part of a witnessing Catholic community that includes the school community of staff, children and parents, the Parish and the wider community. Catholic values are enunciated and practised to create an atmosphere of love that provides children with a safe and secure environment of total acceptance where they can develop their spirituality, individuality and potential.
As a school we are accountable to this community and to the CEO in Bathurst who manage our school as part of a system of schools in the Bathurst Diocese. St. Pius X has a reputation as a “happy school”. This fact has been commented upon by parents, visiting professionals and other visitors to our school including casual staff. We are very proud of this and work tirelessly to promote a sound and caring pastoral care program for our students and parents and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere of hospitality to all. “Active happiness” should be the most distinctive characteristic of a Christian, Saint Paul teaches.
