About the School

St Francis Catholic School is a co-educational Catholic school located in the rural township of Hughenden. St Francis is a small and close-knit community with 41 students from Prep to Year 6.

Established in October 1900 with the arrival of the Good Samaritan Sisters, St Francis School is today administered by a lay principal and staff. The school’s culture is underpinned by the heritage of the Franciscan Friars and St Francis of Assisi who said, "Where there is love and wisdom there is neither fear nor ignorance."

St Francis Catholic School strives to always model St Francis and Jesus by creating a sense of belonging for everyone, a community of self-disciplined people, a place of pardon and peace and a community of service within the larger social community. The school’s badge features the Southern Cross, representing the school’s western Catholic identity, and the motto, "Walk in Light".
