It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of Christ the King Catholic Primary SchoolBass Hill. Our small Catholic school is embedded within the vibrant, dynamic parish of Bass Hill. Our students and families share a wonderful sense of community, and it is our privilege to work in partnership with families to develop the faith of our children, and to assist them in achieving their full potential.
Christ the King Catholic Primary School offers a rich and varied curriculum characterised by 21st century pedagogy. The school has a positive nurturing learning environment that strives for excellence in all facets of education and fosters the self-confidence, self-worth and integrity of each child. Our school is highly regarded by the local community.
I feel privileged to be in the role of principal at this stage in the history of Christ the King Catholic School Bass Hill.
I invite you to visit us and see our wonderful school for yourself.
Christ the King Bass Hill is a long established Catholic Community. On 29 January 1957, Josephite Sister Patricia O’Brien and postulant Sister Assunta arrived at Bass Hill to establish a school. Together with the parish priests, the early community strived to create a welcoming, warm environment for the students of the parish.
Our early educators were strong Catholics who demonstrated values of persistence and integrity and they have provided us with a deep community spirit which we celebrate today. At Christ the King we continue to learn about and celebrate our Josephite tradition inspired by the charism of St Mary of The Cross Mackillop, where in the words of Saint Mary of the Cross, ‘We must teach more by example than by word.’ (1867)
Our school and the parish at Christ the King, Bass Hill have a strong partnership. Our parish priest, Father Dinesh Macwan works closely with the school. Together, our faith filled community strives to work as one in planning and celebrating the Liturgy, Sacraments, parish/school fete and Christmas carols. Our community has a deep devotion to Christ the King and Saint Mary of the Cross Mackillop.
