Grow in Wisdom and Love


Thank you for visiting the St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School web site, which we hope will provide you with some practical information on our school community and the day to day operations.

St Francis of Assisi School first opened its doors on January 28, 1997 with 114 students in 5 classes, Transition, Years 1/2, Years 2/3, Years 4/5 and Years 6/7.  It was established by the Catholic Education Council of the NT and the Parish of St Francis of Assisi, Humpty Doo to serve the rapidly growing population of the Darwin rural area. The school currently has 111 students in 6 classes from Transition to Year 6.

There is also a warm and welcoming Early Learning Centre on site which caters for children from 2 to 5 with modern facilities in a lovely bush setting within a safe environment.

We hope that you find the information that you need from this site and we encourage you to make contact with members of St Francis of Assisi’s School community to learn more about St Francis and Catholic education in the rural area.
