The primary schools of the twinned Parishes of St Gabriel’s, Bexley and St Mary MacKillop’s, Rockdale City were established because of a desire to educate our children in a faith setting.
At St Gabriel’s Catholic Primary School Bexley our parish priest, principal, parents, pupils and parishioners work closely together in a faith filled community. The religious life of our school is evident in all programs, supporting our students to grow in faith and love of God.
Opportunities to celebrate and share our faith include Feast Day Masses, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparent’s Day, Family Masses and Class Masses, Reconciliation liturgies, prayer assemblies and receiving the Sacraments.
As a community, we strive to live out our motto “Proclaim the Word of God”, by developing our prayer life, reflecting on scripture, coming together to pray our school prayer, reciting the angelus, singing our school song and actively taking part in social justice and outreach activities.
