"We chose St Raphael’s for our son because it had such a lovely community feel to it. All the students and staff know everyone’s name, and make the new students and their families feel very welcome. St Raph’s ‘punches above its weight’ in relation to the quality of care and education."

These are for the purpose of staff preparation to ensure learning continuity in the event of further COVID impacts in Term 2.
"Families appreciate the connected community of St Raph’s. This means that parents are on school grounds before and after school having a chat, getting together for a coffee after drop off and asking each other for assistance via the parent Facebook group. We’ve made many new friends through St Raphael’s School. Our boys love coming to school at St Raphael’s every day. They know that they will be challenged by their learning, enjoy their friendships and be cared for by the staff. Our main aim is for our boys to want to come to school, and St Raphael’s certainly succeeds in that!"
