St Liborius' Primary opens Josephite Learning Centre

Bishop Shane Mackinlay blessed the new facilities, marking the completion of the third stage of the total refurbishment on buildings dating back to 1904 and 1913. The areas have been innovatively designed to cater for modern learning approaches while retaining the charism of St Liborius’ Primary School.

Mr Frank Dullard, Principal of St Liborius’ Primary School said the senior learning facilities will be named in honour of the Sisters of St Joseph who were associated with the school for almost 60 years.

“We have named our building the ‘Josephite Learning Centre,’ to link this building, our students and the learning that takes place in it to the special charism of our school and its foundation,” he said.

“The spirit and inspiration of the Josephite Sisters and community are a fundamental elements of who and what St Liborius’ stands for today and will continue to be. The naming of the new building as the Josephite Learning Centre will be another way we ensure that the legacy of the Josephite Sisters continues to underpin who we are.”

Reimagining the space within the existing structures has enabled a dynamic learning environment to emerge which meets and exceeds the needs of the community. The new facilities incorporate adaptable learning spaces which cater for the learning needs of every child.

he $1.9 million project, which was a Commonwealth Government and School community project, will serve the families of St Liborius’ School well into the future.
