Our Patron

​​The Star of the Sea - is one of the most ancient titles of Our Lady, going back to​​​ St Jerome and the earliest centuries. 

The stars were used, and still are, as a guide to safety. Sailors called a com​pass ‘star of the sea’ because it was shaped like a star.

The sea covers all​ the earth and symbolizes all the people of the earth​. Our Lady was therefore identified from the very earliest days of the church as the guiding light to her son Jesus.

Therefore it is​​ fitting that Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School, which is situated within the oldest parish in Queensland and on the edge of Moreton Bay, should be so named.

Our schoo​​l will acknowledge the Friday closest to the Feast of the Assumption each year as the Feast of Our Lady, Star of the Sea.
