St Vincent's Catholic Primary School Ashfield HistoryHistory
Our school was founded in 1881 by the Sisters of Charity as was known as St Charles’ Primary School. In 1894, the school continued to be administered by the Sisters of Charity but became St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School when the parish was placed in the care of the Vincentian Fathers. This occurred after the original school buildings were destroyed by fire and a new school building was erected. This building now serves as the school and parish hall.

Embracing our history and the charisms of the Sisters of Charity and Vincentian Brothers, here at St Vincent’s, we aspire to actively live out our values of:

  • empathy
  • service
  • inclusivity
  • stewardship.
