St James Primary has a proud tradition of excellence.  Excellence in Catholic Education, faith, academia, the arts and sporting avenues.  

Students at St James are known and loved and our focus is on every child - every day.

St James Primary is in Banora Point, Northern New South Wales.  Our school nurtures students from Kindergarten to Year 6 and is an integral part of the St Joseph’s Catholic Parish community in Tweed Heads, as such we are a prominent partner in the evangelising mission of the Church.

St James Primary School strives to be a Christian family centred around Jesus Christ and his teachings.  The Catholic Identity and tradition of the school, therefore, is characterised by Christian attitudes, values, and practices in a welcoming and caring educational environment.  Each student’s personal growth and the pursuit of learning within the Catholic context is nurtured, promoted, and celebrated in partnership with parents, pastors, parish, and the wider community so that all can have life in all its fullness.
