All Saints Parish Primary School at Albany Creek Review
Situated north of Brisbane in the Moreton Bay Regional Council, All Saints Parish Primary School at Albany Creek offers a welcoming and supportive school community focused on the holistic development of its students.
All Saints School is a Catholic primary school, which caters for children from Prep to Year 6 and is a bustling community of more than 700 students from Albany Creek, Eatons Hill, Bridgeman Downs and surrounding areas.
All Saints Parish School has come a long way since it opened in 1989 with just a preschool class and years 1, 2 and 3. It was 1993 before the school catered for the full complement of classes and 2007 when two Prep classes were added to the school community. All Saints Parish prides itself on holding four Sunday Masses each weekend for its growing community, a far cry from the one mass held when the Parish was established in 1986.
