Welcome to St Aloysius College Primary
The Primary School is located in Balzan and was previously Stella Maris School, which used to be run by the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary. Students are admitted to the Primary School in Kindergarten 2 or Prep 1 through the ballot system, and go on directly to secondary education after Prep 6.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
St Aloysius College Primary School is a Catholic educational institution, which embraces the spiritual and pedagogical tradition of the Society of Jesus, and provides personal care for all students.
As educators, we guide and support learners to successfully develop their full potential. The skills-based curriculum promotes the physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual development of all students.
Together with parents and guardians, we aim to foster Ignatian values in our students as they grow into active participants within their community.
