Its vicinity becomes the host of the annual Maltese Festival around September.

History[edit]

St Paul's Catholic College was founded in 1958, commonly referred to as the new Catholic School in the district of Pendle Hill. It was originally named St Simon Stock School.

The school took its as motto Esto Vir, which means "Be a Man".

Over the years, the school took on a new name and motto. The 19th-Century English convert and thinker John Henry Newman was the inspiration for the new name and the new motto was "Heart speaks to Heart".

Finally the school was renamed again to St Paul's. The new motto for St Paul's is "Many Gifts...One Community".
