Our College

St Patrick's College is situated on the picturesque shores of Moreton Bay. The St Patrick's experience, through our innovative and engaging education programs, fosters learning in a culture enriched by pastoral care and camaraderie, where young men are encouraged to be 'men of action', striving for excellence together.

About St Patrick's College

St Patrick's has a proud history of educating young men in the Edmund Rice tradition. At St Patrick's we believe that the provision of the Catholic faith for our school community is at the core of everything we do. The Founder of the Christian Brothers, Blessed Edmund Rice, was known for his concern for the poor and marginalised. The College's enrolment policy is reflective of the Founder's original vision.

St Patrick's College is committed to achieving academic excellence to meet the educational needs of future Australian leaders, reformers, innovators and workers. The College also has a strong focus on social justice, a sense of community and actively nurturing the spiritual development of young men. To complement our Religious Education Curriculum, St Patrick's College offers a comprehensive sequential retreat and service solidarity program for our College community. St Patrick's is renowned as having one of the leading Service Programs in schools across Australia. The challenge to our students is for them to put their “Faith into Action".

The College's House system provides continuity in Pastoral Care over Years 5 to 12 and is the primary structure in helping students to develop a sense of belonging to the College and fostering College and community spirit. The young men of St Patrick's are strongly encouraged to be active members of their community. The College offers an extensive co-curricular program covering the cultural and sporting dimensions.
