We regret to inform our parents, past students and supporters that St. Patrick's College will not be hosting a marquee at the 2015 Deagon Community Race Day.

St. Patrick's College is always eager to support the local community but increased costs this year, including Brisbane Racing costs, have resulted in the day being too expensive for many of our families. For us to offer a marquee as we have done in previous years, we would need to charge significantly more per ticket than previous years. As an inclusive school community, we believe these costs to be prohibitive to many of our families in these tough financial times. Consequently, after much consideration we believe that we have taken the responsible decision to not participate in this way in 2015.

However, we encourage you to continue your support of the local community and the Race Day by purchasing a general admission ticket when they go on sale.

We hope that if costs are reduced in the future, we can revisit our commitment to this wonderful community event.

Mrs Stacey Bishop - Foundation Development Manager
