Cultural Program

"Imagination is the spark that ignites creativity. Creativity is the fire that motivates, innovates and liberates our students to grow as they discover their abilities, passions and purpose."

Mr Geoff Samuels - Head of Culture

St Patrick’s College offers students an exciting and diverse range of cultural programs and activities designed to complement and balance the curriculum. These programs encourage participation, teamwork, self-confidence and creativity. Students across all year levels are actively encouraged to extend and explore their interests, skills and knowledge through participation in a broad range of cultural activities.

The cultural program provides students with opportunities for character development, decision-making, collaboration, problem-solving and leadership. These experiences enrich the lives of students and develop valuable global skills which empower them as they move into life beyond the college.


At St Patrick's College, our programs are designed to be;

ACCESSIBLE: Participation is offered to students regardless of their levels of experience or expertise.

ENJOYMENT BASED: Each activity is designed to allow students to identify areas of interest and passion. They provide an inclusive and non-judgemental space where young men are free to try new things.

DEVELOPMENTAL: Students are provided with support and guidance by experienced tutors and coaches to assist them to develop their potential.

CELEBRATED: A broad range of opportunities are provided to allow students to showcase their work in performances, presentations and competitions.
