The Essentials


St Patrick's College forms a distinctive community characterised by the quality of its personal relationships. The College community strives to develop relationships based on respect, hospitality, care and justice and has a strong focus on developing partnerships between staff, students and families. The College acknowledges the primary role of families in the growth and development of the child and provides opportunity for their participation in the life of the school. The College also fosters enduring, lifelong relationships with former students and their families. There are many Support Groups within the College and all groups welcome active involvement and support.
