St Patrick’s College is a partnership between students, staff and parents providing an environment of learning, personal growth and faith development while recognizing students as young adults. At St Patrick’s the wider curriculum seeks to develop students mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. St Patrick’s College offers a comprehensive curriculum for students undertaking post compulsory education. In preparing students to take their part in the wider society, students are encouraged to see education as a life long process with schooling as a beginning not an end in itself. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop as independent learners. As students are encouraged to develop to their maximum potential, they are encouraged to strive for excellence in all that they undertake. The college community values academic, general and vocational education and students are encouraged to select courses that relate to their individual needs.
