Established in 1840, St Patrick’s College is the oldest Catholic independent school in Australia. Operating under the trusteeship of Good Samaritan Education, values of justice, prayerful discernment, hospitality, peace, community and stewardship are an integral part of the faith and life of the College. As a Catholic school, the College celebrates the Church calendar and is committed to social justice and community service. St Patrick’s College is the only all girls’ high school in the Macarthur region of Sydney. The College promotes a safe learning environment that is rigorous yet supportive so that students can achieve in all courses including those that can traditionally tend to have a gender bias in the co-educational setting. As a comprehensive, single sex school we are committed to the holistic education of students through an academic care model which aims to foster lifelong learning. The College implements learning programs that build on areas of need in Literacy and Numeracy. The growth in our NAPLAN results indicates that these programs have been effective in addressing this need. The College provides an extensive choice of subjects for the RoSA and Higher School Certificate credentials. Academic, creative and vocational educational programs are offered to provide a broad range of learning experiences for students. The recent completion of our Trade Training Centre enables girls to achieve Certificate III in Hospitality. In addition to this, St Patrick’s offers diverse co-curricular and sporting opportunities amid excellent facilities in beautiful landscaped surroundings. The College is well equipped with current technology and is innovative in its teaching practices. The Benedictine precept ‘to organise all things so that the strong have something to strive for and the weak nothing to run from’ (Rule of Benedict 64:19) underpins all we do.
