This term, we installed a series of seven columns along the front of our campus on Ellen Street, which tell the story of Blessed Edmund Rice and the women who inspired him.

Thank you to families in Treacy House and Years 5 and 6 for generously donating over 100 warm blankets and toiletries, all of which will provide some practical support for many in our local community doing it tough over the coming months. #BetheOne ...

Over the last two weeks the ERA for Change group here at St Patrick's College has been leading activities to mark Pride Month in our community. One of these actions has been the raising of the Pride Flag each morning before school.

For us as an Edmund Rice community our Charter Touchstone of Inclusive Community calls us to work to support all people and welcome them to St Patrick's College.

We need to ensure that respect for all people is part of all our relationships in this community.

Our actions have been making a statement to our community that St Patrick’s College welcomes diversity and values each and every member of our community.


Our mission as a school is to form Men of Action who will make a positive difference throughout their lives.

We are building right relationships that respect the dignity, diversity and uniqueness of each individual.

A bright welcome arrives at St Joseph’s!
College Principal Mr Paatsch recently took delivery of a new commissioned artwork for St Joseph’s entitled “Welcome”. Painted by artist Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr Baumann from Nauiyu in Daly River, NT. The College maintains a strong connection to Miriam and her community with staff and students visiting Nauiyu as part of our immersion program. On their visits, students learn the importance of Dadirri and deep listening along with the strong community connection to country. The Daly River immersion has not been able to proceed this year, so it was wonderful to see Miriam’s painting arrive. It tells the story of four traditional Welcome to Country ceremonies from Santa Teresa, Tiwi Islands, Port Keats & Nauiyu. We will proudly display Miriam’s work for students, staff and visitors to enjoy.
