St Patrick’s College is embarking upon a major project to ensure the long-term future of boarding in first-class, custom-built facilities for generations to come.

We will bring all our boarders together in one designated precinct in the north-west corner of the College where they will have access to brand new, ultra-modern, spacious, comfortable and, most importantly in Ballarat, warm facilities. They will live as one community, not as three or four separate houses. They will learn, dine, study, play, relax and grow together. They will have wonderful new amenities, both indoor and outside and will form their own vibrant community once again.

We will welcome boys from across Australia in numbers that haven’t been seen here for two decades. The new precinct will enable us to nearly triple our current boarding student population.

We are indeed fortunate to have an outstanding Appeal Team to lead the fundraising campaign, including Patron Christian Ryan (OAM and Olympic Medallist, SPC 1993-95), SPC Foundation Chair Dennis Foley (SPC 1967-72) and SPOCA President Michael Kearney (SPC 1962-67). 
The Appeal Team have been working hard in the background and have already raised more than $327,000 in a great start to our project. 
We ask you to consider assisting the College in this investment to secure boarding at St Patrick’s College for decades to come.
