Students are encouraged to become involved in the many opportunities offered within the College. There are numerous sporting teams, music programs, debating, arts initiatives to name but a few which the boys are encouraged to become involved in to maximise their time experience at St Patrick’s College.
BOARDERS' INVOLVEMENT IN COMPETITIVE SPORT OUTSIDE ST PATRICK'S
Boarders may be involved in the North Ballarat Rebels program, external football teams and basketball teams which play on Friday evenings and on Saturdays. It is possible for individuals to obtain permission from the Director to play in any competitive sport, provided that the parents' request is given in writing, well in advance. All external sports will be coordinated by the house master. Any serious and/or continuous disruption to study or to the harmonious running of the boarding community will necessitate the cancellation of such permission.
