Thanks for the term!

Term 3 is always an incredibly busy one for all at St Patrick’s and the success of the many events, functions and activities that have taken place can only occur through the combined efforts of the many.

My time as Acting Co-Headmaster has been made all the more enjoyable thanks to the knowledge and commitment of our staff who bring so much energy to the College every day. As I have noted on a number of occasions to the staff, we are always better when we work together!

I wish you all a safe and happy holiday break and look forward to welcoming you back in Term 4.
