Strategic Plan 2019-2021

St Patrick’s College is a Catholic day and boarding school for boys in the Edmund Rice Tradition.

Edmund Rice founded the Christian Brothers, a religious order of men, in Waterford Ireland in 1802 to educate boys as a response to a social inequity of the times. The College celebrates this heritage, which originated in its foundation by the Christian Brothers in 1893. The College is now governed by Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA).

As an EREA school within the Ballarat region, St Patrick’s College serves our families and the broader community by reaching out to others and developing strong relationships.  In doing so, we connect with others to build an experience of belonging as we contribute to the unfolding of a great story where our words and actions are based in the Gospel values where Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of a full Christian life.

Our community in its diversity, provides a broad range of quality opportunities for all and actively encourages each person to strive for  personal excellence. Our hope for the future is in the young men we serve, whose experiences and connection to the College is formed by, and honours, the rich traditions which have helped to shape the identify and culture of St Patrick’s College.
