Dear all members of St Patrick’s College,

Now that the College has returned to remote and flexible learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, you will no doubt have many questions about how this will work and our boys’ education at St Patrick’s College will continue in the most effective way possible.

In readiness for this, College staff have invested much time in the past few weeks planning for all possibilities and we are constantly appreciative of your ongoing support and patience as we move forward into this unusual remote learning environment.

We have provided below a chronological list (most recent at the top) of all our correspondence that we have sent to our parent community over the past few weeks.

We know we don’t necessarily have all the answers. We also know that some of the answers we have provided may well change over time, sometimes regularly.

Therefore, we encourage you to regularly revisit this page as it will change over time. New documents will be added and the Frequently Asked Questions document will be amended as circumstances change.

We are in this new environment together with uncertainty. However, as we often say at St Patrick’s College, our job is to work in unison with all our parents, to provide the best outcomes for your son. Our commitment to that remains unchanged and unwavering.

Should you have any questions which are not answered in the documents below, we invite you to email them through to Deputy Principal Mrs Elizabeth Ryan at eryan@stpats.vic.edu.au

The College has also published this list of Mental Health support resources which staff, students and parents alike may find helpful at this time.

Thank you for your co-operation.
