St Patrick's College is committed to the ideal of a learning community based upon the mutual support of its members and faithful to the promise that the Kingdom is here among us.
It is our mission to nurture a dynamic Christian community which seeks to develop the full human potential of each of its members - students, parents, staff, pastors.
The Aims of the program are:
- to meet each student at his/her point of need;
- to nurture an environment where each student's full educational, spiritual, physical and social potential might be realised;
- to provide structures and opportunities which encourage students to realise their potential.
Each student belongs to a Pastoral class - the Pastoral teacher is a person in a significant relationship of care of the student.
One period per cycle is devoted to Pastoral Care where a formal and informal program of Pastoral Care operates. Each Year Team has additional senior staff to assist with the promotion of the Pastoral Care lesson.
The Pastoral (Year) Co-ordinator has the specific role of nurturing the community of the Year group and overseeing the care of students in that year.
Each Year Team meets fortnightly to review and anticipate Pastoral Care issues in the Year group.
Each Year group builds community via retreats, picnics, fundraising for charitable works, concerts, etc.
