Congratulation and well done to the HSC class of 2019!
We wish the students well in the career paths they have chosen and challenge each one of our current students to model their commitment to study on that of the 2019 Year 12 students. The very strong academic results of 2019 support the teaching and learning goals of the College as we continue the journey of strengthening our academic culture. I would like to thank all teachers at St Patrick’s for their hard work and dedication to ensure our students have every opportunity to perform to the best of their ability
On Wednesday evening, 14 August, our Year 11 Model United Nations Assembly participants attended the Sutherland Rotary club. A spokesperson from the Club indicated they were highly impressed with Emma Mason, Ben Moss and Sam Noakes. Congratulations to these students who represent our College so wonderfully.
On Thursday evening, 15 August, Alana Forrester (right) spoke at the Sutherland Shire Public Speaking Grand Final at the Council Chambers. Alana placed 3rd!! Congratulations on an outstandingly prepared speech about genetic modification and an impromptu speech, ‘is it worth it?’
Due to renovations at the venue, 2019 St Patrick's College Swimming Carnival will be an age base carnival and Year 7, 8 and 12's are expected to attend. They do not have to nominate for a swimming event. However, If your child/ren are in Year 9, 10, 11 they are expected to attend school. For those who would like to participate in an event, they must nominate their swimming intentions by logging through to their Student Portal.
On Tuesday 24 July, 27 Year 10 students and two teachers attended the Science and Engineering Challenge at the University of Wollongong. The day consisted of hands on experiments where the students designed products such as bridges, catapults, string highways, electrical circuits, turbines, a model hand and communication systems and had to test them to gain points towards a certain scenario or challenge. The day was the definition of STEM in action. With each scenario and challenge the student’s products were put to the test and marked to specific guidelines in order to gain points as they were competing against four other schools. The following students attended: Maddison Brymer, Norreigne Catbagan, Kye Childs, Sebastian Cincotta, William Corcoran, Daniel Costandi, Patrick Crehan, Danny Dang, Anna Dau, Daniella Janji, Juliette Jones, Sophia Khouri, Isabelle Lathlean, Mitchell Lee, Jonathan Leong, Julia Mamo, Nicole Marzolla, Emma Mason, Ronan Mauro, Christopher Meyer, Benjamin Moss, Billy Norris, Zara O’Mahony, Amy Parkinson and Jonathan Varga. Most of our products scored in the top two for our categories. A special mention to the bridge builders, the bionic hand team and the electric city teams as they scored the highest points on the day. We won first prize for our challenge day. This challenge is run across the State at various venues and total points go towards a Super Challenge Day. I have just received news we did not make the Super Challenge final but have been shortlisted in case another school is unable to attend. Congratulations to this group of students for getting so close to making the Super Challenge final. Well done for this outstanding achievement. Your ability to communicate as a team, be creative with your problem-solving skills and to critically think to adapt your designs to each challenge or scenario was admirable. The St Patrick’s community is proud of your efforts.
