The Lord is My Light

Ų is a Catholic Secondary School for Girls in the Good Samaritan Tradition, which operates under the trusteeship of Good Samaritan Education. The charism of the College draws deeply on our patron, St Patrick as well as the teachings of St Benedict.

The College’s rich history dates back to when Bishop Polding, a Benedictine monk, blessed the original foundation stone of the first St Patrick’s site on 17 March in 1840. This makes the College the oldest Catholic independent school in Australia built and funded by local enterprise without government assistance.

Staff Directory


Hear from our families...

Our two daughters attended this school and we found the school to be a wonderful, nurturing environment for our daughter. Both have become wonderful, confident young women who show respect and consideration to all their peers. Both girls have been given every opportunity to excel in everything they do. The school is very supportive of every girls individual needs and the staff are very approachable. Well done St Pats!”
