St Patrick’s is an independent Catholic girls secondary college, offering Years 7-12 for both day and boarding. The College is located on Townsville’s Strand beachfront, within the central business district, offering spectacular ocean views. The college was established by the Sisters of Mercy in the late 1800s on the values of their founder, Catherine McAuley. As a Mercy college, we live out these values of compassion, respect, integrity, justice, hope and joy. We provide an affirming environment where girls are encouraged to do more and be more than they thought possible and in doing so, leave the College as confident young women and leaders who demonstrate ambition and compassion.
At St Patrick’s College we offer 21st century teaching and learning in a beautiful environment. Our recently revitalised campus provides a striking mix of heritage and contemporary learning spaces, in addition to our ocean-front location. Our campus is fully Wi-Fi connected and teachers and students use both indoor and outdoor areas for learning. We believe that students can learn anywhere in an environment where they feel comfortable and that is exactly what we are providing – spaces that are unique, contemporary and appealing to young learners.
St Patrick’s College offers an intimate school environment with a close-kit and committed teaching staff who are experts in their areas of speciality. Our pastoral care team ensure our girls are well cared for in all dimensions – academically, spiritually, emotionally and socially.
