St Patrick’s College has a strong tradition of and commitment to boarding.

Since 1893, we have been welcoming boarding students to our community and we look forward to providing this special opportunity to students well into the future.

Throughout our history as a boarding school, many generations of young men from across the nation and more recently from overseas, have been challenged to reach their full potential, academically, culturally, socially and spiritually through the programs of excellence offered to boarding students at St Patrick’s.

In 2018, we opened our new boarding facilities which provide the boarding students with exceptional accommodation arrangements.

Our commitment is to ensure that our boarders experience a sense that the St Patrick’s Boarding House is a home away from home.

As a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition, we seek to bring about a transformation in the hearts and minds of all students in order to build a world that is just, compassionate and Gospel focussed.

We encourage the boys in our care to develop and use their God-given talents and to prepare them for success in their personal and professional lives beyond the College. We aim to educate the whole person – body and heart, mind and soul.

I encourage you to consider the many exciting opportunities and programs made available to our Boarding students.

We are very proud of our vibrant and caring boarding community and look forward to developing a strong relationship with all families to assist each boy to become confident, happy and to make the most of every available opportunity.
