We are the only all-girls College in the Macarthur area.
Welcome to St Patrick’s College for Girls website. St Patrick’s College is a Catholic Secondary School for Girls in the Good Samaritan Tradition, which operates under the trusteeship of Good Samaritan Education. As you read the pages on this website you will learn much of our College’s history and charism, its current endeavours and offerings as well as the planning and direction for the future.
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.
As a Christ-centred community, formed in the Good Samaritan tradition, St Patrick’s College empowers young women through holistic education to be independent and resilient lifelong learners who are actively engaged in working for a just society.
The student body at St Patrick's College is divided into four Houses. The House system develops school spirit, a sense of identity and encourages interaction between girls of different ages.
“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!”
