We express our heartfelt gratitude.jpg

Let's celebrate the empowerment of young women to become independent and resilient lifelong learners.

This annual event is to help raise funds for the St Patrick’s College for Girls Scholarship Fund.

This fund covers tuition for local families and their daughters encountering difficult circumstances. The Scholarship Fund enables them to access a Catholic Good Samaritan education in our secure and supportive College that would otherwise not be possible.

St Patrick’s College acknowledges its responsibility to help the vulnerable and we seek to make a real difference not only by providing a secure and supportive education but also by giving access to a life-changing scholarship fund.

Your support will enable a community of young ladies to thrive, to become strong and confident in spite of the hardship they may face.

We ask you to please help us support these vulnerable young girls and let them shine.

Our 2022 Emerald Gala Ball successfully raised $72,585.

We can report that with the generous contributions from our supporters to the Scholarship Fund, we were able to provide 25 girls with a St Patrick’s College education. Of the 25 girls, 11 received a full tuition scholarship and 14 received a partial tuition scholarship.

These scholarships strengthen our college community and with your contribution we can continue a worthy scholarship program.

A program that teaches the Benedictine values of justice and peace, community and humility.

*All scholarships supported by the St Patrick’s College Scholarship Fund are means-tested.
