Inspired by the practical example of Catherine McAuley, we strive to bring God’s loving kindness in Christ to all whom we meet, and to all that we do.

COMPASSION: Those with compassion enter into another’s experience and are moved to respond. In the spirit of Catherine McAuley, they engage with the poor, the vulnerable and the disadvantaged of our world.

RESPECT: Those with respect honour the integrity and diversity of creation. They recognise the unique dignity of every human being as created in the image and likeness of God. Empowered by the Spirit they are called to be co-creators of the new creation.

INTEGRITY: Those with integrity are honest and trustworthy. They attend to their own journey into self-knowledge and right living, and they ensure that processes are just and decisions are made in light of the common good.

JUSTICE: Justice is concerned with right relationships. Those who live justly promote right relationships with God, self, neighbour and creation. They work to ensure the welfare of all especially those in need.

HOPE: Those with hope live the resurrection story trusting the transforming power of God, so they persevere through difficulties, act with integrity and serve with joy. They respond to challenges with optimism, searching for the will power and strength from God to live out the Gospel values in their daily lives.

JOY: Those with joy are filled with the spirit, engaging in laughter and happiness in their interactions. They take great delight in spreading God’s love, and strive to live life to the full.
St Patrick’s College is a beacon of hope fostering ambition and compassion to create a better world.
St Patrick’s College Townsville is a Catholic independent educational community in the Mercy tradition. Our Mission is to promote fullness of life and nurture excellence in learning for all young women in a joyful environment.

Educating girls matters...


Educating girls matters and that is why we have designed an education that is especially for girls.

St Patrick’s is an independent Catholic girls secondary college, established by the Sisters of Mercy 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 ensures our girls are well cared for in all dimensions – academically, spiritually, emotionally and socially.

Choosing a secondary school for your daughter is one of the most important decisions you will make. You are most welcome to contact us at any time to arrange a personalised tour of our campus and facilities, or to come along to our regular open days and events.   We look forward to welcoming you and your family.

Blessings
