At Mt St Patrick College we endeavour to make education an exciting adventure and believe that every person is a “work in progress”. Education is an ongoing journey which is much more than the Higher School Certificate. A quality Catholic education is about learning specific content and also about learning to live life in a particular way. We nurture strong religious and personal values in our students so that they may serve the common good. Our College motto in hoc signo spes mea (in this sign is my hope) inspires our community to live life to the full.
At Mt St Patrick College we accept our unique responsibility to lay the foundations upon which dreams become a reality.
