Learning for Life
St Patrick’s offers your child a comprehensive and engaging learning program based on the Australian Curriculum.
Our qualified staff consistently strive to ensure current best practice is delivered through engaging in local school and system-based professional learning.
More information on the Australian Curriculum can be accessed via their website.
All students participate in daily religious education lessons, and are led in—or lead—prayer and whole-school meditation at appropriate times throughout the day. Students also have the opportunity to prepare for the Sacraments of Penance, Eucharist, and Confirmation through a family-centred, parish-based, school-supported program.
Extending from our religious education program, the school enriches and deepens student understandings through the Spirit of Jesus and Make Jesus Real programs. Years 3 and 4 are engaged in the Spirit of Jesus program before continuing into the Make Jesus Real program in Years 5 and 6. Students then put what they learn into action through community outreach such as hospital visits, involvement with the Parish and participation in community events such as ANZAC Day.
As part of their Christian response to the needs of others, students visit Strathdevon Aged Persons Home, the Mersey Hospital, and occasionally visit the local respite centre. The student community also extends its generosity to fundraising for Caritas, the Archdiocese of Hobart’s Samaritan Project, St Vincent de Paul, Children’s Mission, and Red Cross.
