Throughout this year we have introduced many initiatives at St Patrick’s with the major focus being on student wellbeing;
- The Resilience Project has begun it’s journey with an introduction by Martin Heppell in August. Coupled with this has been the ‘Boys to Men’ project.
- Targeting Mathematics has been on ongoing focus throughout 2017 and onto 2018 and 2019
- Music has also been a major focus . This culminated in the A3 concert and the introduction of the Instrumental Program.
- Coding and Programming has been introduced into the IT program and will be ongoing in 2018.
These significant projects will continue into 2018. We will continue to strive for excellence in all areas of the curriculum with our students being at the centre of all our endeavours.
