square anneI warmly welcome you to the St Patrick’s school website. It is my hope that this cyber forum will provide you with a breadth of useful information whilst extending an invitation for you to become part of our wonderful school community.

St Patrick’s is co-educational, Catholic primary school, located in Port Kembla Parish. A systemic Catholic School, St Patrick’s operates under the auspices of the Catholic Education Office – Diocese of Wollongong.

Ours is a school proclaiming a rich historical tradition dating back to 1918. In keeping with the Catholic educational ethos upon which the founding members built the school, St Patrick’s continues to work in partnership with parents. The focus of our combined enterprise is the provision of quality, Catholic education. At all stage levels, staff aim to nurture each child’s faith experience, to recognise and cater for individual needs, to challenge each child to grow, adapt and positively engage in learning. This is a learning community where all are encouraged to build and maintain healthy relationships.

Currently a single-steam primary school, today’s population of 140 students is arranged in classes From Kindergarten to Year 6. Whilst the average class size is 19, demographic shifts indicate that we are entering a period of growth marked by increased demand for enrolment.
