As a Catholic Educational Community in the Presentation tradition, we are called to affirm Christ as the model for human life. We endeavour to encourage excellence, a love of learning and a passion for life.
Embrace Life is our vision for Mt St Patrick College. It is inspired by the life and teachings of Christ encapsulated in John 10:10.
I have come so that you may have life, and have it to the full
This vision encourages us as a Christian community to see life as a gift to be enjoyed, celebrated and shared, through the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom.
At Mt St Patrick College, all relationships and decision making will give witness to the following Gospel values:
Acting in a manner which recognises difference and encourages tolerance.
Acting in a manner that develops a positive, dedicated and consistent approach so that each person achieves his/her full potential.
Acting in a manner which nurtures quality relationships, where all College members feel respected, valued and have a sense of belonging.
Acting in a manner which recognises the needs, feelings and concerns of others and responds with empathy towards them.
Acting in a manner that promotes growth and seeks to restore relationships damaged by poor decision making.
Acting in a manner which balances the needs of the individual and the community in a fair and equitable way.
