Learning at St Patrick's MARIST COLLEGE
St Patrick's Marist is a place where curiosity, imagination and love of learning thrive through working together to provide the most effective, engaging and challenging learning experiences for students.
As one of the 80 Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta, we’re working together to transform learning for students in Greater Western Sydney. This means reimagining and refreshing learning and teaching for today’s world and today’s learners.
The purpose and promise of a Catholic education is to inspire each learner - student, teacher and family - to discover a meaningful and flourishing life.
OUR FAITH JOURNEY
St Patrick's Marist College is a great place for students to grow in faith and learning. We value each student as an individual and share the values of the Gospel to help them discover the hope that is within and to experience a meaningful and flourishing life.
Beyond the classroom
We believe it is important for students to pursue interests to find what they are passionate about. Our College gives them exposure to a range of exciting opportunities to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or follow a passion.
Sport is a valued part of our curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child by providing a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning. Participation, enjoyment and skill development are the cornerstones of College sport. Representative pathways are also available through the Parramatta Diocesan Secondary Schools Sports Council.
OUR HIGH SUPPORT LEARNING CENTRE (WIYANGA)
Students with additional needs and their families are very welcome in our schools. An inclusive approach supports the individual needs of each student. It’s all about building confidence, independence and belonging!
We are particularly proud of our purpose-built High Support Learning Centre which provides inclusive education for students with a moderate intellectual disability, low adaptive functioning and high support needs.
STUDENT DEVICES (BYOD)
Students in Years 7-12 are required to bring in their own Apple or Windows laptop for use at school. Having consistent access to their learning technology enables students to build the digital literacy skills required in our ever-changing landscape.
PARENTS AS PARTNERS
Strong partnerships between home, parish and school support students to grow in faith and learning. We recognise parents and carers as each student’s most influential, primary and essential educators.
