I thank the P & F for their work in the challenging year.  Your wonderful efforts continue to ensure our children experience a wide range of educational opportunities above the everyday classroom experiences.


I sincerely thank the 2020 Committee for their support and dedication to the P & F.

NECOM Concert  - Sunday 28th February for Music at St Pat's.

Classical musicians are banding together to raise money for music education at St Patrick’s School. All the musicians are teachers with the New England Conservatorium of Music (NECOM). 

Giving children the opportunity to learn music is something NECOM music educator Nicole Mackson is passionate about. Nicole is currently involved with the music program at St Patrick’s School and she is very keen to see the resources in the school continue to grow.  Currently each class has five music classes a term. While children in Years 3 -5 have a Band program, the school is keen to start a Choir program too. All funds raised on the 28th will go to the school.
