Our school was originally established by the Presentation Sisters in 1902 to serve the catholic families of the Central Highlands area of which Emerald is the geographical hub. The Sisters ended their ties with the school in 1992 due to the decline in their numbers and a shift in their mode of service to people and especially children.
St Patrick’s School exists for the education of children from Prep age (Five) to Year Six and is a co-educational facility serving the township and surrounding districts of Emerald.
At our school, we aim to develop within our students the ideals of academic excellence and personal growth which are centered around the deepening of our Christian faith. We strive to have these aims as the centre point of any relationships and curriculum which occur within our community.
Latest News and Events
Thank you to the Year 6 students who were members of Mini Vinnies. The students have worked together with the St Patrick's School community to raise funds and awareness of people who need help and support. In the spirit of St Vincent De Paul, the Mini Vinnies members have shown by example and through their commitment and served the poor with love, respect, justice, hope and joy.
Throughout the year, our senior students have been offering their assistance to Café 126 at Avalon Aged Care Facility. Each of the classes have alternated their support for the café by assisting with food preparation and taking the time to share their company with the residents of Avalon. All of the students who have visited Avalon this year have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the residents have been very grateful for the kindness that they have been shown. 2014 ended with a final visit to celebrate the Christmas season with afternoon tea, singing Christmas carols and sharing gifts and cards.
