These are available with the prospectus, from the Rector’s Secretary, or from the College website: www.stpats.school.nz. When completed these should be returned to the Tumuaki/Rector. Preference Certificates need to be signed by the parish priest or lay pastoral worker (where applicable). There is not normally any problem with acceptance of preference students into the College.
Parents of prospective students who are not Catholics should send the completed enrolment form to the College with a letter explaining why they wish their son to attend St Patrick’s College. The Integration Act restricts the number of non-Catholic students who can enter the College, and the number of applications always exceeds the non-preference places available.
Prospective Year 9 students will be advised of their acceptance following processing of their application for enrolment. Late in Term 3 information about course selection and option subjects will be distributed, and students will be asked to make a firm decision as to which subjects they wish to take.
On either Tuesday 8 November or Thursday 10 November 2022, new Year 9 students for 2023 will be provided with an opportunity for you and your son to meet with a senior staff member to discuss any matters of interest or concern.
Overseas students are welcome to apply for enrolment. All information regarding overseas students is available under the International tab on our website.
St Patrick’s College has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students published by the Minister of Education. Copies of the Code are available on request from this institution or from the New Zealand Ministry of Education website at http://www.minedu.govt.nz
