Welcome to the St Patrick’s College Foundation

 

OUR FOCUS

 

"The St Patrick’s College Foundation encourages and facilitates the generous gifts and donations which flow from individuals, families and businesses connected to the College. The Foundation was established in 2010 to ensure that the vision of the early Marists, to educate young people, especially those most neglected, continues for many generations to come.

St Patrick's College itself, was built in the spirit of generosity, with the support of the Society of Mary Fathers and Brothers numerous Wellingtonians and other New Zealanders. This magnanimity has ensured that a Catholic education steeped in faith, manaakitanga, achievement, hauora and integrity is available for successive generations of young men. It is from all our past generations of Patricians and families that the Foundation seeks support to continue its work of supporting the College to deliver education at St Pat's today and into the future."

Past examples of generosity

Development of the Artificial Turf: In 2013 your generosity ensured that the artificial turf, which has become such an amazing asset to the College, was laid down so our Patricians had somewhere to develop their sporting skills even in inclement Kilbirnie weather or at night.

Liberato Cacace, who was recruited by the Wellington Phoenix during his time as a student at St Pat’s, was able to hone his skills on our artificial turf.

Assisting students and families in need: Each year, your support also allows the Foundation to assist the College to purchase Chromebook devices for a group of students from financially challenged families so that they can participate fully in their educational learning.
