Tēnā koutou katoa, nau mai, haere mai and welcome to St Patrick’s College, Wellington, ko Hato Patariki ki Poneke.

The Society of Mary founded the College in 1885 and for over 130 years St Patrick’s College has a proud tradition in providing quality Catholic, Marist education. We are proud to be Marist and practise our Faith.

Micah 6:8 says, ‘To act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God.’ This scripture passage speaks to me as it embodies how our young men should live their lives. We are a Catholic, Marist College. Our teachings are based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, in the way of Mary, showing our love for God and serving our neighbour. Your son will learn our College values and become familiar with the phrase, ‘keep the faith, do the MAHI.’ 

At St Patrick’s College we value the shared relationship which is an integral part of our pastoral care system that creates a partnership between home and school. We offer a wide variety of opportunities for learning. We endeavour to nurture and grow your son’s potential into becoming a young man who will flourish spiritually, academically, culturally, socially and in the sporting environment as part of his faith formation and journey at St Patrick’s College.

One of the key strengths of our kura is our diversity. We have students from a variety of cultures that come from the greater Wellington region.

It is a privilege to have your son attend St Patrick’s College. If you wish to visit our kura, our College please make contact with us. We would be happy to accommodate you and your whānau. 

Sectare Fidem - ‘Hold firm to the faith’.
