Parent Weekly Update 30 November

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Sarah Parkinson as the new Assistant Rector at St Patrick’s College who will replace Mr David Martin who is leaving at the end of the year. Ms Parkinson won this position from a strong field of applicants and will bring a real passion for excellence in Catholic education to this role. Sarah is our current DRS, and she will take up her new role at the beginning of next year.


  • Monday 3 December to Wednesday 5 December: Year 10 Kennedy Camp followed by Year 10 Redwood Camp from Wednesday 5 December till Friday 7 December.

YEAR 10 CAMPS: We were very disappointed to have to cancel the Year 10 Watters and Chanel camps this week due to the poor weather but we had to prioritise the safety of our students. We are organising an “Activity Day” for these students on Monday 10 December. Further details will be sent out early next week.

JUNIOR PRIZE-GIVING: Year 9 and Year 10 parents are warmly invited to attend Junior Prize-giving which will be held in the College hall at 10am on Wednesday 12 December.

REMINDER: “The Battalion” – Auditions for “The Battalion” – a play which will be performed next year by our students and girls from St Mary’s College – will take place on 8-9 December at St Mary’s College Hall, 9am-3pm. All students welcomed.

Sectare Fidem

Kind regards,

Neal Swindells
