Junior School

The Junior School at SPC is the perfect “launchpad” for the St Patrick’s experience and allows for the traditions and ethos of College and Blessed Edmund Rice to flourish in our boys. We truly value the 5 to 12 nature of our College, with the Junior School providing as seamless a transition to high school as possible.

In Years 5 and 6 we aim to nurture a sense of belonging in the boys where relationships are built that will sustain them throughout their whole College life. We aim to forge strong ties to the school, the teachers and the peer group that will help create the fine men of tomorrow, men of whom St Patrick’s can continue to be proud.

Our Junior School of approximately 360 boys, draws from many feeder schools across the metropolitan area and caters for students of all abilities. There are six classes in both Years 5 and 6 where support for both extension and those with learning difficulties is catered for through the Junior School staff and our Diverse Learning Centre. Students are based in a set classroom with their own teacher, but utilising specialist teachers and facilities throughout the whole campus for Visual Arts, Music, Personal Development/Health/Physical Education, Languages and Library. Languages taught include Italian and French.
