‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) 

St Patrick’s College operates as a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) school. Using an extensive range of cloud-based educational platforms, including Microsoft Office 365 and the Canvas Learning Management System, enables our teachers and students to collaborate and learn in an online environment without being limited to designated operating systems or programs.

Please download the most current College BYOD Guide to assist in the purchase of a device for your son, or to ensure that his current device meets the necessary operating requirements.

Books and Stationery 

Textbooks and exercise books for Year 5 will be issued to your son during the first week of school next year. Costs of these books will be included in your first term fee account. Parents will NOT need to purchase additional exercise books. And there is no need to bring an exercise book on the first day of school.
