Where Ambition Meets Compassion


Sony Foundation Children's Holiday Camp

A partnership between St Patrick’s College, Ignatius Park College and Townsville Community Learning Centre will see Townsville host the first Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp for children with special needs in September 2016.

As the charitable arm of the Sony Group of Companies, the Sony Foundation has been staging camps throughout Australia since 1999. In 2015 the Foundation funded 28 camps for more than 600 children with special needs.

The program provides senior students with the unique opportunity to care for a child with special needs over a three-day period, in what is a life-changing experience for all.

At least 16 children with special needs will participate in the three day live-in camp based at the St Patrick’s College boarding school on the first weekend of the September school holidays.

Year 11 students from St Patrick’s and Ignatius Park Colleges will be involved in caring for and running a range of activities for the children both on and outside of college grounds. The students will be supported by a team of teaching and medical staff.
