The Pastoral Care and Wellbeing Program at St Patrick’s College Townsville aims to create a sense of hope, joy and optimism within the students encouraging them to grow in confidence and self-determination. This is achieved through a focus on ensuring all students develop a sense of belonging to the College Community. Extracurricular activities are an excellent way for students to engage and provide opportunities to build relationships with staff, peers and students across all year levels. Pastoral days provide students with an opportunity to make connections and further advance their Catholic spirituality and personal development. The College offers camps and retreat programs; each with a focus that further develops friendships, spirituality and connections with the wider community and the environment.
