An Education Designed for Girls

St Patrick's College Townsville Named a Finalist in Australian Education Awards

We are thrilled to have been named as a finalist in the Australian Education Awards for the second year in a row for Regional School of the Year. In addition to this, our College has been recognised for its award-winning Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program being named once again as a finalist for Best STEM Program.

According to Amber Hauff, College Principal, being named as a Regional School of the Year finalist is a “wonderful recognition of the hard work and dedication of all members of this community. The College continues to enjoy a strong reputation as a school of choice for young women of the North, with an expert teaching team, a rigorous academic program, an outstanding pastoral care system and an innovative, inclusive and positive learning culture designed especially for girls, encouraging them to be creative, collaborative and reflective.”

Being recognised as a College that provides one of the best STEM programs in Australia, reiterates the incredible work of our teachers and the professional partnerships in place, ensuring our College continues to push the barriers, encouraging more young women to develop a passion in these fields, pursuing STEM related careers. As the only all-girls independent Catholic day and boarding school in North Queensland, we recognise the strategic importance of developing our future problem solvers and innovators.

“We support our students to have the courage of their convictions to do more and be more than they ever thought possible; and in doing so, leave our College as confident, hopeful, purposeful young women, leaders and agents of change who demonstrate ambition and compassion.” Mrs Hauff said.

The Australian national winners will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held at Doltone House, Darling Island in Sydney on 6 November 2020.
