Principal's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to St Patrick’s College Townsville, an independent Catholic girls’ secondary college, established by the Sisters of Mercy on the values of their founder, Catherine McAuley. As a Mercy community, we strive to live out the values of compassion, respect, integrity, justice, hope and joy in all that we do.

The College enjoys a strong reputation as the school of choice for young women of the North, with an expert teaching team, 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.

We offer an intimate environment with a stunning waterfront location, where our girls are supported 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.

Our state of the art facilities, overlooking the ocean and set amongst lush tropical gardens, allow our young women to explore the many academic, cultural and sporting opportunities available to them.

Generations of extraordinary women have been educated at St Patrick's College Townsville both as day students and as boarders since the late 1800s. They are justly proud of their alma mater and remain strongly connected to the College through various networking events and activities, offering unique opportunities to inspire and mentor our current students.

To experience our unique and beautiful learning community, please feel free to contact us at any time to arrange a personalised tour of our campus and facilities, or come along to our twilight open evening held each year in March.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our College community.

Acknowledgement of Country: We give thanks and respectfully acknowledge the Wulgurukaba people, the Traditional Custodians of this beautiful country whose land our College shares. We recognise their ongoing deep spiritual connection to this Country, and the care they gave for thousands of years. We also acknowledge the Bindal people as the neighbouring Custodians of their Country. We pay our respects to the Elders, past, present and emerging and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples here today.
