An Independent Catholic Girls Secondary college - Day and Boarding

Where Ambition Meets Compassion


Our Vision, Mission & Values

An education in the Mercy tradition invites us to take up a challenge - one that encourages us to develop fully own own God-given talents. At the same time, it enkindles within us a desire to assist others, so that they too, 'may have life, and have it to the full'. John 10:10
Our Vision

St Patrick’s College is a beacon of hope fostering ambition and compassion to create a better world.

Our Mission

St Patrick’s College Townsville is a Catholic independent educational community in the Mercy tradition. Our Mission is to promote fullness of life and nurture excellence in learning for all young women in a joyful environment.

Our Values

Inspired by the practical example of Catherine McAuley, we strive to bring God’s loving kindness in Christ to all whom we meet, and to all that we do.

COMPASSION:  Those with compassion enter into another’s experience and are moved to respond. In the spirit of Catherine McAuley, they engage with the poor, the vulnerable and the disadvantaged of our world.

RESPECT:  Those with respect honour the integrity and diversity of creation. They recognise the unique dignity of every human being as created in the image and likeness of God. Empowered by the Spirit they are called to be co-creators of the new creation.

INTEGRITY:  Those with integrity are honest and trustworthy. They attend to their own journey into self-knowledge and right living, and they ensure that processes are just and decisions are made in light of the common good.

JUSTICE:  Justice is concerned with right relationships. Those who live justly promote right relationships with God, self, neighbour and creation. They work to ensure the welfare of all especially those in need.

HOPE: Those with hope live the resurrection story trusting the transforming power of God, so they persevere through difficulties, act with integrity and serve with joy. They respond to challenges with optimism, searching for the will power and strength from God to live out the Gospel values in their daily lives.

JOY:  Those with joy are filled with the spirit, engaging in laughter and happiness in their interactions. They take great delight in spreading God’s love, and strive to live life to the full.
