St Patrick's is a Catholic School in the Canberra Goulburn Archdiocese. As part of the Archdiocesan system, we are able to offer schooling from Kindergarten to Year 6 at our school and allow students to continue their education at a Catholic College, Years 7 to 12, at Lumen Christi Catholic College if so choosing. Enrolment of students at St Patrick’s is open to children of any faith. In accordance with Archdiocesan policy no child will be denied Catholic schooling because of an inability of parents to pay fees or levies. Applications for enrolment are available from the Secretary’s Office. Phone: 6492 5500.
The Principal, or a member of the Executive team, will interview parents seeking enrolment for their children. At this interview parents must give a firm undertaking that they will accept and support the life, nature and identity of the Catholic School, including the participation of their children in the Religious Education program of the School. Parents will be advised soon after the interview as to the child’s acceptance/non acceptance.
For a Kindergarten enrolment, the child applying for a position in the School must turn 5 on or before April 30th of the year of admission.
Our school fees cover a variety of costs, which cannot be met by any other means. The Student Resource Fee is per student per term. The setting of these fees are kept to a minimum to take the burden off families. Being a Catholic systemic and parish school allows us to keep our fees lower than other non Catholic and private schools. We are supported financially by the Catholic parish of St Patrick's in the Bega Valley as well as the Archdiocese of Canberra and n, who also supports the school through their schools education and school support program.
In Catholic Education System. Together we offer a pathway of Catholic schooling from Kindergarten through to Year 12. We are also linked through our curriculum and together we offer a very high standard of schooling on the Far South Coast. A discount off the CEO School Tuition Fee is offered for families who have children at both St Patrick's and Lumen Christi. This discount has to be applied for when paying school fees each term. A note applying for the discount is in each of the terms newsletters for the first two weeks.
Students from St Patrick’s are given first priority when enrolling at Lumen Christi Catholic College as we are one of the two feeder schools in the district to the college.
