St Patricks’ College Silverstream is a Marist Catholic school for boys with a roll of 720 students, where the boarding school is an integral part of the community and the heart of the college. The college was founded by our Marist Fathers in 1931. The mission of a Marist School is to form the whole person in the image of Christ through instruction grounded in religious values, the teachings of the Catholic Church, and the spirit of the Society of Mary. This mission is advanced through communal pursuit of excellence in academic, religious, extracurricular, leadership and service programs, thus creating Fr Colin’s vision of “a Community of Education.”
It is always Marist to accept the young person as a gift from God and to spend time alongside them, encouraging and mentoring them as they grow in wisdom and confidence. Marist schools look for ways of allowing the God-given talents of young people to be expressed, to grow and to become strong. Amid a caring and nurturing atmosphere, we strive to ensure that every young man reaches his full potential.
In this way, we prepare our students to be the best they can be when they leave St Patricks’ College Silverstream, instilling in them a keen sense of justice, a desire for a more caring and compassionate society, independence of mind and respect for the dignity of all.
As a Catholic College, faith is a core part of our everyday life, and students are encouraged to live their faith and develop a lifelong relationship with God through sacraments, prayer and service to the community.
We have a vibrant and engaging curriculum with a focus on Local Curriculum. Our key theme for 2022 is “Who are we” - Our people, Our Faith, Our Environment. Our big question is how did our community come to be here?
We have a long and proud history when it comes to sports. Our vision is to build and promote a positive sporting experience for all our students that also challenges them to be the best athlete, coach and supporter they can be.
