Patrician Brothers College Blacktown is a community where students are given the opportunity to explore their passions, foster new relationships and grow into the leaders of tomorrow.
On the College’s 70th anniversary, each member of our community is given the opportunity to build off the foundations within the rich Patrician tradition. Since the establishment of the College in 1952, the Patrician Brothers have created a community in the heart of Blacktown where students can strive to be their best academically, socially and spiritually.
There is no denying that the previous two years have been plagued with doubt, with students forced to overcome unimaginable adversity and the unknowingness of the future. Yet, in times of struggle, we naturally turn to those we trust and the College community provided all students with familiarity in a world where there was seemingly none. A period of online learning highlighted the dedication of all staff and students alike with their ability to persevere through whatever challenges that arose. However, most importantly, the times of online learning displayed the incredible College spirit that is embedded into every student. Respect, tolerance, service, faith - all values encapsulated on campus yet not restricted to the uniforms students wear, but rather a part of each individual’s identity.
Our motto, ‘Christus Regnat’ is a reflection of every member in the community where Christ reigns in their hearts. At Patrician Brothers’ College Blacktown, students are encouraged to develop their faith building a greater relationship with God allowing them to make faith-led decisions for the rest of their lives. Decisions built on the foundations of Jesus allow each young man within our community to become a positive and active member of society in the years following Patrician Brothers’ College.
Over the past 70 years, the Patrician Brothers’ College Blacktown community has continued to grow to expand upon the year before. With world-class infrastructure and technology, students are granted the best possible opportunity to strive toward whatever goal they may have. A mass of extra-curricular activities ranging from chess clubs to debating to a weekly sporting competition where students get to represent their College against others. Each and every activity is an opportunity to showcase the incredible culture of the College, a culture unique to only Patrician Brothers’ College Blacktown. A culture of learning, striving, inspiring and most of all a family.
It is an honour to represent and lead the student body of Patrician Brothers’ College, Blacktown in 2022 and I look forward to seeing the incredible feats that we can all accomplish together. I look forward to sharing our culture with everyone in the community and welcoming everyone into the College with open arms.
