Beyond the Classroom
Extracurricular opportunities for students to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or pursue a passion.
We help every student shine!
At Patrician Brothers' College, we believe it is important for students to pursue interests to find what they are passionate about. We give them exposure to a range of exciting opportunities to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or follow a passion.
Creative and Performing Arts
We encourage our students to explore their passions and talents. We have a range of opportunities available for students to participate in creative and performing arts activities and programs.
Opportunities include learning a musical instrument, being part of an orchestra, rock band or choir. Instruments can be hired at minimal rates and affordable tuition is available. Students may also choose to master the technical aspects of performance by training as a light/sound technician or create props for theatrical events.
Sport is a valued part of our school’s curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child by providing a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning. Participation, enjoyment and skill development are the cornerstones of school sport. Our College also offers a range of Sports Development Programs and Academic Sports Pathways. Representative pathways are available through the Parramatta Diocesan Secondary Schools Sports Council.
Our students are offered a wide variety of local community activities to help develop a sense of pride, respect and responsibility for themselves and others. Our College supports the work of the Delany Foundation and Caritas and takes part in the St Vincent de Paul winter and Christmas appeals.
Excursions, Camps and Retreats
Every student loves to get out of the classroom and explore.
Our students benefit greatly from school trips where they are able to observe new things not available at school such as rare and exotic wildlife and plants, different cultures and the stories of our history. These experiences lead to deeper understanding of learning subjects.
Camps and retreats are also wonderful opportunities for students to develop independence, grow in faith, form strong friendships and make life-long memories!
