A St Patrick's education allows students to discover their own talents and provides opportunities to fully explore these.
We encourage our students to learn more than just the fundamentals, engaging them in a wide array of co-curricular activities. A growing number of opportunities are available to students.
The St Patrick's recorder group is made up of alto, tenor and bass recorders.
Children from Year 4 audition to be part of this group which meets once a week to learn a variety of songs in 3 and 4 part harmony. Children stay in the recorder group until they leave at the end of Year 6, and during their time with the group they play each size of instrument.
The choir is open to any student in Years 3 to 6 who like to sing. No audition is required. The choir meets once a week to learn to sing in unison and harmony with one another.
This also includes a senior girls choir which is made up of a small group of Year 6 girls who must audition to join. Many of the songs learnt are in a higher voice range and the girls must be able to reach the notes. The choir has had opportunities to perform for senior citizen groups, at Grandparent's Day, at Westfield Parramatta and on various other school occasions.
Years 3-6 children learn and perform many different styles of dance.
This culminates in the Dance Fever Extravaganza where our children compete against others schools using the different dance styles learnt. A show dance finale is also performed in the competition with other schools.
On top of the sporting components included within the PDHPE Curriculum, a number of representative opportunities are available to students, encompassing a wide variety of sports.
