Our School


St Patrick’s Catholic School, Asquith was established in 1958 by the Sisters of Mercy who withdrew from the parish at the end of 1987. The Mercy tradition of nurturing and educating was carried on by various lay Principals, the current incumbent being Mr Todd Vane-Tempest. The school has long held a strong reputation in the local community for good teaching and as a caring Catholic community.

St Patrick’s Catholic School has a rich sense of tradition and mission in terms of

  • Educational Excellence in Teaching and Learning
  • Faith Development
  • Service to the Community

Our school is proud to be named after St Patrick of Ireland. St Patrick was an exceptional  mediator, a person of great wisdom, inspiration, patience and above all, a person of great Faith: Our Catholic School’s motto
