Camperdown – St Patrick’s Primary School
Deeds Not Words Only' is the motto of St Patrick's School. We are a Catholic Primary School with an enrollment of nearly 300 based in the south-west Victorian town of Camperdown.
At St Patrick's we believe that even though words are a powerful force for change, it is our deeds that reflect our commitment and desire to transfer our beliefs into action. St Patrick's was established in 1886 and has been 'providing a quality education based on respect and caring, drawing on the gospel values to enrich St Patrick's students for life', for the last 125 years.
Our school draws students from a wide area and feeds into Mercy Regional College, the Catholic secondary school based on the same site. At St Patrick's we provide modern, inviting facilities and with the recent inclusion of a new library and improved technology facilities it has allowed us to continue to offer a complete education where children are given the opportunity to grow, academically, spiritually, morally, socially and emotionally. We do this by offering a diverse, interesting and comprehensive curriculum while fostering a passion to learn and to think independently and critically.
