About our school
St Patrick's School is open to all families within the Gordon community and welcomes families from Mt Egerton, Wallace, Springbank, Ballan and throughout the district. St Patrick's Gordon is a Catholic Primary School catering for children from foundation (prep) to year 6. We invite families to join us for a 13 year Catholic education journey starting at St Patrick's Primary School Gordon and continuing on to Loreto College (girls), St Patrick's College (boys) or Damascus college (co-educational) in Ballarat. We welcome Non-Catholic families into our community and currently around 30% of our families are Non-Catholic. Working together, staff, parents and the community of St Patrick's Gordon will ensure your child or children are safe and happy as they are learning at St Patrick's Primary School.
