News from the Principal
Congratulations to everyone for a fantastic sports day at Bacchus Marsh on Monday. We were very proud of the children, their efforts and their behaviour. It was also great to see so many parents and grandparents coming and supporting the children on the day.
Congratulations to those children who were recognized on the day as Champion Boy or Girl for their age groups. Out of fourteen possible championship awards, seven were awarded to students from St Patrick's. What an achievement!

EASTER LITURGY, EASTER RAFFLE & EASTER BONNET PARADE

What a wonderful gathering of Parents and Friends there were on Sunday at Donegan's Farm.
I thank the Parents and Friends for organising a great social day for families. Although the weather wasn't fantastic, people rugged up and enjoyed food, drink, music and great company.
Josie Donegan even had the opportunity to catch up with some of the alumni students from St Patrick's, that she had taught many years ago.
It was the first time I have been to Donegan's Farm and I was very impressed with all that it has to offer the Gordon community and beyond.
