Preparation

Central to the mission of St Patrick’s College, Senior students are an integral part of our school community of faith, learning, respect and service in the Catholic tradition. In order to prepare Senior students for the final journey of their secondary school experience, all aspects of the Senior School are designed to meet the needs of students. They are encouraged to be independent thinkers, make informed decisions, and take responsibility for their own actions as learners. Senior students work in partnership with a dedicated team of Senior School staff to realise their full potential in order to pursue future pathways. The Learning & Achievement programs are based on the Australian Curriculum content, pedagogy and assessment framework however some students also study one Level 2 TASC subject. In Year 11 and 12, students study syllabi from the Office of Tasmanian Assessments, Standards and Certification (TASC). There are many pathways students may follow from studying a range of courses that best meet their needs.
