How to enrol

Selecting St Patrick's, Parramatta, will give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially, and in partnership with our parish and the wider Catholic education community.


It involves a commitment to work with the school and support the philosophy, values and aims of Catholic education.

Specifically, joining this community means parents/carers and students are committed to:

  • the development of quality relationships with all members of the school community
  • the Catholic identity and evangelising mission of the school within the Church
  • supporting the school in upholding school policies and procedures
  • involvement by parents and caregivers, where possible, in the life of the school.
