Our Story

St Patrick’s is the oldest parish school in Australia.

The parish school was established by Fr Therry in Hunter Street in 1820.  In 1837 the school was relocated next to St Patrick’s Church.  In 1874 the girls and smaller boys were separated and taught in a school opposite the church.

From 1874-1888 the Sisters of Mercy, Head House Monte Saint Angelo, North Sydney, were teaching at St Patrick’s School Parramatta, in a building which was standing in front of the present O.L.M.C. in Victoria Road, then known as Pennant Street.

The Sisters of Mercy from Callan, Ireland, then took up residence in Parramatta on 8th December 1888 at the invitation of Cardinal Moran.  They re-opened the school on Monday 10th December, just two days later with an enrolment of 55 pupils.

In 1926 that building was demolished and a new building was erected at the corner of Villiers Street and Ross Street, the current site.

The senior girls moved to Westmead in 1966 to form Catherine McAuley High School.  The primary school remains to this present day.

The Sisters of Mercy handed the responsibility for the School to the first lay Principal Ms Joan Coyle in 1985.

A place of Heritage, Innovative Learning and Vision.
