Statement of Democratic Principles


St. Patrick’s Vision and Mission as a Catholic school clearly outline our commitment to the education of the whole child so that they may become active contributors to society; locally, nationally and/or globally.


St. Patrick’s is committed to the principles and practice of democracy in Australia, including a commitment to:

  • An elected Government
  • The rule of law
  • Equal rights of all before the law
  • Freedom of religion
  • Freedom of speech and association
  • Values of openness and tolerance
