Mt St Patrick is a co-educational Secondary College operating within the system administered by the Catholic Education Office. It caters to grades 7-12. It was opened in 1826 by the Presentation Sisters and was administered and staffed by them until 1989. It derives its name from St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, whose feast day is celebrated by both the College and local communities.
Students are divided into four houses. Each house in named after a person or place significant to the college and its establishment. The houses are; Lucan (Green), Nagle (Gold), Loreto (Blue) and Lisieux (Red). The houses compete for the St Patrick's Champion House Trophy which is presented to the winning house on St Patrick's Day every year. The winning house is determined by the acculated points each house receives through sporting and academic achievements of each of its students.
