Welcome to St Patrick's
St. Patrick's School, Pyramid Hill stands on the traditional land of the Jaara People who have inhabited this country for many thousands of years. Our school was founded by a group of dedicated parents and the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1956. These Sister were brave and courageous women that followed in the footsteps of Mary MacKillop, Australia's first canonised Saint. Mary MacKillop dreamed of providing education to isolated and small communities that in many instances did not have the financial ability to provide education for their children. St. Patrick's School followed in this tradition in 1956.
