Welcome to Patterson River Secondary College

 

Our School

The College has an established reputation for providing quality education.  This reputation is based on the achievements of students who of course are our best advertisement; both in obtaining sound academic results and their involvement in many co-curricula activities.

The College motto of “Striving for Excellence” creates an emphasis on developing an achievement culture where success is encouraged and rewarded.   
Students are constantly challenged to achieve their utmost in every sphere of college life.

The College focus is on providing a culture that is characterised by:

  • A challenging and comprehensive curriculum and co-curriculum catering to all students
  • An emphasis on a safe and secure environment where there are high expectations of student behaviour
  • The building of community connections so that students become positive role models and valuable future citizens

The teaching staff are continually reviewing their practice to ensure that their classes are engaging and reflect the individual learning needs of current students.  This is supported by a focus on collection of data to understand the academic level of students and accordingly inform practice.

The curriculum is adapted to cater for all levels of ability and learning styles allowing all students to reach their full potential and to excel.

Our facilities include well maintained buildings and grounds with: dedicated year 7 and year 9 learning centres, extensive MAC and PC laboratories, a dynamic library resource centre, innovative technology wings and a state of the art three court basketball/netball stadium.

I would like to invite you to see our college in operation by booking a tour and look forward to welcoming you as part of our vibrant school community.
