Patrician Belief Statement Founded in the traditions of the Patrician Brothers and committed to their ideals, we are school communities that: Welcome all who come to our schools, and seek to build communities of hospitality and inclusion where differences are respected and partnerships are fostered. Expect staffs and students to develop strong learning communities where effort and achievement are affirmed and where all are encouraged and supported in reaching their full potential. Challenge our school communities and their members to reach out to people in special need, to work for justice for those at the margins and to honour God’s presence in the works of creation. Celebrate our Patrician heritage and take inspiration from Christ’s allpresence as expressed in the Breastplate prayer of St Patrick.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.
