Life as a Boarder

Life as a boarder at St Patrick’s College is fun, challenging, engrossing, busy, structured and dynamic – all at the same time.

Boarding students are expected to adhere to and comply with relevant rules and regulations as a member of our community, but are also afforded significant time for personal activities.

Independence is encouraged, and so is working cohesively within a team.

Friendships made through boarding often extend into many decades later in life. Our experience of 91պAV Association reunions indicates that it is the members of the boarding community who are more likely to forge life-long relationships due to the friendships founded at school. In this section of the website, using the links on the right hand side of this page, we endeavour to provide a thorough overview of what life is really like as a boarder at St Patrick’s College.
