Welcome to St Patrick's CBC

A very warm welcome to the St Patrick’s CBC website.  In the modern world this platform serves as a vital communication link to the entire school community as well as those who are being introduced to St Patrick’s CBC for the first time. 

Our school is rich in history and the traditions associated with Catholic Education.

The Christian ethos and philosophy, that has filtered through the years, has embraced the technological changes coupled with education in the 21st century, and thereby, shaped a school that provides a South African educational experience, of the highest quality.
