St Patrick's College is a Catholic Girls' Secondary Day and Boarding School located in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia.HistorySt Patrick's College was founded in 1878 by a group of Irish nuns from the Sisters of Mercy order. Their foundress Catherine McAuley, began the Sisters of Mercy in 1831. The Sisters were pioneers of education in North Queensland, and the college stands as a monument to their contributions. With onset of World War II in the Pacific, St Patrick's vacated the College buildings located on The Strand for use by the allied war effort, namely the W.R.A.A.F units. The Wartime College and boarding students were moved to different locations, West End and Ravenswood respectively.During the 1960s and 1970's the college adapted to educational requirements of exam criteria developed by governmental Educational Departments. Later government grants brought new infrastructure providing a library, new science laboratories, social science and language facilities and later computer technology. Current students can participate in the numerous extra curricular activities common to most modern high schools, including national sporting competitions and UN youth summit.
