St. Patrick's High School is located in the heart of Quebec City, just outside of the "old" city walls.
Located in the heart of Quebec City, St. Patrick’s High School is an English high school rich with Irish Catholic history. The school had its humble beginnings in 1843. Today, the school is no longer denominational but still maintains a strong sense of Irish pride. Over the years, generation after generation have attended St. Pat’s which allows many important traditions to live on creating a strong sense of belonging. Many staff members are also alumni who help carry on our Fighting Irish traditions. Students who attend St. Patrick’s High School are offered a rigorous academic program. All our students have an opportunity to graduate with both English and French mother tongues. This is unique in Quebec. We offer a full program of math and science for students who wish to pursue the sciences at the CEGEP and University level. At the senior level, St. Pat’s also offers a variety of Social Science courses for students who are interested in pursuing that field later. In order to reach out to as many students as possible, many different profiles are available to our students whether they are academic, sports related, or arts related. Football, basketball, hockey, multi-sports, Spanish, science-tech, music, music – vocal, art, drama, student leadership and woodworking are offered to students so they can discover their true passion. A long standing tradition which is anticipated by many students is our annual public speaking competition. Students from secondary one to five will research a topic of their choice and develop their speech writing skills. This culminates in the best speeches competing in front of the student body. These skills better prepare our students for public speaking opportunities that will arise in their futures. St. Patrick’s High School is also recognized for its rich extra-curricular programs. Students have the opportunity to join various teams such as; football, basketball, rugby, ultimate frisbee, track and field, and outdoor education. We also participate in community events such as the Spartan Race and Winter Pentathlon. The Student Council at St. Patrick’s High School is very active and dynamic in planning and running activities which promote a sense of belonging and pride to students. Starting with a bang in September, a school wide activity called “Colour Clash” is highly anticipated every year. Students are divided into 12 multi-level colour teams and get to know each other while competing in entertaining games. Theme days, pep-rallies, movie nights are just a few of many activities held at St. Pat’s. Not to forget the many other activities organized by dedicated staff members such as the jazz band, various plays, the yearly talent show, improv nights and “St. Pat’s Cares” which promotes community involvement.

Dear parents, The end of the school year is just around the corner and high school is coming to an end for our Class of 2015. In the next few weeks, a number of significant events are organized as part of a succession of “lasts”, culminating with the Graduation Ceremony, taking place this upcoming June 19th at Le Palais Montcalm. In an effort to make this as memorable a time as possible for our students, we are working very hard at each and every piece of this last puzzle. For this reason, we are putting together an information session regarding the Graduation Ceremony and the several other events/activities related to it. In light of new information concerning a potential conflict of schedule on Tuesday May 26th, we have decided to change the Secondary V meeting date to Thursday, May 28th 2015, at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused and we hope to see you then. Best regards, The Class of 2015 Grad Coaches

Ecuador Update 2! Hola amigo's and amiga's We are more than halfway through our days here at the Minga lodge, and things couldn't be going better! The group started out in their community of Mondana on Friday by being introduced to the project that they will be working on. They are building a Chosa which is a space the women's groups will be able to meet to sell their products and perform their traditional dances. On Saturday morning we spent some time at a family farm getting to know the Vargas family and helping them to perform some of their daily chores such as harvesting corn, carrying water, picking coffee beans, and laying gravel. That afternoon we went back to Mondana and the group continued to make quite a bit of progress on the Chosa. They have also been practicing their Spanish with some of the community members and getting pretty good! On Saturday night the group really came together for the evening activity, where they all opened up, shared their stories, and ultimately became a lot closer! On Sunday morning we went for a hike through the rainforest with our Jungle Guide, Freddy. We walked through primary rain forest, saw an osprey (joining us all the way from Canada) and took some incredible group photos. All in all, the trip thus far has been incredible, the group has truly begun to see the value of their hard work, and are filling their journals with stories of hope from the community. We are excited to get the most out of our last few days, and continue the on -going, and sometimes LOUD, giggle fests. The group sends their love, Hasta Luego, Katie and Emily (EF tours)
