The St Patrick’s College boarding community makes every effort to communicate regularly and effectively with the entire College community.
In 2015, the boarding community regularly contributes to the College fortnightly newsletter, the Crest, and also manages several social media accounts which aim to provide constant feedback on life in the boarding community.
These channels are an effective tool for families to keep aware of coming events and to be informed of noteworthy achievements of those in the boarding community. We encourage everyone to follow the SPC Boarding Twitter account which can be found at @spcballarat.
We also encourage everyone to connect with the St Patrick’s College boarding community on Facebook by joining the group which can be found at this link .

Where are they now - Jason Gigliotti (SPC 1984-89)
