Welcome from the Director of Boarding
"What a task it is to form a man. How difficult is it. How much patience is required. But is there anything greater?" Fr Jean-Claude Colin, Founder of the Society of Mary
When a family decides to send their son boarding they join an exclusive community within St Patrick's College. With guidance and clear boundaries from the boarding school staff we foster an inclusive and safe environment. With support and tuition we encourage boys to reach their academic potential and strive for excellence.
Redwood House is more than a physical space. Lifelong friendships are born, a solid work ethic is nurtured, team work is fostered and leadership is promoted.
We want boarders of Redwood House to leave prepared for the challenges of the real world and to look back at their experience at school with fondness.
The role of parents and families remain central to a student’s development and we actively encourage families to visit and participate in the sporting, cultural and spiritual activities of our boarding students integral to the special character of St Patrick's College Silverstream.
Boarding in Redwood House allows flexibilty for families. Boys can stay in throughout the school week, for the entire week, or short term casual boarding (for current college day students). A variety of Boarding Scholarships are also available.
