Welcome to Silverstream

"Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it."
Proverbs 22:6


Silverstream is a Catholic, Marist boys’ secondary school of 720 students (maximum roll) where boarding is an integral part of the community.  We are committed to empowering young men to become compassionate, just and successful citizens.

You don’t just attend Silverstream, you belong, and all our students are welcome, included, respected, celebrated and supported. It is important for young men to know what they believe in and what they stand for, so we spend time on the big issues and the spiritual. Each young man is encouraged to be his very best, with an understanding that excellence is individual. Students learn to self-manage, to take responsibility for themselves and to chart their future course.

Enjoy learning about our school. If you would like to know more, please get in touch with us.

"Our task is to form men – Christian in heart, mind and conduct. Men who recognise the importance and dignity of the human person, understand the duties of justice and good will to all. Men who will challenge materialism and selfishness. The young man at Silverstream is trained in a manly pattern of living, a life lived in and through God’s Grace."

Principal's Welcome

St Patricks’ College Silverstream is a Marist Catholic school for boys with a roll of 720 students, where the boarding school is an integral part of the community and the heart of the college. The college was founded by our Marist Fathers in 1931. The mission of a Marist School is to form the whole person in the image of Christ through instruction grounded in religious values, the teachings of the Catholic Church, and the spirit of the Society of Mary. This mission is advanced through communal pursuit of excellence in academic, religious, extracurricular, leadership and service programs, thus creating Fr Colin’s vision of “a Community of Education.”

It is always Marist to accept the young person as a gift from God and to spend time alongside them, encouraging and mentoring them as they grow in wisdom and confidence. Marist schools look for ways of allowing the God-given talents of young people to be expressed, to grow and to become strong. Amid a caring and nurturing atmosphere, we strive to ensure that every young man reaches his full potential.

In this way, we prepare our students to be the best they can be when they leave St Patricks’ College Silverstream, instilling in them a keen sense of justice, a desire for a more caring and compassionate society, independence of mind and respect for the dignity of all.
