It’s all about partnerships

mark160I would like to firstly take the time to wish Mr Rob Thomas all the best for the next four weeks as he takes a well-deserved Long Service Leave break. I feel very blessed in being given the opportunity to work once again with the St Patrick’s community while Mr Thomas is away.

In 2010 I spent a term at the College and as a result became acutely aware of the wonderful opportunities provided to students and moreover the student success that I witnessed.

On my first Morning at the College I visited TAFE SA (Elizabeth Campus) where Mr Prokopec, Mr Forster and myself met with lecturers to have a discussion around our partnership and how we can achieve the best outcomes for our students. I would like to thank the lectures for their time and their ongoing work with our students.

I would like to remind the community about our Open Night on Tuesday 24 June from 4-8pm. I would encourage all students to talk to others with in the wider community about their experiences at St Patrick’s. Year 10 students in most schools will be looking very closely at their potential pathways over the next few months and for many students St Patrick’s Technical College will be a career springboard opportunity.
