Huge congratulations to our teams who won their Division finals - Junior 1 (Year 9&10) Netball. and Boys Basketball.  Congratulations also to the teams who made their finals - U15 Football, Ōtaki Intermediate Blue Netball (Year 7&8) and Ōtaki Intermediate Gold (Year 7&8) Netball.

The College is also very proud to share the following email from Brendan Holland, Co-coach of the St Patrick's College U15 Football Team: 

"Today I coached our St Pats team in the U15 College Sport Wellington Division to a victory over Otaki. It was the third game we had against your team, the previous two your team won 4-3 and 2-1 and we had already commented just how professional they were – great ambassadors to their school, parents, and community. They had deservedly gone through the grade unbeaten but had great humility with it. Todays final was another tight tussle and yet again your team showed a level of professionalism and focus well beyond their years.
I must offer a special mention to your coach, a gentleman named Joseph – a total professional and a joy to spar with across the 3 games. He is a credit to your community and you would do well to rope him in for further development activities across the school.
Your boys turned up early, wore your colours as prescribed, trained hard pre-match, played the game with spirit and acted professional to the very end.
While defeat was not their goal, I hope they are given acknowledgement for being outstanding as representatives of your school."
