St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School Kogarah was opened in 1862 and led by the Sisters of Charity and Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart for 100 years. Since 1986, St Patrick’s has been led by lay principals. Today, the school models itself on the likeness of St Patrick, our patron saint, and aspires to be a community that prays and works together, and endeavours to be the light of Christ for others.
