Boundary changes coming to schools in the Findlay Creek Community (2024)
The Ottawa Catholic School Board has approved the new Findlay Creek Elementary School attendance boundary and associated boundary revisions to St. Bernard, St. Thomas More and St. Mary elementary schools. Consequently, the existing boundaries of St. Francis Xavier, St. Mark and St. Patrick's high schools are also affected. These changes will go into effect at the opening date of the new school in September 2024. Visit the Board website for more details.
School Uniform Policy
SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY
The school uniform at St. Patrick’s High School is both a source of pride and identification for the school. By registering at St. Patrick’s, a student is agreeing to uphold the uniform regulations from the time they arrive at school until the end of the school day, including the lunch break. Students who fail to comply with school uniform expectations may be sent home to change into the school uniform or they may be assigned a consequence.
Uniform clothing is ordered through TOP MARKS, our supplier. Orders are placed through the company, and clothing is sent directly to students’ homes by courier.
