History:  St Patrick's College was originally founded in 1929 as Christian Brothers College, as an all-boys school. The school was situated on the Gregory Street side of where the current school is. In the late 1800's, the river side of today's St Patrick's College was occupied by St Joseph's school. When the Sisters of St Joseph moved to North Mackay, the Christian Brothers acquired the river side land. On the river side was CBC's primary school and on the Gregory Street side was CBC's secondary school. During a renewal process, the school became known as "St Patrick's Christian Brothers College. In 1987 St Patrick's became what it is today. A renewal process resulted in Our Lady of Mercy College (an all-girls school) becoming a co-educational school for lower high school (grades 8-10) and St Patrick's becoming a co-educational school for upper high school (grades 11 and 12.)
