A true Patrician is one who feels the pain and deprivations that his fellow beings suffer and understands his/her social responsibility. Every year the students, staff, management, well-wishers and parents of St.Patricks Academy, Bengaluru come together and organize the fund-raising event "JAMBOREE" for charity. The proceeds from the event are given to different needy individuals and institutions serving those in the margins of our society.
