The Congregation of the Brothers of St. Patrick was founded by Bishop Daniel Delany in the year 1808. The Congregation derives its name from the Great Apostle of Ireland, St. Patrick, who in his time fought ignorance, injustice, wickedness and immorality, just as our founder did in his own time. The founder realized that the root of universal demoralization was ignorance and hence he began to impart moral education. He had in mind the religious, moral and literary education of children in schools.
The Brothers came to India in 1875 and took charge of a large Anglo Indian Orphanage and School in Chennai. This seed has grown into a large tree spreading its branches to various parts of the country, producing thousands of eminent men and women who have contributed and continue to contribute to the country in various capacities.
In our commitment to serve people, we find our primary inspiration in the life and teachings of JESUS CHRIST. We experience anxiety in this period of rapid change as we are beckoned beyond the bounds of safe securities. However, like the founding Patricians, we will step forward in faith with the courage of convictions and rely on the power of the Almighty God.
WE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT: Our apostolic endeavours are inspired and nurtured by the Good News of Jesus Christ.
The Congregation of the Brothers of St. Patrick or the Patrician Brothers as they are popularly known began in the small town of Tullow, Ireland on 2nd February, 1808...Read More
Are leaders born or created? Well, some are born but all are created by the need of the day. Yes, leadership is a skill that needed to be honored. The leaders in the past who destroyed the mountains and lopped a way to uplift us to the present civilization are honored when the young leaders are appreciated. The investiture ceremony of St. Patrick's Academy kindled the aspirations of our young leaders to create a new world. The well decorated ceremonial hall was dignified with the presence of Rev. Brother Christopher Dawes, parents, teachers, and our honorable guest, Rev.Bro.George Xavier, Deputy Congregational Leader of Brothers of St. Patrick. Rev.Bro.Christopher administered the Oath of Office for the Senior School Head boy and Head Girl. The house Captains were sworn in and the Oath of their office was administered by the respective House Mistresses. Rev.Bro.George Xavier, inspired the young patrician leaders with his words of wisdom.
“They inspire you, they entertain you, and you end up learning a ton even when you don't know it.”
A teacher is the eternal guru and guide, whose firm and loving grooming has shaped generations from time immemorial. To honour the hard work and determination towards the profession, the students of St. Patrick's Academy celebrated Teachers' Day virtually on 4th September 2021 with high spirits. The celebration began with a prayer song followed by a welcome dance by the little ones. The Principal, Rev. Bro.Tomy Varghese, shared an encouraging message on Teachers' Day. Students surprised their teachers by putting on a dazzling show with zestful dance, drama, song, etc. to symbolize their love, respect, acknowledgment and gratitude. The staff had a fun-loving day at school where they flaunted their talents on stage with various performances that made the day a remarkable one.
