St. Patrick Regional Secondary School encourages students to develop their core competencies, including intellectual, personal, social, and emotional proficiencies while learning. Core Competencies are lifelong skills of logic that are taught to encourage our students to constantly challenge themselves to inquire. As they grow, students learn to develop ‘independence in more complex, varied contexts’ while applying the six core competencies: Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Communication, Personal Awareness and Responsibility, Positive Personal and Cultural Identity, and Social Awareness and Responsibility.
