How it all began
Delany College was originally known as Patrician Brothers’ High School (Years 7-10). Established in 1942, it was one of many Patrician schools in New South Wales and throughout the world.
In 1997 the school became a co-educational College (Years 7-12), to reflect and meet the changing needs of the community.
In honour of its rich Patrician heritage, the College was named after the Patrician Brothers’ founder, Bishop Daniel Delany.
Named after the great saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick, the Patrician Brothers were founded in Ireland in 1808. At that time in Ireland, ordinary people, and particularly the young, faced bleak futures in a degraded and often violent world. Education, in its many forms, became the main way the early brothers tried to help the people around them, and thus built a more Christian and hopeful society.
Today, Delany College continues to follow the expression of Daniel Delany's vision. Our College is distinctively Patrician because our faith in Jesus Christ is not separated from the everyday realities of life. Rather, we seek to recognise and proclaim the presence of Christ in all people and in all of creation.
Rejoicing in hope, through prayer, Eucharist and care for those most in need, as the future unfolds we enthusiastically build on these Patrician traditions.
