Terms of Use

The St Patrick’s College portal, REALM, is an all in one platform incorporating a learning management system, portal and intranet.

REALM allows St Patrick’s College to enhance our digital learning footprint and streamline the delivery of this content to best meet the learning needs of our students so that they may reach their potential. This is in line with our whole school plan to develop a culture of improvement and performance.

REALM is the portal for members of our college community with three primary uses:
1. Publishing information in a web environment (online collaboration);
2. An interactive space for teachers and students in their subject classes;
3. Communicating with our parenting community. Information will be published that is related to our school’s academic and co-curricular program, and information services for the administrative operations of the college.

Information on the St Patrick’s College portal is available to the students, staff, co curricular staff, board members and parents of our college community.

The member of staff or student who publishes information will be responsible for the content. Content must be appropriate in an educational context or related to the general operations of the college.

To use the St Patrick’s College portal an individual must be an authorised network account user with a valid password.

The St Patrick’s College community of students, staff, board members and parents will each hold individual network accounts and unique passwords.

It is illegal to use the St Patrick’s College portal without authenticating as an authorised account holder in the St Patrick’s College network.

It is illegal to use another person’s account and/or password.
