For many years McAuley, Rice and Horan have represented St Patrick’s. 2010 saw the addition of a new member to that very exclusive club, Chisholm House. Many important and worthy people were considered, however after great deliberation and voting by both students and staff, it was Caroline Chisholm’s legacy and teachings which were chosen. Caroline Chisholm came to be known as the ‘immigrant’s friend’. After marrying and moving with her husband to Australia, she discovered a vocation for assisting immigrants. When Caroline came to Australia she discovered many people who needed help. She dedicated herself to caring for women who found themselves in a new land with no support. After many years of thank-less work, she returned to England but continued her campaign. Long after Caroline left this country her legacy lives on. It is the qualities of compassion, generosity, equality, community and support that Chisholm House endeavours to continue.
