Professional Achievements & Recognition

The staff at A.B. Paterson College work hard to achieve the best outcomes for each and every student through their commitment to the College’s Motto of Excellence, Care and Commitment.

The College commends and celebrates the achievement of all of our staff and highlights the achievements of a number of staff here, as and when such recognition is due and timely.
